Why did you choose this car?
Good enough range, looks great, drives great and practical enough for me for a decent price.

 

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

  • Looks great
  • Great to drive
  • Reasonably priced.

 

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

  • Could always use more range, obviously
  • Wish it was completely one pedal driving without creep
  • Mobile app/car connectivity is rubbish.

 

Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?
I once experienced a slight glitch in the car computer where it rebooted whilst driving. Didn’t affect the control of the car and the system came back up again fine and has never done it since.

 

What are the standout tech features of the car?

  • Lane keep assist + adaptive cruise control is excellent, makes long journeys much less arduous
  • Auto-dimming headlights are surprisingly awesome and the headlights are very strong too
  • Android Auto is brilliant
  • Having the car lock itself when you walk away and unlock when you walk back is very handy.

 

Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this car.
It drives itself on the motorway.

 

Rate your EV out of 5.

 

What car are you interested in next and why?
Everything else that is better is far more expensive.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
3 pin granny charger – because I’m in rented accommodation. It does the job.

 

Rate your home charging unit out of 5.
N/A

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
SSE – if you have a 7kW wall charger, you probably want a supplier with an EV tariff.

 

Rate your electricity supplier out of 5.

 

What public charging networks would you recommend to others and why?
I always found Polar (now bp pulse) to be good, although charger issues seem to have increased. Pod Point and Instavolt work well. Not fussy to be honest as long as they’ll take contactless and don’t cost the earth.
