just been out in the car and when I got to it the battery had gone down to from 51% -> 24% charge. All it had done was sit on the roadside since lunchtime.

Hmm...

Hopefully just a 1st charge / use issue rather than a battery issue in a brand new car!

You definitely need to get to used to what the various battery meters etc say. My e208 is very sensitive to the driving experience immediately before a charge. So if I careen downhill for 4 or 5 miles and then charge up, it will report a massive range, whereas if I drive uphill it will be poor.

Definitely sounds like your better half needs to get clued up as to where the chargers are and how to use them!! Worth getting that nailed before you run out of electrons!

Got something to say?

Nattering about EVs; are you thinking about owning one? Do you own one? Are you terrified of owning one?

A thread for those with range anxiety, eco friendliness and petrol heads alike!
