  1. Have Ecotricity given up?

    General Charging Discussion
    Is that including the new BiK rates ?
  2. Home Charger Power Options

    General Charging Discussion
    I've read here that the cost of installing 3 phase electricity if its even available is around Ā£6k. Still reckon it's an option ? :) Add to that, you say that as batteries get bigger the charging times Get longer but that's petrol thinking. Charge when you are half full Instead of waiting until...
  3. BMW 330E Range questions

    General EV Discussion
    The other advantage of a bigger battery is that it gives an incentive to plug in. So for example someone with 13 miles range might think "not worth the effort ", if it's double or triple that then they can think "oh that means I can do my whole commute on electric and commute for peanuts and...
  4. The Hyundai forum is not just ...

    ...."For discussing the Hyundai Ioniq" :D
  5. How much did you save in 2019?

    General EV Discussion
    How are you finding the Michelin's? Do they add to noise , reduce efficiency? I've read different things.
  6. To change or not to change, that is the question!

    General EV Discussion
    with that mileage id be getting a tesla 3 long range or maybe a model S for two reasons 1. access to reliable chargers 2. longer range (doh) but that extra mileage could easily be the difference between not having to stop for a charge until you get home 3.same access to unreliable charger...
  7. AC charge rates?

    Kia Soul EV
    They shouldn't be calling it a 30 in the advert headline so I'm not surprised the 3.6 is wrong. And why mention is battery owned since they never did a battery lease version.
  8. Rear View Camera

    Kia Soul EV
    It's not provided in current Souls. The new one will have it I beleive.
  9. Kia e-Niro range comparison by CarWow

    Kia Niro
    That is probably the best range comparison I've seen and makes WhatCars drive for 15 minutes and then extrapolate, range test look like the travesty it was. Anyway getting back to the vid, they did a great job, adding some interest along the way. Woudl be interesting to see a follow up where...
  10. i3 slow charging on home 7kW

    BMW i3
    I'm using the cable that came with the car. Blue. It IS thinner than the chunkier one the Kia had but on the box, which i kept its says charges up to 7.4. SO, not that. Anyway hopefuly in few weeks time I'll hand this back and get back into a Soul with proper doors and double the range šŸ¤ž .
  11. i3 slow charging on home 7kW

    BMW i3
    Charging right now. The charge rate as calculated by estimated completion time is a pathetic 2.9 and turned out to be 3.4 to actual time (though it only finished 15 min earlier) (note, this is starting from 74% full) As measured by capacity added (and using 42kWH as the battery size) the first...
  12. Crazy GOM, decent mileage. i3 120mAh

    BMW i3
    Got to say, the Soul was bang on, no guessing.
  13. i3 slow charging on home 7kW

    BMW i3
    Thanks. Yes if that was my Soul it would have looked like 5 5 5 5 0 :)
  14. Lease extension

    Kia Soul EV
    "you were lucky" I was not offered that option via DE despite asking three times, had it been available I would almost certainly have taken it and as a bonus wouldn't have been in this crappy i3. Perhaps I should have gone through Lex rather than DE that didnt occur to me. Hopefully your...
  15. A hydrogen city by Toyota.

    General EV Discussion
    False dichotomy. The hate is for several reasons Often its used as an excuse to wait to buy BEV or develop BEV "don't buy that BEV from <competitor> because it will be obsoleted by hydrogen in a few years time buy our ICE for now" Also because the reality is that most H2 today is made by steam...
  16. i3 slow charging on home 7kW

    BMW i3
    My Kia Soul charged at 5 kw/hr on my 7kW home charger, i could almost set my watch by it. Work out what % free, divide the 30kwH capacity by 5, job done. Now with an i3, I noticed the predicted finish times seemed to be a fair bit longer than I'd have expected on the Soul but put it down to the...
  17. Small dent on door, worth repairing before lease is up or not?

    Kia Soul EV
    I would get it repaired. Get a quote at a "little knocks" type place. My gut feel would be maybe Ā£100-Ā£150 for that (if thr paint hasn't cracked and its just a dent) vs possibly whole door respray from the lease co at considerably more. Given mine tried to charge me nearly Ā£800 for a charging...
  18. The EVEZY Discussion thread

    General EV Discussion
    True, it doesn't alter my hatred of the i3 though :D And the other options are much more expensive though i might investigate the Leaf option someone mentioned. Yeh i found that, I was hoping for an option that folded automatically when you switched off the power.

  20. The EVEZY Discussion thread

    General EV Discussion
    well sort of except it was not as a tryout but a stop gap so I'm now stuck with it since in the time I have left I doubt there will be another come available. However if I was ever tempted to buy the rumoured battery upgrade i3 coming out this year I've certainly had that temptation squashed...
