It’s not going to be to everyone’s taste but we have now had our new car for just over a week and are really please with it.

The official line is that the range is 265 miles and the salesman has told us to expect that to be 220 if we don’t ‘drive like a nun’.  At the moment we have actually been getting a better range than expect at 277 miles, but I’m sure that will drop as we start to use the heating in the winter moments. I am averaging 3.7 mph Wh. It comes with two leads, a three pin which plugs into any house plug and a standard charge lead for my home PodPoint. On my home PodPoint charger point it can charge from 10% battery to 100% in 8 hours. On a three pin plug it takes considerably longer.  The charge from empty to full costs about £8. 

Most supermarkets offer you free charges which aren’t quick but if I’m shopping for an hour I can get about 45 miles of charge in which for free, i’m not complaining. We plugged into a rapid charge in Cobham services yesturday just to see what 20 minutes of charge would give us in range and we got 100 miles. These points are obviously charged at a rate higher than a home charge, but still nothing like fuel costs. The charge points are something to get your head round but once you’ve worked out the app you need for the charger you’re fine,  some are tap and go so dead easy to use.

Its a nice looking car, slightly larger than the GLA that we PXd it for. It handles well and has all the whistles and bells I need and enjoy including voice controls and cameras. Many will panic at the range, but honestly, how often do you drive out further than 100 miles? Realistically for us, not often and for those drives if we don’t want to factor in stopping to recharge, then we go in something else. 

I know many of you will hate it but we are loving it and as my daily drive, it’s perfect. 

Ill add some pictures in a bit.

I personally think this is a stock photo brought out every so often to fool us into thinking the Chilli Red really does exist. Apparently it's more common to see a snow leopard wandering in the hills that it is to see the Chili Red in real life, let alone on the road :whistle:

Quite like the GLA that this is based on the interior is a very nice place to be. Have spent a fair bit of time driving a B Class for the grandkids and it actually a very good all round car. 
Not sure I could live with the 99 mph limit though!

did you consider the Nissan Ariya?

We considered a few but not the nissan to be honest   Loved the GLA and when we realised this was similar but slightly bigger our minds were made up.
