New EV announcements

I thought I would change the thread, instead of having multiple threads for each new EV announcement, have them under one thread.
The Honda E looks impressive, very old school but with a modern twist, and I actually like it.
No price as of yet, but range is claiming 125 miles +

I saw the review in a Dutch car magazine last month...I can't say I like the look of that at all. Reminds me of a Kia Soul or Suzuki Wagon R or something. Very boxy.

Liked it from the moment I saw it & have no doubt it will sell better than most of the others.

I really like the look of the Peugeot 208 E GT just over 200 mile range and they reckon it will come in around £20k.

We'll certainly be looking when the PCP on the Leaf is up next year.

If those figures are correct, that could be a game changer for me...my Leaf PCP ends in a years time and I believe that the Peugeot e208 is due April 2020.
Most of the all the new electric cars I’ve seen - New Leaf, Kia Niro, Hyundai Kona that would do over/around the 200 mile range are about £30000-£40000 and that is way out of my price range, even on a PCP

I've been offered a Zoe for £19,000 total amount on PCP. A good deal but I currently have no where to charge.
The Kona will not be available to next year now either.

Yeah, the Kona and the Niro is a year away now...the Zoe does what 150 miles in real life?

I now have a year to persuade her it looks better in blue.

I look forward to showing pictures of the red one.

Anyone e.g. @PRESSTOG know what happens if you change manufacturer and your home podpoint needs a new plug? I've no idea what the Peugeot uses but is it likely to be the same as Nissan's? and if not, can you easily change it?

Been told I can also have a test drive as soon as they have them in stock.
Also, interesting if true

Be interesting to see how Renault, and possibly VW react if it comes in at under £20k

It will be Type2 for Home Charging and CCS for Rapid charging as thats the standard adopted for europe now

Does your popoint have an attached lead with a type 1 connector on the end (Assuming its a 24 or 30kw leaf). In that case a decent leccy can swap it out for £100

If its a non tethered lead then the type 2 socket on the podpoint will work fine with the cable that comes with the new car

One thing you may want to consider is if the podpoint is a 16amp one, may be worth upgrading to a 32amp one to maximise charging speed.

Just my luck, we went for a tethered lead, but thanks for the info, I'll get it changed to Type 2 if we proceed:thumbsup: Good news is that we thought ahead and went for a 32A PodPoint.

We are the same have 2 Type 2 Tethered UNits, which really Irks friends with Leafs who come round thinking they will mooch some power while having a chat.. Sorry Mate wont fit ;-)

Ouch they are a bit more expensive than I thought about £140 for the lead then a leccy to fit it

Type 2 Tethered Cable

Remember if you have both cars at the same time you are entitled to a second OLEV grant, so depending on what deal Pug do nearer to the time may work out cheaper getting a second unit fitted (Did for us as we got a Chargemaster one thrown in free with the Zoe)

Thanks, I see you can get Type 1 to Type 2 adaptors for £132 so there are several options available. I might ask PodPoint how much to just change the plug.

If it was me I would be buying a plug off Ebay and doing it myself, but then again as a Kid I stuck a fork in a 240v socket and still have spiky hair 50 years later... And changing a ceiling light socket last week switched it off at the wall but had not figured on it being on a live loop. Eyes dint half tingle from that. So very probably not the best person to give electrical advice ;-0
