MG ZS EV

Anyone on here got an MG ZS EV. We've ordered one for my wife and paid a deposit. Been getting some fairly mixed reviews on the facebook page and I'm considering binning the order, which will be a pain as the SFT loan has come through now. Some of the issues reported are: Slow charging rates Vehicle...

CCS Reliability

OK, had the Kona for about a year now so I feel suitably qualified to say that CHADEMO is without doubt a more reliable charging system. I would estimate my experiance of failures with Chademo during my four years with the Leaf to be about 15-20% So far I would say my average failure rate on CCS app...

Re: V2G

Forgive me If I misunderstand how this works, and I'm not judging but....

Does this mean that you are able to obtain a free charge from public chargers and then sell that charge back to the grid at home? :?:

Re: Dismay over lack of direction!

I agree. Whilst I've always known charging for charging was coming I always thought it would be gradual and uniform across the country as uptake improved and that the installed chargers would be maintained and/or replaced as the network grew. I was disappointed to read that Dundee are introducing su...

Re: Public Charging Problems Log

I tried ecotricity chargers at Scotch Corner and they didn't work. I have heard they have been rolling out an update and some are working now, but I will stick with the Lidl ones when I head south. They were great for us back in Feb.

Re: Aberdeen(Westhill) to Great Yarmouth(Gorleston)

I wouldn't have the resolve to undertake that journey in either my old leaf of a 30kWh one. Hat off to you.
Yes Gorleston to Knaresborough was the longest leg 207 miles with 9 miles left on the GOM.

Re: Aberdeen(Westhill) to Great Yarmouth(Gorleston)

Almost forgot, the weather was bloody horrendous with a strong headwind to Penrith and 2 degree temps. Not to mention the snow, sleet and driving rain all the way to Glasgow. Lets just say, my determination and nerves arent strong enough to ever try that in my old Leaf.

Aberdeen(Westhill) to Great Yarmouth(Gorleston)

So, just returned from a trip to Goreston, just outside Great Yarmouth and whilst the car performed well, I have to say the trip was a little hairy. Not sure why the electric Highway chargers don't like the Hyundai Kona but they just refuse to connect or charge. Trip went Westhill (home 100%)- Abing...

Re: Energy Saving Trust Grants

They were advised two weeks before the car arrived that it was arriving and still hadn't paid the money into my account. As you know, Click to buy want paid three days before delivery, so I was stuck. I contacted Bank of Scotland who advised paying my savings into my credit card in advance to give m...
