  1. Dyson scraps electric car

    General EV Discussion
    Just seen this on the BBC. Yet more job losses in the UK I imagine for Brexit Dyson.

    Drastic measures - please enlighten us?
  3. Orbit Energy

    General Charging Discussion
    I've never heard of them and don't know if they are any good, but they are easily the cheapest on Martin Lewis's Money Saving Expert site. There is no early exit fee, so I thought I would give them a try for electricity. They just sent me a referral number if anyone else is interested. We both...
  4. Servicing cost - £250?!

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    I wonder if you can take an eGolf to a Kia dealer if the servicing is cheaper there?
  5. When did you see your first eGolf?

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    It took 2 months to see my first and now 8 months later I've just seen 2 and 3 in quick succession. A grey one outside VW Hadwins in Lindale and a white one parked next to mine in Sedbergh. I've tried a few journeys out of the Lakes but having to rely on Ecotricity rapid charges hasn't been a...
  6. Shock horror: VW admits emission problems.

    General Volkswagen EV Forum
    VW can't cope with new emissions tests Interesting article saying that VW is going to temporarily cut car production because of problems over emissions. Wonder how it will affect those still waiting for their orders?

    Isn't it nice to be driving something exclusive, rather than in comparison 2 for a penny Teslas!
  8. When did you see your first eGolf?

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    I've owned my eGolf for over 2 months now and only just seen my first other one - at a charging point on the motorway. I live in the Lakes so maybe a bit rarer then down south. The owner had this blog: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/diary-ev-newbie-part-3-dan-prior/ So just wondering about...
  9. March 1st eGolf Owners Club

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    As far as I know you can't deactivate it. If it starts to brake if you put your foot on the accelerator it over rides it. I live in the Lakes and experience it quite a lot as I always drive in d with no regen. Usually picks up speed limits entering villages but not always. Has also come on on a...

  11. Car ordered

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    Sound interesting. First I've heard of this. Any more information please?
  12. Heat pump location

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    That's great thanks - you're better on the internet than me as I couldn't find anything. With so many extra bits and pieces it's perhaps a little easier to understand why it's an extra £800+ ?!
  13. Heat pump location

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    Very interesting thank you. Do you have an eGolf ? If so any chance of some photos of what to look for to check heat pump or not please? Alternatively I could post a photo of mine which should have the heat pump and you could perhaps point out, if it's not already obvious, which bits are part...
  14. OBDeleven for e-Golf

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    What a great thread! All a bit confusing for a new comer like me but really interesting stuff thanks.
  15. % charge?

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    That's great thanks - really useful. But I'd also be interested to hear if you think it's a good idea even though VW doesn't seem to recommend it?
