FROM CANTERBURY TO BORDEAUX

Post by malcolm » Fri Sep 21, 2018 5:28 pm

Hello all
I have been quietly sitting in the wings for the past few months , studying and learning from your EV knowledges , many thanks
I shall be getting my first EV on the 10th October hopefully , and after my test drive , I am so excited , it really is a beautiful bit of kit !
A yulong white HSE , which , judging by the ' what colour ' topic , will be very rare , but I like it , so there !
Possibly aimed more at our French contingent , but towards the end of October I will be taking the I-Pace to Bordeaux , quite an EV baptism
I have found a 100 KWH charger at Tours , where we will do an overnighter on the way down
Do anymore exist in the vicinity of my route or shall I just plan around 50 KWH s , of which there seems to be quite a few ?

Thanks in advance , Malcolm

Hello Malcolm,
My SE Yulong White was built today and I will get it in 3/4weeks.
Regarding charging we have only a couple of Ionity 100 KW stations (Tours & Angers) on A10 & A11 going south.
However you will find also each 60 to 80km along motorways SODETREL ( Sodetrel mobile app for iOS ) 50KW stations.
Envoy the great road trip.

Hello Malcolm

Can’t help with charging advice for France, but congratulations on your choice of Yulong White... the best I-Pace colour by far! Like emgf’s, mine too was built today!

Mike

Thanks for the info ,
I was aware of the sodetrel chargers , but didn't realise that they were so well spread on the autoroutes ,
It should be a piece of cake !
I already have a Newmotion card , would you advise a specific one for sodetrel , or is it just as easy to set up a one off each time I charge ?
So glad there are a few other people with good taste out there , sounds like we will all be getting our cars at a similar time good luck , and I hope you enjoy the Jag ! I'm sure I will!
Would the sodetrel network also cover the route to the alps , and is anyone aware of any chargers in the resorts ?

A New Motion badge will do with the motorways Sodetrel chargers including in the Alps.

However in the resorts you have generally either 22KW AC or 43KW AC , or 50KW DC ( with CHAdeMO plugs) and then you will need a Sodetrel badge and will get only 7KW per hour ( I-Pace limitation ) for a cost of about 8,5€.

Thank you so much
I am feeling much more confident about the journey already
Will give a pretty good idea of achievable range too
Happy I-Pacing
