Why did you choose this car?
Good styling outside and inside. The car felt comfortable on the test drive and I had several Peugeots before which had no issues. Also, my local main dealer is very good.

Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car?

  • Comfortable
  • Quiet
  • Fun
  • Good ride comfort.

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car?

  • The App is a bit ‘flaky’: if you have to keep changing the departure time for delayed charging and want it ready just before departure you have to manually work out at what time to set the charge to start
  • Glovebox is small.

 

Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
It does long journeys well, better than I expected for a supermini.

 

What car are you interested in next and why?
The newer Peugeot 308 EV, especially if they have an estate. More load space and could then combine my work car with a family car reducing the number of cars I have.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
zappi – it works well and can use just the power from the solar panels to charge the car. Seems reliable.

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
I am on the older Economy 7 tariff which isn’t as cheap normally as the ‘smart meter’ tariff but it works well for me. I use Scottish Power as it is renewably generated.

What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Instavolt- usually reliable and at least in pairs. Basically, I will use whatever is most convenient on my route.

 

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
It’s specialist insurance as I’m a driving instructor but I insure through A Gallagher. My wife’s EV is insured with LV. Good prices and competitive things are included in the policy.
