Love it!

Well all this must be thoughtfully considered in terms of the car's name

Lorax Konan
Lorax Kevo
Lorax Kowner

Although the barbarian nature of Konan does resonate ...

And just to add to the thoughts ... you should always test a potential name and hence resort to google. Search pulls up:

KONAN - Konan is a supporting character in the manga and anime Naruto. Konan was smart, stoic, calm, and level-headed.
KEVO - is a smart lock, a BrandMan
KOWNER - actually a popular surname for a few different research type people: Israeli historian/psychologist the most prominent

What's with the gratuitous apostrophes? These words aren't possessive and no letters are left out.

Apocryphal! :geek:

Good point, I'm the first to admit English is not my strong point. I understand the rules but I always forget them :?

I've now fixed it.

I notice Nespresso have just introduced a new coffee pod called Hawaii Kona. Described as :
Renowned for its beautiful aromatic richness and rarity, the flavour profile of Hawaii Kona will pleasantly surprise you with a fruity bouquet, subtle nutty notes and silky texture.

"Silky texture" I think relates to our EV. Not sure about the "nutty notes", though. Then again...

Cheers
