Re: How clean is an EV?

Jelle I have considered the prospect of charging a EV using solar alone, a typical domestic with 4kw is probably going to take 2 days to charge a IPace and that is assuming full sun for long periods on summer, on overcast days it produced much less. My own 30KW solar Panels connected to the grid ave...

Re: How clean is an EV?

Chewy The CO2 generated in the production of oil I’m sure is significant and adds to the carbon footprint but I don’t know by how much nor do I know if that is taken into account in the official CO2 emissions of an ICE, logic says that it is. EVs The average life cycle emissions of power production ...

Re: How clean is an EV?

Sorry Chewy you have rose colored spectacles, the 85 kw is the cars capacity it takes no account of the efficiency, transmission and conversion cost of electricity, around 50% of our power is non fossil fuel , most of the rest is gas. A modern gas combined cycle generator is around 60% efficient, ad...

Re: Age 55 is the cut off for ev's apparently?

Most of the Tesla drivers I see are well past 55 the odd IPace driver is too. Most of the under 55 drivers spending that kind of money would likely buy Porsche or M5 / AMG if they have families and to hell with the tax advantage.

Re: Electricity Supplies

With new energy suppliers especially make sure you are not going to have a credit balance at the end of the contract, some have gone out of business leaving the customer as a unsecured creditor.
But then if you’re charging an EV bills will be higher anyway

Re: JLR looking for friends?

BMW got their fingers burnt the last time they tangled with the British car industry, so it’s doubtful that a take over is being contemplated. Cooperation in development is a much more likely avenue, compared with VAG and Mercedes, BMW is a smaller company and BEV development is going to be very cos...

Re: Wheel weights 18" vs. 20"

You are going to have to decide which you want, if you want the best economy and range the narrow tyres will give you that at the expense of handling and grip. If you envisage thrashing it around and to hell with economy fit the 22 inch, you can’t have both, most IPace buyers want best range and eco...

Re: I Pace Insurance - Ouch!!

If LV do in fact act for Jaguar insurance the system would know it had just quoted you direct, there would be a clue in the registration no.
LV probably have to give Jag a commission, so they would rather pocket it, £558 does sound a good deal.

Re: Why EV takeup will be slow

Agreed, take up will be slow for pure electric, it would be reasonable to expect half the new cars sold in 10 yrs time to be electric and most of the rest will be hybrid or PHEV. The cars we will have then will be much better developed and the charging network, widespread, standardized with 100kw or...
