Hi, yeah i did the trip down Friday and drove back yesterday and the car did great. Managed 3.3miles/kw on the way down and 3.7 mi/kw on the way back. And that is with the cruise control at or a couple mph over 70. Think the main driver of diff in efficiency was a 10mph headwind on way down and the 10mph tailwind on way back so it was interesting to see just how much it effected the efficiency. Stopped off at stevenage on the way back for a fast charge. took me a couple mins to figure out how to get it going, tried using the electroverse app to start it but thankfully had an electroverse card too so just tapped that and then started. Topped up 34kw in 18 mins (£21), did pre heat the battery before getting there. So was charging at av 105-110kw/h. Overall trip cost me just over £26 in electricity so very happy.
Only slight negs were that the ACC liked picking up the speed limit signs off side roads of the a1 a couple times so started slowing down rapidly. The other was the tiredness warning beeping at me, but sure i’ll be able to turn that off somewhere.
The drowsiness thing can be turned off in the 'driver assist' menu - I have set the menu as a 'tile' on the main page - and have the menu as 'list' view - means its less clicks to turn it off if needed. .

If you werent aware, the main home page can be edited to have different 'widgets' at different sizes, most of which are interactive and can be scrolled on, or clicked on to open the full menu for that thing. Can have up to five (i think) of these pages.

I'm loving it so far. I was hoping the the power tailgate on the match edition might have snook onto mine but it wasnt on my life spec so I can't grumble, the heated seats are lovely and appreciate the heated steering wheel way more than i thought i would. Just generally a pleasure to be in.

Acceleration is more than sufficient, love how quiet it is and suspension is great. Been getting between 3.5 and 4 miles per KW between mine and the missus' short commutes which is good. Taking it on a trip from West Yorkshire down to Enfield in North London next week so looking forward to seeing what efficiency i get on the trip down and seeing how my first fast charging experience goes.

Only things I'm still getting used to is disconnecting the charger, I'm on a Zappi charger with octopus intelligent which works great, but if the car hasnt reached its charging target it doesnt unlock the charger as easy, had to either go into the car and reduce the target, or triple click unlock and wait a few seconds. Drive select is still taking me a while to get used to vs manual gearbox, and just parking a much bigger car than I'm used to is tricky. My spacial awareness seems a bit off!
Hi, have you done your London trip yet? How did you get on?
I am getting delivery of mine next week, with a London trip planned in two weeks times (coincidentally also from West Yorkshire!) Will be good to know how you get on.
I'm not new to EV's so have had experience with rapid (or not so rapid) chargers, plus the automatic is a breeze compared to manual.

Received mine yesterday, first impressions are good. Need to get to grips with all the menus and settings available! Bit of an upgrade from the MG! It's a big car both inside and out and build quality looks good.
