Mini E

Its been a while my last post as I ve been busy due to a new arrival in the household. The hasn t had much usage but since returning to work the is starting to rack up.

I have had the to get out and try out some public charging previously I posted that the all the pioneers were signed up to t much use for me as the charging points reasonably local. I did happen to pop by a car in Oxford where there was a point and plugged in. It was fairly forward to use, though as you can see the picture, I couldnt get the car parked on the side so a bit of a stretch for the cable.

I also took the car up to london and in a shopping centre (Westfield in Bush) where they aroudn 30 charging points of wall plugs. It was a bit of a gamble as dont stop non EVs parking in bays but I arrived early and after finding them I in. On coming back to the car park all the were filled though and no EVs from the Mini to be seen.

I ve tried out the charging points, the team have collected the and are in the process of signing up with a scheme so we shall see how that

Its also got much colder in the UK, not getting about single and I ve noticed a drop in the range of the car I have to charge at work I think 80 miles from a is reasonable now, where as a 100 mile was achievable relatively

Also noticed some goings on with the ABS and the regen conflicting against each in the wet weather under heavy but it might just be me.

1 Month miles


Been a while since I last as Ive been away,.  The trial is the 1 month stage and I ve covered 1500 miles in the Mini E, im quite pleased with. We had a weekend away,  which was a 180 drive from home out of the Mini E s league unfortunately, so we had to the normal car. This how far away EVs are from use as a sole

There really isn t a viable and alternative to a conventional car for longer

Also been up to London a of times and have been to take the Mini (its 110 miles round trip), im I will one day, but as I have previously the lack of proper public charging points  are not subscription schemes really taking it into london and further afield.

Apart from the puncture, its fairly uneventful over the week or so. I have undertaken longer journeys in similar to my commute but not had the luxury of charging at I revert back to econo to make sure I can achieve the and then usually put my foot towards the end when im confident ive got juice to get home. I do notice on B roads if you drive fast and have to regen hard as a it doesn t seem to make too difference to the battery consumption.

On journeys the car goes in to economy when you get below a certain % to you get the max range. I think its when the car is 10% battery it restricts hard You don t notice it much if you are  normally though.

I think that a useful on the car would be to have different that are selectable, so if you know you are on a journey you can set the car to restrict the acceleration, top etc so you don t have to concentrate all the time to sure you are not too enthusiastic, Economy normal etc.

The temperature has dropped a bit this week, down to about 6/7 c over and not above 12 during the day we had previously in the teens. I have noticed a change in the range but nothing maybe 5% less in the battery on home from work. We are set for a night on Saturday so will the car out and see how it charges over night.
