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 Symons

    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!"

    Jo Webb

    Jo (aka The Aged Hipster) - Managing Director and Head of Sales,  Jo has a decades long background in premium retail and with extensive knowledge of Electric Vehicles and Tesla in particular, he will be able to advise on the best vehicle for your journey into electric motoring with a professional and personal service throughout.

    Sergiu Cociuba

    Sergiu (aka Power Serge) - General Manager and Product Specialist who also heads up our division for after market modifications such as window tinting, wraps, chrome deletes etc. Serge has great attention to detail and is always organised and attentive. If you would like advice on how to make your Tesla more individual Serge should be on your speed-dial. He has been a Tesla fan for many years and always follows the latest news so his product knowledge is second to none.

    Mark Lichtensteiger

    Mark (aka M2000) - Vehicle Preparation and Detailing Specialist -  The man in charge of how the cars are presented. Appraisals, valeting, and helping co-ordinate repair work as well as his ability to turn his hand to all sorts of mechanical tasks make him a fantastic asset. Takes pride in his work and always has the cars looking at their very best.

    We love this cheesy photo, taken as a joke but had to be used!

    Gints Reinis

    Gints (aka Ginster) - Photographer, Driver, Vehicle Preparation and all round handyman. Originally from Latvia Gints joined the team in 2020 and has blended straight in proving himself to be a valuable and flexible asset. He can turn his hand to most roles but also comes from a professional photography background so we will be making good use of his skills as we step up our game for online marketing and social media content.

So when we decided to sell our Model 3, we made the decision to let R Symons sell if for us - a fantastic experience overall! They arrang... Read More

    I've now sold three cars through R Symons. The latest process was just as simple and transparent as the others. While we waited a little longer to find the right buyer than with my previous cars, Jo was convinced that he would sell my car for a top price and so it proved. Even though the commission ...
