On CCS there's no issues, but on a 7kW AC post the charge stops when you unlock the car. It should auto restart, but doesn't always.
It's possible the PSA BEVs heat the battery pack in cold weather.... charged it yesterday to 80%/130 miles ... Drove 15/20 miles in eco mode 10 miles of duel carriageway and it dropped to 78 miles. 52 mile drop in 20 mins. Is that normal? 50kW battery
Hi,It's possible the PSA BEVs heat the battery pack in cold weather.
E.g VW ID.3 does this, if the battery is <13C I think, and it takes a chunk of energy to do this! Had an ID.3 briefly, and a short trip of a mile to shops & back last winter would see me getting around 2 to 2.5 miles/kWh! I didn't keep this car very long, lots of things I didn't like about it & I much preferred the Ioniq 38 I was planning to sell on. The same trip, same temps, in Ioniq would see me getting my usual 4.7 m/kWh. Big difference is the Hyundai/Kias don't bother preheating the battery at start of a cold trip. Maybe that's worse for the battery, who knows? But I'm generally driving around using 20-30 kW power, and the motor's rated 100 kW, so I don't think the battery gets stressed by my gentle driving. I believe VW have had a lot of complaints about this power-hogging, and something's getting changed in the s'ware to fix/ameliorate this issue.
All I can say about your figures is that the figures you're seeing are atrocious. My GOM in cold weather with 100% SOC and 38.4 kWh usable (probably 41 or 42-ish total?) will show me 170 mile range. And if I drive around a bit, the range drops in line with the miles I've done. I simply do not see sudden losses of 20 miles, and I don't see why you should either.
Ioniq 28 & 38 are the most efficient BEVs around, along with Model 3. Looks like PSA have a lot of catching up to do!
When I took the car in to question the poor range the test they did was a joke. The fully charged it and said the car says 171 miles so all is ok. I s🤬🤬🤬 you not that’s all they didHi,
thanks for that. That’s what we thought so it’s being looked over by a Peugeot specialist, not that they will be able to change much if it’s a design flaw.
we originally wanted to get the Hyundai Ioniq. Will see what they say. Appreciate the feedback
