The UK infrastructure is definitely a concern, albeit hopefully a temporary one that might be considerably improved in 2-3 years' time. For CCS rapid charging specifically, it's a mess right now with a combination of limited numbers of chargers, different and at least partially incompatible charge-point owners, what seems to be significant unreliability/unavailability and too many sites with just one or two stalls. It really needs government intervention to make things more reliable and more easily interoperable but that doesn't appear to be happening.
Electricity generation capacity is close to a non-issue AFAICS. All the studies that have been conducted seem to suggest that with smart charging there are no obstacles that cannot easily be planned for and resolved over the next 15-20 years when EV penetration will really ramp up.
It's interesting to read some understanding of the dilemma I'm facing myself in trying to decide whether to swap my Macan SD for an I-Pace. I remain really torn in trying to make a decision. There's no doubt that a Macan does spoil you in many ways and does indeed set the bar high, but all our circumstances and preferences are different of course. Personally, I'm wanting to change to another premium/performance smaller 4WD SUV in the next 6 months (or sooner) and it probably won't be to another Macan (SD no longer made and petrols' consumption is likely too high for me, much though I'd prefer to buy another Porsche).That aside I was hoping the car was going to work but it doesn’t for me and getting back into my Macan this morning I realised just how significantly better this car is in in terms of driving ergonomics.
My dilemma is: if not I-Pace then what else? Not too much else on the market that appeals. Might go with a 2019 Q3 45 TFSI as a stop-gap until the next RSQ3 appears. Or if a Tiguan R (not R-Line) were to appear then that could be another option. All that said, maybe I'll confirm an I-Pace order in the next week or two. First world problems of course!
