Hello everyone! Is there any other A250e owner here? The only disappointment I had was that it wasn’t equipped with the DC quick charger socket, which would allow to charge it in 30mins, whereas on the manual/websites they show it as available. Have yours got the full DC socket?

thanks!

Hi, ours got delivered today. Beautiful machine in M grey! Once I go through the cable, I will let you know. Quick question, off topic, does yours make an external beeping noise when you are reversing(like a lorry but softer)?

Been taking it for a run today, drained the batter (lol) - it is super nippy and the acceleration is awesome!
On charging sockets, how many were you given? I got two, 3 pin wall plug and a Type 2 by looks of it.
Also, under the driving modes, Eco mode is greyed out for me. Is that the case for you? Know why?

Thanks Stef. Had mine delivered on Friday and that was confusing me as well. It doesn’t say anywhere that UK version doesn’t support DC charging ☹

Hi
It looks like the UK version only supports AC charging up to 7.5kw. I noticed yesterday the A Class brochure online has been re written and now mentions it.

The DC charging thing is quite annoying, though. As on all the brochures/websites I looked at, DC was mentioned. Or did I make that up?

Agree. I was sold on the idea that recharge could be 25 mins. I also remember something on TV explaining rapid charging on all Hybrid and EV’s

What do you guys do for cable storage? We didn't get any storage/bag with the car, so just bought bags to hook on to either side of the boot hooks (rather than a crate).
