Car of The Week… Nissan Skyline GTR R34

The Car of the Week this week is the 1999 Nissan Skyline GTR R34!



This nostalgia inducing car, made iconic through it’s roles in many motoring movies including fast and furious, more importantly its unique engineering using twin ceramic intercooled turbo chargers to remove all turbo-lag. This beautiful car also used six individual throttle valves to allow each cylinder to act as singular engines.



Mr H was kind enough to take out this policy with us, which includes both the benefits of salvage retention and agreed value.

Could Number Of Public Electric Car Charging Locations Exceed Petrol Stations?

Here in the UK, it probably does not come as a surprise to many motorists to hear that quite a lot of car owners are switching to electric vehicles. In fact, in the first 3 months of this year, in excess of 115 electric cars were registered on a daily basis.Electric Car

As the number of electric cars on our roads increase there will no doubt need to be a good supply of charging points. Presently, most owners of electric cars charge their vehicles up at home overnight. However, there are electric charging stations located at 98% of motorway service stations that are dotted around various parts of the UK.

Some interesting research has been carried out by Nissan, who like many car manufacturers build electric vehicles, into the number of petrol stations and public electric charging points. For instance, back in 1970 there were 37,539 petrol stations yet by the end of last year there were only 8,472. It is the opinion of Nissan that by August 2020 the number of petrol stations could have dropped to less than 7.870.

Electric CarIn recent years, the number of public electric car charging locations has increased quite significantly. For instance, by the end of 2012 there were 913, by the end of 2013 there were 1,962, by the end of 2014 the numbers had grown to 2,775 and by the end of last year there were 3,646 locations. It is predicted by Nissan that by August 2020 the number of public electric car charging locations could have reached 7,898.

As you can see, by the summer of 2020, it is forecast that, if the above patterns continue, there will be more electric car charging locations here in the UK than there will be petrol stations. How many people would have thought that this could potentially happen 10 years ago?
