So you spotted the Autocar article ... this is what I'm waiting for and the story has been slowly gaining substance.With the possibility of AMG Versions!
And sure enough it was a weekend test drive as their Volvo is now back on their drive and the EQC gone.My neighbours just turned up yesterday with an EQC 400 4-matic. It's on a 70 plate so I'll be interested to see if they have bought it or it's a weekend test drive.
The way to think about it is how quickly it can charge for the amount of time the range gives you. 70% of the battery (the 10-80% charge time quoted) can be charged in 30mins on a 100kw charger and gives around 175 miles of range. This is around 3hours of driving on UK motorways. I think stopping for 30 mins every 3 hours is fine.The problem with the EQA is its quite low mileage on a charge which in reality in winter will not be much more than 200 miles. Generally this is okay for most in daily use but is a problem for those occasions where we need to do a longer trip and will need to spend time twiddling our thumbs at a charging point during the journey.
It's not yet a fully rounded proposition both for the vehicle and from the charging infrastructure point of view.
