I have seen a possible couple of solutions.. evnotify which is an obd dongle and also “tronity” which is app based.. although with a subscription.. haven’t found much info on either yet tho.
I bought this one but haven't needed to use it for my eNiro. I have used it for our other car which is a 2.2L diesel Honda and worked great.Can anybody make any recommendations for a battery booster? I'd like one for emergencies, but I'm getting confused by the various amp ratings and the descriptions that say "Suitable for x.x l engine".
I collected my E Niro 4 a month ago and had a 186 mile return trip, all motorway and dual carriageway at 70mph give or take. I started with an indicated 268 miles of range and finished with 62 miles remaining at 33% so your commute should be easily achievable, unless in sub artic conditions I would guess it was around 8-10 degrees. I'm a fairly light footed driver, don't hammer up then brake at the last minute, ease of early, just a different driving technique. Cruising at 65mph will also extend the range for not a great deal longer in travel time. On my limited experience of using the 7Kw charger at the local Tesco I estimate an 8% charge per hour so 4 hours would give you and additional 32% assuming it's a 7Kw at your workplace. Then top up when you get home ready for the next day. Hope that helpsHi all,
I am terribly sorry if it's the wrong group or if I am ruining an ongoing conversation. I need so me advice from anyone who has has a Kia E-neo 64Kwh model 3 that claims a range of 280miles. I have a work commute of 93 miles one way (186 both ways) all on mortorway. I am alone in the car and no other weight and intending on driving it between 70 miles per hour +/-10% on overtaking. At work, I am can use the EV charging point for 4 hours. I have the following questions.
- on full charge, can I make the roud trip of 186 miles at 70mph on the motorway in the worst of conditions such as winter?
- is 4 hours that I get to charge the car at work sufficient for full charge?
- what is the average cost of full charge at home?
I am thinking of getting this car on a lease via a salary sacrifice. My current diesel car commute costs me £20 on fuel on a single round trip and I am looking to see if a Kia e nero can help save on costs.
Thank you very much for your help with this.
At top of hill (even whilst descending it?) just pop it into Neutral (errr the car must be powered on and in ready state naturally). at foot of hill just pop it back into D and resume normally.Peter, how do you force the discs to be used? I have some steep hills where I live but the ruddy thing just adds an extra notch to the regen when I hit the brake pedal.
That’s interesting. I didn’t think the car would be so daft as to allow you to do that On Prius, pressing the brake whilst hitting the gas, temporarily disables the propulsion power. Must try it soon thoughThere's a section on one of my regular country drives that has a stretch of level straight road that is always traffic-free. I use that to de-rust my discs. I apply the brakes hard with the left foot and also the accelerator with the right foot to power very hard and force the car to move forwards against the brakes. Speed controlled by balancing the brake pressure with the left foot. As the car is under full power there is no regen possible and the physical brakes get some serious exercise. 25 to 50 metres of that will keep the discs clean if done regularly.
