Just on a short notice commute from Newcastle to head office in Milton Keynes, 240 miles each way!

I use mainly gridserve chargers on the long trips as they're reliable, easy to use and reasonably cheap (by paying motorway charging standards.

Charging seems very slow on them compared to my old ID3. I used to get a solid 70kW average charging speed on these 120kW, i'm just about scraping 50kW.

The Peugeot e2008 on the other charger seems to be getting about the same charging rate.

I wonder if the chargers have been slowed down,or 3.0 software is making the charging rate slower (my old ID3 was on 2.3).

I thought the charging curve was improved with 3.0, so it shouldn't be the software.. quite possibly the chargers.

The one at Wetherby was marginally faster,the main difference being ambient temp 13.5C this morning, 23C this teatime.

Afternoon drive home was 4.0 miles per kWh (23C), drive there was 3.4 miles per kWh (13C). I averaged a few mph sliwer on the way home due to a bit of traffic.
