Macan EV? Similar body style to ipace, premium brand etc and should be fast. Not sure on prices though.
That A6 actually looks pretty nice, apart from those things at the rear. Found this little article. Sub 4 seconds...Perhaps you should try the M50 & make up your own mind about it. I'm struggling to think of anything else that fits your criteria since you've excluded Kia & Tesla.
There's an electric A6 on the horizon that's supposed to be kicking off at £50K but I'd guess that you'd not want the poverty spec after having an iPace?
I suppose it's only really going to affect people who can't charge at home and do more than say 200 miles in a day - which I suspect isn't a huge amount.Tesla are the only one that report out of service chargers as far as I know.
Manufacturers have to state the NEDC (now WLTP) range tests for vehicles sold in Europe. These are wildly optimistic for EVs & you'll see that many manufacturers have a range calculator on their website so you can enter your personal driving parameters & get an accurate estimate of summer & winter range.
Interesting, I wonder why these people on the radio were having such problems. They never mentioned what cars they had though and I'm guessing like reviews, it will always be the few disgruntled who shout the loudest!Zapmap reports but I'm not sure on how quick the reports come through.
Tesla nav gives you the status of available bays.
They said that they were being directed to chargers, presumably by their navs? That's what my first thought was, but when they got there the chargers were either taken up or those remaining were broke. It would have been helpful if they had said what cars they were in though.The DT has been a riot ( plenty writeups on EVs recently )..and I've made ever so many new friends over the past few weeks
We were directed to Tebay on the 27th and thought "sod that"...it was bound to be busy.
We arrived home with zero range but enough in the tank.
The nav will direct you to all known charger networks ( not just tesla), I suspect that many didn't know that.
Yeah it would be kinda difficult to inform of queue sizes lol Although, come to think of it, would it be so hard? Google Maps uses people's phones to determine traffic density, so could Tesla use GPS signals from Tesla cars around the charging station to gauge an estimate - obviously just an estimate as some may just be parked up not needing a charge. Not sure how it would work with other manufacturers but that would be pretty cool.I wonder just how many had little experience in making long journeys , using an EV?
The nav will inform tesla drivers of available bays, granted.
What that can't do is inform anyone of the queue , should no bays be available.
What the media did not run a story on was the, say, 400k EV drivers had no issues charging.
What I won't be doing is going on my longer commutes on less than 100% charge , just in case AND will even top up the car well before needed ,again, just in case.
