  8. Rapid Charge Adaptors

    General Charging Discussion
    I changed from a Leaf to an Ioniq BEV last year, and am getting increasingly frustrated by the lack of CCS chargers in the UK, and the high failure rate amongst them (especially Ecotricity). Has anyone seen or thought about making an adaptor from Chademo or Tesla Supercharger to a CCS plug? I...
  9. When will we see used Ioniqs?

    First Generation Ioniq
    Suggested to SWMBO the other day that we look at an ex-demonstrator Ioniq and she asked how much that would be. I said about £22k - which went down like a lead balloon... So, my question is when are we likely to start seeing some ex-PCH or ex-PCP Ioniq EVs? Can anyone with insider knowledge...
  10. BMS data from the Ioniq using "Torque"

    First Generation Ioniq
    No degradation reported on my 23 month old Ioniq. Car charges to 95% actual when it reports 100%. Quite a contrast to the UK Leaf24, which by the 2 year point had dropped to average 91% State of Health. Is the Ioniq BMS that good? Time will tell. Ioniq Electric datafest- the “Torque” app

    Hi all, looking for some advice please. I already have the full electric Ioniq, and I love it. Racked up >53k miles in 18 months. Now the wife wants the hybrid (not plug in) version. I'm doing my sums etc but what sort of MPG are people seeing for someone who does limited mileage around town...

  14. Leaf30 to Ioniq?

    First Generation Ioniq
    Thinking about swapping my Leaf30 for an ioniq EV? What are peoples thought's on this? I seen online that the ioniq is better at efficiency, especially on the motorway. We usually do a Cornwall trip, ~380 miles and the leaf30 okay but we have to stop 5 times to rapid charge. Would this still be...

  16. Strong regen!

    First Generation Ioniq
    I saw -87kW regen braking in the Ioniq yesterday. Interesting that this matches the maximum power output. I guess it makes sense, because we know that the charger is 100kW capable. What is also interesting is that this was available with 90% battery charge and in cold weather. This is nearly...
