    Friday 19th February –  Vehicles on the Scheme – 1612.  Change: 57 removed

    MINI -59

    All petrol

    10 Mini Convertible

    25 Mini 3 Door

    24 Mini 5 Door

    All removed from Scheme, new 2021 (facelift) Mini out now so should be added to the Scheme shortly, hopefully with the new Mini Electric.

     

    Volkswagen +2

    T-Roc 2.0 litre petrol 187bhp 4WD Automatic £999 AP in SEL trim £2199 in R-Line. Not a new car (the order number is the same as the old car) but a return of the old car, they must have found a few hiding in a compound. Good luck trying to order one!

    I think that the T-Rocs might be new orders, rather than in stock cars. As far as I can tell, VW group have had supply issues with the 2.0TSi engines for months and none has been available. I don’t know whether they have tweaked the engine or if it’s just been a delay unique to that engine, but they suddenly started appearing on the VW Configurator yesterday, including the Tiguan. I didn’t expect them to appear on Motability that quickly, but I hope the fact that the T-Roc has appeared but the Tiguan hasn’t isn’t a sign that the latter isn’t going to appear.

    If it was 27th March I think I might be having a closer look. That £999 ap is just sooo tempting.

    Should still be on then Richard,still inside Q1 until end March,all T-Roc’s seem to be on at a good price the 1.5 SEL DSG at £499.00 deposit must be a good price at the moment

    Think the mad roller skate will be back; think WMC is right about new facelift version. Wonder whether the Cooper S variants will still be there.

    For a split second, I thought the Audi A6 had been added, rather than Audi +6. We can but dream 😂

    Not tempted by the Q2 30 diesel Glos Guy! Thought that would have been right up your ‘premium brand’ street.

    😂 As it happens, I think that the Q2 is a nice looking car, nicer looking than the Q3 in fact, but I fear that both are too small for our needs. An A6 Avant on the other hand….. I’d prefer a 5 Series Touring, but beggars can’t be choosers 😂

    The claimed 60 mpg for that particular Q2 is impossible to achieve unless you set cruise control to less than 60 mph on a motorway.

    My son has one of these and he is an exceptionally careful driver yet the best he can achieve is around 42 mpg.

    Let’s hope that things continue to improve. Especially since the bhp limit seems to be on the change, at least for PHEVs: 3008 with 300bhp giving a 0-60 of 5.8 sec. Forgive me for being pessimistic but I wonder how long that will stay on scheme!

    At a list price of close on £45k it’s more expensive than a Tesla Model 3 at £42.5k!

    The difference of course is that Motability will be given a very large discount by Peugeot as a form of fossil subsidy.

    The 3008 PHEVs charge at 3.6kW maximum so don’t plug them into a rapid charger as your car may be damaged when you return. Stick with home charging & AC charge posts.

    Love everything about the 3008, from the outside, wasn’t convinced about the inside. A bit dull and plasticy, if that’s a word, didn’t like the seats much either but in saying that, if I was changing just now, I would certainly revisit it as I didn’t get to a chance to give it a test drive.

    @gothitjulie
      One can add a 7.4kW Monophase on board charger for £300. Would this enable faster charging?

    It’ll allow for 2.5 hour charging instead of 5 hours, so OK on a 7kW AC public charge post or lamppost. Compare this to a BEV charging at 100kW on a DC rapid (and some rapids with an AC outlet don’t let a DC charge at the same time, hence you’d be unpopular hogging a charger for 2.5 hours for 36 miles of range when a BEV would pull enough for 100 miles in 20 minutes & be long gone). Luckily the newer CCS ultra rapid chargers don’t have a type 2 socket, and other rapid chargers often have a minimum vend price (£1.80) and a 90 minute overstay policy (£10 per 90 minutes) (45 minutes in some places and £10 per hour) to stop PHEVs hogging the chargers.

    You’ll often see PHEVs hogging 7kW AC posts in car parks, not even plugged in, just using the space for parking & blocking everyone else, and they have usually been keyed a few times in busier car parks.

    Blimey, I thought you electric car people were all left leaning, aran knit wearing ecologists. (I exclude the Tesla crew obviously)

    PS. This is my attempt at humour.

    I’m not building my hopes up too much just because some PHEV’s with high stated bhp figures are joining the scheme, as the bhp figures in these cars seem to be exaggerated in the same way that their quoted mpg is. As far as I can tell, a 300bhp PHEV is only delivering 300bhp in very short bursts when the electric and petrol engines are both running at full pelt, and most of the time they will feel like a car with much lower bhp outputs. A conventionally fuelled car with 300bhp on the other hand, will allow you to utilise the full power output 100% of the time. Same way that they quote ludicrous figures like 160mpg economy and then you see a road test or hear feedback from users and it’s more like 50mpg.

    Oh come on Glos Guy crack a smile, 520Nm of torque is BMW M3 country. It may be only a part time 300hp monster with no towing capabilities and questionable seats (and a Peugeot badge) but this could be a door opener to a whole new world!
