R Symons Ltd is the largest supplier of used Teslas in the UK. We are unique in our genuine enthusiasm for these vehicles, and our conscious approach to vehicle sales.  Richard has been a Tesla and EV owner since 2015 and so has a tremendous breadth of real world knowledge. He converted his good friend Jo to the world of EVs and went to build this business and his fantastic team!

As a team we are committed to bringing the highest standard of customer service to our customers.  Switching from Fuel to Electric can be daunting, so we are on hand to guide you through the journey to electric motoring.


With real world knowledge of Electric Vehicles currently available across the market we want to make the switch to electric as stress free and fun as possible.  We’re also dedicated to the further education on the economical and environmental benefits of driving electric.

Car enthusiasts, vehicle sales and now the UK's leading electric car specialists. There are plenty of garages selling electric cars now but not many actually know a great deal about them, especially Teslas. We are the refreshing difference and our knowledge, you should find, exceeds that of anyone else.

    Richard (aka The Hawk) - The Owner, Director and man in charge.  Richard set up R Symons Ltd in 2010,  and has been providing amazing first hand knowledge to the EV Community ever since buying his own first electric car in 2015. His passion and personal knowledge of the market and vehicles is second to none.

    "I am unlike almost any other vehicle trader you are likely to meet. I set up my business because I am a true car enthusiast and I love buying and selling great cars and helping people find the right car for them.

    Initially, as a young lad, I completed a degree in product design but my ambitions to become a car designer were hard to fulfil. Over time the path of life lead me into the world of software where I was a UK director for an excellent company, but I had to step down from this job to commit time for family life upon the arrival of our daughter 2009. It was then in 2010 that I basically converted a hobby into a living and I’ve been playing with cars full time ever since!

    More recently I’ve become a real fan of electric cars and have been running my own 100% electric car since 2015. Yes… a ‘petrol head’ owning an electric car..! It is possible, and they’re great. We need to change, climate change is real, and this is a really positive step forward for sustainable personal transport. I’ll happily talk at length to any sceptics on the matter and I’m sure I’ll help convince you it’s a great way forward.

    With any car I sell or any advice I give, I pride myself on being honest, transparent and refreshingly different from your stereotypical car dealer. You will receive a friendly, personal, helpful and professional service. Even if you just want to call and chat about cars or ask for some advice - no problem!"

    R Symons are a very professional outfit who made selling my car a pleasant experience. The service is friendly and their pre sale recommendations are correct and sensibly priced. There were no surprises at any stage of the process. RG

    I could go on about the experience, but simply put if you want to buy a full electric car speak to the specialists; Richard and his crew at R. Symons. I looked at everything VW to Porsche, did not want a Tesla, called in to look at a secondhand Porsche that turned out to be sold, had a very interest... Read More
