  1. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all! I have a Golf 8 GTE on order (due for delivery in April) and am curious about E-mode range. I've been keeping up with the forum but haven't seen any posts about the Mk 8 GTE range. Volkswagen state a WLTP electric range of 32miles on their website, which seems low for the larger 13kWh...

  4. Kia Soul EV
    Hi, I was just wondering about the trip meter and the efficiency displayed in the Soul. You're able to reset the miles/kWh meter in the settings, I did this and also deleted the history in the EV driving settings. My first trip seemed to give 'as is' efficiency accuracy, but over the dozen or...
  5. General EV Discussion
    Hi, was just wondering if anyone has any experience of these Kumho tyres, has or is using them on their cars. The 2015 Kia Soul im getting will be needing a new pair of tyres in the not too distant future and looking at these they seem quite good (B rating got efficiency and C for wet 70db) and...
  6. Kia Soul EV
    Hi, I'm looking at a 2015 27kWh Soul, I've noticed that it had 3 x new tyres (Joyroad HP RX3 -budget tyre?) But they other the is still a Nexen on the offside front. My question is, are only specific types classed as 'Low rolling resistance' and how much affect would fitting these make in terms...
  7. Kia Soul EV
    Hi, I'm looking at a 2015 27kWh Soul with 45k miles on the clock. I'm just wondering what peoples experience is with battery degradation with these cars, I was assuming that it wasn't nearly as bad as the Leaf but I've seen a few users on here mention a SOH around 91%. I think I may have to get...

  9. Kia Soul EV
    Hi, I've been looking at getting my first EV, after initially looking at the Leaf 30kwh I tried a Soul EV 27kwh at the weekend and was very impressed. The car was a 2017 27kwh with 40k on the clock for £12,500, condition was good and on a 15 mile typical journey I was getting 5.2 miles / kwh...
  10. Nissan Leaf40
    Hi all, New joiner here. Some help please! I currently have an old Nissan leaf and am looking to stay within the Nissan line-up. I'm really interested in the Octopus V2G bundle; however, it only offers the 40kWh model. I was looking to get into the larger battery model (the 62 Tekna) but am...

    Just been reading about the launch of Zoe in 2012 was fitted with Energy™ EV low rolling resistance tyres .... well I just bought a 2013 model and it has bog standard run of the mill tyres on it the same most other cars such as ICE cars and was wondering 2 things , what effect does this have on...
  12. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hi all - I'm new to this forum and a brand new owner of a 2014 Nissan Leaf 24, my first EV. I'm very excited. So I'm trying to get to grips with the car's range. Having read enough on this forum I now understand a few things: ignore the GOM (had to search around to find out what that meant)...
  13. General Renault Z.E. Discussion
    Today I bought a 2011 Renault Kangoo ZE van for £5,900 inc. VAT. Renault said that the lease battery state of health is 78% so I expected it to have a range of roughly 110x0.78=86 miles. I bought it fully charged and gently nursed it up the motorway at 55 mph but it was into the red zone after...
  14. Jaguar I-PACE
    Hi there! I had the opportunity to borrow an I-Pace for a few days. Loved the handling! I did what I normally do. Make a review and a top speed video. Hope you like it!
  15. Hyundai Kona
    Indian press reports that European manufactured Kona 64 kWh will come with a maximum range of 484 km vice 452 km (286 miles), but complains this will not increase for 64 kWh Konas available in India. The report states that it does not know how this increase will be achieved and speculates...
  16. Other EV Makes and Models
    Hi Everyone, I was testing my Ampera in this nice and cold weather how much is the mpg using it in only the "hybrid" mode. I did 65 miles in total and got 21-22mpg which, in my view, is sh*t. Though the heating is on max mode with a temp set of 23C-25C and usually doing only 4-8 miles in one go...
  17. General EV Discussion
    Hi there, I'm new to the world of electric cars having only recently bought a five-year VW E-Up, So forgive me if asking an obvious question. I'm noticing the mileage I have seems to drain more quickly than the distance I am actually travelling. So for example I may do 5 miles but my range has...
  18. Tesla Model 3
    Is this possible? The car failed to charge last night and the nearest SuC with space is 42 miles away, other than Edinburgh but it is currently full. I will check tonight before I leave if I can get into it but if not will I make it to Perth or do I try a quick charge at Dunfermline or Kinross?
  19. BMW i3
    Serious predicament! I specified a 120ah i3, with the suite interior and the i3 plus package this week, through a salary sacrifice scheme. I test drove one of the i3's and it was a blast to be fair. Once a month I'd be looking to do a 120 mile journey (100 miles of it being motorway), although...
  20. BMW i3
    Hi. I’ve just bought a June made 2016 BMW i3 and I was wondering what the mileage range was ? Mine is currently doing around 60 miles which I am quite disappointed with. Is this right ? (I’m aware that the battery range will be less considering its winter and I’m using the lights / windscreen...
