Apostrophe Correction!

Post by DeskJockey »

@Matty only just noticed that the tag line says "The Thrill of Leasing EV's". Not sure when that changed (you'll say it was months ago, I'm sure)! But, there shouldn't be an apostrophe as you're not indicating the possessive, but the plural.

Firstly, yes it's been like that for months! Although as 65% of you visit on mobile, it's no wonder people haven't noticed.

It's a clarity thing, more than grammatical. EVs just doesn't look as clear, and it used to be acceptable but not so much now, apparently:
