Re: Lane Assist

Adaptive Cruise Control plus Lane Keeping equals Auto Cruise if you want it, but don’t rely on it totally there are many situations it cannot cope with.

Re: Octopus Energy - cheap overnight charging

Another vote for the EDF “Go Electric” Tarriff. We have PV and a Tesla Powerwall so we only imported less that 1,000KWHs PA from the grid before the EV arrived. This year has involved rather restricted driving and suspect our imports this year will be round 1,300 KWHs and maybe 1,800 to 2,000 once ...

Re: Octopus Energy - cheap overnight charging

For most EV owners the cheapest would be Octopus Agile where low rate is 7 pm onwards rate varies from day to day but charging an EV will average 6 or 7p a KWH. An IPace is going to take 12hours to fully charge so you do need the longest period, peak rate is 4pm to 7pm if your household can avoid t...

Re: Critical Battery Warning

If you are getting a replacement car free it’s not really a case for complaint but I can understand your frustration, so keep the lease company updated with progress by email. Long term if the IPace is not satisfactory it will get replaced

Re: Lane Assist

As standard you get lane change warning, if you don’t indicate it vibrates the steering wheel but does not attempt to steer. Drive assist pack adds lane keeping, the cameras under your wing mirrors track the white lines and keep you centered, it seems to work on mine on highways although I don’t use...

Re: 100kW charging: It’s a joke

Thanks for that explanation I was under the impression that the optimum battery temperate was 25-30C rather than 35+, so clearly chilling is going to be significant. I have noticed on a recent road trip on a cold day high power consumption on the first 12 mile leg as the battery warmed up, then afte...

Re: 100kW charging: It’s a joke

Question. Ambient temperature has been mentioned in connection with charging, surely it is battery temperature that regulates charging speed, so if you have been driving quickly the battery will be warm and charging should be quicker.
Does ambient temperature play any part in charging?.

Re: 3 phase on-board charger upgrade?

I was wondering where you charge a Porsche on 800V. My solution was to charge 2 400V battery sections in parallel, combining them for driving the car, probably impractical but the alternative is dual voltage chargers. That seems the wrong way round to me. The heaviest duty on the battery is rapid c...
