          Welldone tvs. Markymate your car does look great.

          Cheers, Micky.  I don’t what Autoglym put in the stuff, but the dust and grime seems to just bounce of it, as 5 days later the car is still gleaming like I’d just finished applying it!!!

                Had an update from my dealer today to say there’s a 5-6 week delay on my delivery for my Sportage, I asked where in the process it is but haven’t received a reply.

                Still…. looking forward to when it’s finally here!

                      26/03/2024 and Kidderminster (Worcestershire) estimated delivery was for 30/06/2024.

                      But to be honest I was expecting it to be around end of July beginning August looking at the wibblers list on the kia forum, around 5 months is the average wait time (from a quick skim of the document).

                       

                      Hopefully it means it’s built and on its way!

                            Took my MY25 Tucson PHEV on a 400+ mile round trip over weekend and averaged 50.4mpg in HEV mode which I’m happy with.

                            Main reason I went for the PHEV rather than HEV, is so I can take dd to school and run local in electric mode.

                                Hello Kezo,

                                Excuse me for maybe posting this on wrong thread. My first post here on this site.

                                Cancelled my Sportage GTS PHEV after one accessory ordered wasn’t compatible (illuminated side sills – only compatible with HEV & ICE, NOT PHEV). Didn’t bother me too much after I saw the new Tuscon MY25 was released. Been following your posts on that thread. Very helpful – thanks.

                                You said after 400+ miles you got 50.4 mpg in HEV mode.

                                Does that mean you never plugged in to charge the battery ? Just drove with ICE only ?

                                Thanks

                                  Hi, I did not plug in during the trip and let the car drive in hybrid mode as a self charging hybrid HEV would drive so mixture of electric only – ICE – then back to electric and so on, if that makes sense.

                                  If I had started the journey in EV mode, I would have been able to drive on electric utill the battery reached 10-15% and then the car would have automatically switched to hybrid HEV mode as described above. I’m not going to guess and give a false answer how many miles it would have travelled but, my plan is to try this in 3 weeks when I make the journey again, to see which is the most economical way of doing this journey. However, I can confirm the car will easily travel above 70mph on battery power alone.

                                  In sport mode it goes like 💩 of a shoval, yet still manages to drive as a self charging hybrid (HEV), although not as much as in eco mode.

                                  As said previous, I got the PHEV to save money taking daughter to a from school and driving locally, which is where I think a PHEV shines. Prior to taking delivery I took a guess, I would need to charge it 2.5 times a week, which turned out to bang on really. For that I am getting to take my daughter to and from school (80 miles p/week) plus shopping etc say an extra 10 miles or so. I currently pay 9p kwh off peak, so the 90 odd miles are costing £2.88 or £2.40 if I join Octopus Intelligent. Am I happy with that (range) Yes and no! I would have liked a bit more range between charges but, I have to take into consideration, I live ontop of a mountain and generally hilly area, so logically it’s going to use more of the battery when going up a mountain than going down or living in an area which is more flat, so taking this into consideration I’m happy, especially given my previous nx4 Tucson used 3 gallons of petrol for the same journey.

                                  I have yet to play in depth with the regen settings, when I feel brave enough to use anything other than level one. The car has 3 regen setting and a one pedal driving setting. I imagine using a setting higher than one will massively help to kee the battery topped up especially going down the mountain lol. I am use to ICE, so it will take time to get use to these.

                                  This is relevant to the Sportage PHEV, apart from the my25 Tucson having a larger kW motor, which I guess the Sportage will get next year.

                                  I will copy this and add some pic’s to the facelifted Tucson thread as an initial review.

                                      The wheels you are thinking of have been powder coated by the owner on the owners forum which is what I was going to have done. Was quoted £280 + VAT, I didn’t think that was to bad.  The only Youtube videos I’ve seen with the black HEV wheels was the grey 30th edition which is not available in the UK.
