😅 Why do they bother, I was patient though and stayed all the way to 13.41 (EDIT: I did actually got back to the video out of curiosity and it did get worse and worse, I can honestly say don’t waist your time).
Their car weawing back and forth, mine don’t.. (I do think the car balances on the very edge when it comes to weight distribution, makes choice of tires and tire pressure to play a part. For me this contributes to the agile and comfortable ride my car gives). Their car had a massive consumption, mine just don’t.. The car has “no specific mode to set regenerative breaking other than the paddles”.. What? .. thats how you enter the specific mode for regenerative braking, with the paddles.
Then you can argue about the amount of breaking power, mode resets when enabling cruise control or turning the car off, would have been nice if it stayed as chosen, not a big thing though.
Things they say, like the range is totally fine, then cracking down heavily on the range. Talking about the car rolling and weaving as a result of bad design, knowing the tires was damaged. They did go to the tire shop but did they change tires? and why was the tires badly damaged?
Things like cables and hoses are oddly routed under the hood.. what would that matter? The design of the battery level indicator annoyes them.. 🧐
They could have spent their time wiser then trying to review cars but sure.. they got me watch which is probably the sole purpose of the video.
Everyone may have their opinion, personally I think the review was one of the worst ☺
it’s squirrely at 50mph on dual carriageways
The weight is too far back so the front feels light
The boot is too small and the shape of the rear door makes it worse
The battery is about two thirds of the capacity it should be
The charging is too slow (seriously, 3 phase AC at 22kW could fully charge in 90 minutes, DC 150kW in 12 minutes negating the small battery)
ACC leaves WAY too big a gap in front
There’s no eco driving mode to dampen the accelerator response at higher speeds
0-10mph is too slow
Brakes can be spongy, hence radar braking assistance kicking in at low speed
I agree the pipes under the bonnet are a mess - there’s a huge space under there but the pipes block it all off
Aircon is noisy
That stupid brake check when the power is off but the doors are unlocked and you are sitting there waiting for the kids to come out of school then are unable to start the car properly as the brake can’t be depressed
on the plus side it’s only costing me £240 a month all-in and I get to give it back in 2024
Oh and the other major niggle, the charging port is on the wrong side for the UK. You either have to park facing oncoming traffic (bad!) or have the connector hanging out into oncoming traffic (also bad!) for on-street charging
