After a bit of confusion (long story), I'm picking up my iPace this evening. I currently don't have an EVSE installed at home yet and was going to see how it goes with the normal home socket. Does anyone have any experience so far using this and is it viable long term? My commute is pretty short, total daily normal driving is around 60km, so may cover most of my needs if I charge every night.
I would say it is possible in these conditions . With a normal home socket your charge rate is about 10km per hour
Other option is to fast-charge once a week up to 80% or so. Buy a good (car?) magazine, a caffee and enjoy the great sound system while charging.
Fortunately you must drive a little to the charger ;)
Crazily, Luxembourg have recently installed 800 chargers in the country which is a huge amount for such a small country :D . Unfortunately, they're all AC chargers, so will take 10 hours or so to get it at 7.4kW :( . There is a park and ride close to the office where they've recently installed 108 22kW AC chargers in the last 2 months - shame they didn't do their homework and install a few CCS stations at the same time.

For £149 inc. Installation after the OLEV grant I'd definitely go for 7kW wall box. I've used a normal home socket when staying overnight with a relative and it makes short notice longer trips a faff. I went for: https://evchargers.co.uk. Good quality and reliable.

Cost of a home charging kit with installation here in Luxembourg is close to €2000, so will see how it goes before committing.

You can get a decent charger for about €800. Installation cost will depend from how far you need to connect to your wallbox, €2000 might be a bit overpriced unless the charger itself cost +€1500?
