End of the 1st Month

After a month have I kept the Ioniq or swapped it???

 

So my first month of being an EV driver is finally over, and boy has the past month flown by..... It doesn't seem that long that the Ioniq was being delivered and I became an EV driver... 

 

The Car aka Evee aka Hyundai Ioniq

 

So the scores on the doors from month one:

 

758 miles covered

4.9miles/KwH

35hrs in the car driving

 

 

I don't think that is bad, for the first month, which means I have an extra 215miles to play with this month with OntO:

 

 

The Efficiency of the car and the regen still makes me smile and according to the App, i have regen'd more that I have used.. Which is good to say Sheffield has some big hills :-)  

 

I really can not fault the Ioniq so far, and it does seem to be very under estimated EV, that is very efficient and a nice car to drive, apart from have to turn Auto Hold On every bleedin time you start the car, as well as turn off the annoying for none motorway driving lane assist... please car manufacturers let me set this to be off unless I want it turned on, this isn't a Hyundai thing, but also an issue in a Skoda Scala I have driven and others. 

 

 

Charging Infrastructure

 

I am very impressed with InstaVolts at both Manvers (Costa/KFC) and Fox Valley, and also at Starbucks, Beighton, they just work every time, and without hassle although I did come across one City Taxi in Sheffield not charging but using one of the bays to go grab a Greggs, not on.... especially when there are plenty of spaces to park. 

Meadowhall in Sheffield needs a special shout out as they have approx 50 7KW chargers all free and are literally plugin, press a button and leave to go shop/eat/ cinema... exactly how destination chargers should be.

I am lucky that my OntO subscription includes charging at Shell and Partners chargers, BP (No)Pulse and InstaVolt,  

 

 

I cant complain about the OntO service, it just works as it should, you get a reminder 11 days before your renewal date to esign and that its and then 7 days before your renewal, then the try pre authorise the next months payment and thats it and at 1pm it all switches over.. 

I have build up some OntO reward points which are just a side thing. 

The one thing that has made the journey easy is the community at https://community.on.to as I have said in other articles,  is full of knowledgeable people and a great community....



So is Evee Staying,... 


The answer is yes and hell yes :-)
