My son is using one of the vehicles above, it's his boss's... brand new with only 65 miles on the clock when my son took it for the weekend.
Observation:
1: why the hell is everything on a car that relies on it's battery power 'Electric', for example... the mirrors, well no mirror per se, it's all done by camera's. To say this car is fully loaded is an understatement, it has lights everywhere, you open the door and find 'E-TRON' is projected onto the floor? it has every add on you can think off, sensors galore, HUD display. Put the heater on and bang, there go 15 miles in range.
2: my son had to put some charge into it, didn't use the 13amp supply at home as it takes an eternity, I mean, IIRC a nights charge might give you enough to cover 50 miles.. might, I can't recall the exact figure.
3: He took it to a fast-charging point in Harrow, left the car there to charge for a while, when he picked it up the bill was £15, this gave hin a range of 90 just miles???
4: The lights turn on as soon as you disarm it and I think, remain on when you get out and these are big bright lights, ok they are bound to be LED's but if you have to have auto lights why not use some smaller sidelights?
