  1. PHEV taxis blocking Chargers

    General Charging Discussion
    What's the view on PHEV taxis blocking charge points when BEVs need a charge? I arrived at one of the new free to use PodPoint rapids at a Lidl in Bristol having driven from Southampton and was wanting to make the 100-mile return journey. A Leaf taxi was using the Chademo and a Mercedes PHEV...

  7. For Sale Like new Mitsubishi charging cable w/case and gloves £150

    Electric Vehicle Classifieds
    I got this charging cable with my Outlander, but kept it when I sold the Outlander since I thought I might use it with my Kia Soul, but I have only used the cable that came with the Kia so this is surplus to my needs. It has been used a couple of times and shows basically no signs of use. The...

  12. Weird Battary SOC in my BMW X5 40e

    General BMW EV Discussion
    Recently I've lost electric range in my 2015-Late BMW X5 40e from average 20km to just 8km. When scanned time to time it shows cell module 1,2,3 and 6 faulty and sometime it shows only module 1 is faulty and strange enough sometimes no error!. Therefore I believe it's correct to assume that...

    Kia Niro
    I have moved to a Niro PHEV from a Leaf 40kwh and I am glad I have done it!

  17. EGolf Vs New Leaf 40 which one

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    I have a Leaf 40kwh and I am not that impressed with the real world range and the issue with Rapidgate. I was looking at either the PHEV GTE or the eGolf.

As a recap my commute is around 6.5 miles uphill with fast stretches and lots of roundabouts on the way in...
