MINI joins the EV Experience Centre

The EV Experience Centre (EVEC) in Milton Keynes has welcomed MINI as a new OEM partner. This partnership comes as the EVEC enters its third year in operation, and includes 2 brand new MINI Countryman plug in hybrids for the Centre's test drive fleet.

"I am really excited for what our new MINI partnership will do for the EV Experience Centre and for the future adoption of electric vehicles." Ted Foster, EVEC manager.

Both MINI Countryman are now available for free short-term test drives and long-term test drives from £50.

I love a good Toby Carvery. I find the food improves the longer it's left under a hot lamp

Well I guess it is easy for people to start charging and then at the 90 minut mark go and move their car... although I suspect they don't need the full 90 minutes and this is where I think a 50kW charger at such a place is not a good idea... It should have been multiple bays each providing 20kW of charging... immediately it means they could have put twice the number of charging bays for the same power supply.

Instead of 2x 50kW DC chargers (as an example), put in 5x 20kW DC chargers and then give the users 2 hours time limit. Its a win-win for everyone in comparison to 2x 50kW and 90 minute charging time. More money for the supplier, more EV charging, more EV users visiting, etc. etc.

That might work for some but I don't think the I Pace can charge at 20kW

https://www.zap-map.com/charge-points/j ... ing-guide/

"The Jaguar I-Pace is fitted with a 7 kW on-board charger for Type 2 AC charging, in addition to rapid 100 kW DC capability. This means that even when connected to a fast charger with a rated output above 7 kW, the I-Pace will only be able to charge at 7 kW."

Charging rate can be any rate required... currently it is targeted at 50kW as a minimum, but only because the locations they are placed requires faster charging, service station, etc.

However, in a Toby Carvery... you don't need 50, 100, 150kW charging because you're there eating lunch... you just need something better than AC charging which sometimes doesn't charge you the same amount you loose to get to the location i the first place.

People will disagree with me, but I think pretty soon this will be the way forward... DC charging at rates that make it worth going to these locations, shopping centres, food locations, cinemas and that encourage stays of 1.5-2 hours so that you spend some money on the service but that you then move on and another person comes by and does the same.

Sorry, I don’t disagree with you.

However, when there are 30,000,000 cars on UK roads (10,000,000 with only street parking), and they are all EVs, it’s going to need a lot of chargers :-)
