RE: Just how many of the things are there?
There are 56 in the country, and as far as we know we are the extent of the private ownership. The rest are in the hands of demonstrator teams, some were made available to rental companies, and some with local authorities. Presumably, we're currently seeing a flush of cars that were contracted out for 2 years, and we'll no doubt see another flush of those out under 3 year contracts. (Mine will be one that will head back as a '3 year old' car at the end of the PCP.)
