Not sure looking at the charging profile vs say an EV6 is going to make that any better as a comparison tbh.Why crazy. It’s a proper car that’s also EV.
Remember 150kW charging etc are all peak numbers. The charging profile is more interesting.
Some good points here. TBF I think it would be fine in Summer but Winter range worries me a bit too much. We do quite regular day trips from Guildford to say Cambridge and back, Dorset and back, Midlands and back. It would be nice to be able to do those without a pit stop if possible.If you do a lot of longer distance driving then it could be a problem. Expect 45 minutes from 10% - 80% and the charging speed will be quite poor above 80%. So in essence you have a 170 mile motorway range after the first leg. Though this is true of most EVs but most will give more miles per minute than the I-Pace due to the better efficiency. A Model Y for example will take about 27 - 30 minutes to add about 190 miles of range. An I-Pace will take about 45 minutes to add 150 miles. Both times are assuming decent weather and temperatures because many EVs suffer from coldgating. Add another 20 minutes, or even treble the total these times in cold wet winter weather. This means charging in colder weather can significantly impact charging times.
An extreme example is the Ioniq 5 or EV6 giving 18 minutes to charge from 10% - 80% in perfect conditions. In winter conditions I have seen some charging tests take well over an hour on the same cars.
Don't just look at the time it takes but the range it adds per minute and how the charging curve looks over the entire range and in different seasons.
If you do mostly normal commutes and drives, the I-Pace is a perfect car. I have an I-Pace on order but it fits my driving profile perfectly as I rarely drive more than 200 miles.
EV6 is the next best alternative but the EV6 and Ioniq 5 boots are just that bit smaller which is putting me off. iX3 might tick all the boxes (150kW charging and enough space for a family trip) but not sure of the looks.
Reality is probably will hold onto the diesel (a 67 plate but which I only bought at the start of the year lol) for the rarer long journeys for a couple of years and try and get around as much as we can in the e208. But I'd love to go all electric and the growing charger networks are giving me confidence that it'll be a non-issue within about 12 months.
