Hi... just driving approx 1500 miles in 5 months... Votaic Blue Corsa-e ...Recently Notified about Vauhall RE-CALL back into Dealership Garage needing Air-Bags possible problem Check. They did a FULL vehicle check at the same time.Hi, great site! I've got a corsa e (2 months old / 1k miles)
Hi Danny..thanks for your info/ experiance with your Corsa-e. I have seen details of how2 Nav update via USB stick. As yet I have not done this... I did not know that the infotainment could be updated... just hoping that Vauhall would do this as part of their RE-Calls or standard Service dates. I did , like many have issue with key-less or remote EV unlocking the drivers touch sensitive drivers door handle. ( i.e. Stroke finger/ or thumb ) down the door handle whilst having the R/C in my pocket. As, for the infotainment or System Software Updates to make User Interface/ Experience more enjoyable /better... I am looking forward to Vauxhall addressing this soon. Meanwhile, i am quite happy and ploddin` on learning and driving my Corsa-e. and can see how usefull this forum ( and other Forums on this website eeveeWorld can help via shared experiences... btw..my car shows SYS SETTINGS/ SYSTEM INFO as of today 20/1/21 ... System Version:: 42.01.37.32_NAC-r0 last Updated: 2019-09-17 and UPDATE(S) DUE ... Empty List... NOTE: I did NOT try Export Config to USB memory stick option. CheersHi. I’ve had my Voltaic blue Corsa-e since July last year. I’ve done about 3,700 miles so far. i love driving it. These days, or at least until the latest lock-down, I was mostly doing school runs and local driving around town, usually around 25-35 miles a day.
in the summer, around town I was getting around 4.0-5.0 miles/kWh which equates to a useful range of 188-235 miles. (battery useable capacity is 47kW). I did a couple of long journeys from Suffolk to Liverpool, 245 miles each way, fully loaded with 2 adults and 2 kids and a boot full of cases. I averaged 3.5 miles/kWh at 65mph which gave me a range of 165 miles so could easily do the trip with just one recharge stop each way.
In winter, on a not quite as long journey, I was still getting 3.5 miles/kWh which surprised me but I suppose that the battery warms up anyway which is why there’s so little difference on longer journeys with the range.
I also updated the nav database and also the infotainment firmware. These were done using a 32Gb USB stick. Some people were complaining that they couldn’t get the updates of the nav to work. I too had problems at first but I found out that the 64Gb USB stick was to much for the system to handle. It’s just a pity that you need to download the massive European map database which is over 19Gb in size. With my home connection only being around 25mbs, it would take almost an hour just to download it and then another 40 min to transfer it to the USB stick.
Anyway, welcome to the forum. I have loads of other info about the car and the PodPoint installation if anyone wants to hear about it. Please tell your contacts about this website.
Danny...found this...infotainment update for Corsa-E...but cannot see how this relates to electric Corsa-e https://shop.intellilinkmods.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&tag=firmware NOTE: Please DELETE my post if its NOT relevant to Corsa-e ( eletric )Looks like there's been another System update since I did mine. I'll have to try and find where I got the update from for the latest one. Mine is 42.03.31.32_NAC-r0 dated 29-07-2020. If I can find the link for the download, I'll post it here.
Dave, might well be up for a charger - down near Burgess Hill? I’m in the market for one. Cheers, ChrisHi everyone, I’ve just joined the forum.. Really informative website with some great guidance for EV newbies. My background is as a redundant Virgin pilot turned electrician. I now specialise in EV charger installations.
I will definitely be keeping a close eye on this forum.
50kWh Danny; did 170 miles yesterday and still had a bit of charge remaining so 200+ miles range in the summer seems pretty achievable.Welcome Toppo. Looking forward to hearing about your experience with an all-electric van. I am seeing many more of them on the road now. The local Amazon depot here in Ipswich uses a whole fleet of electric transits (I think). Not sure the of the range but it needs slightly different planning and driving style to make the best use of them I would think.
What's the size of the battery on your Renault Zoe van?
The East Coast is good for chargers, but crossing the Nullarbor to Perth is still hard work (no high power DC chargers). Very few EV purchase options in Oz, although this seems like the year the floodgates will open. More chargers appearing all the time and I'm sure as uptake increases the charging infrastructure will appear.It certainly is nice being able to keep topped up all the time. What’s the charging infrastructure like dunnunda? Could you drive, for example, from Sydney or Melbourne to Perth in an EV?
