Re: Towing in hilly areas

Do you all think that I can reasonably drive this sort of route pulling this sort of weight with my Outlander? Yes, no problem as long as you use Charge mode the entire trip you will be fine. I've towed double that weight with the old 2L PHEV and it does struggle a bit, however half the weight with...

Re: Towing limit

I was hoping to get a large twin axle to site seasonally but its looking out of the question now due to the towing capacity. Has anyone pulled heavier than 1500kg? The biggest van I have seen behind a PHEV was a "Hobby La Vita Veneto 495 UL" towed by none other than the "famous" (on this forum) ANK...

Re: 12v battery death

I replace new battery also. same fault happens You don't have a dashcam or other accessory hardwired to the 12V ? If nothing changed, then there is definitely something draining the 12V when the car is parked. Check interior lights are switching off when the doors close, and if you have a voltmeter...

Upon delivery inspecting under the cab I noticed at the rear wheels, no cover between the wheels and the carpet material.
It would help to post a photo with an arrow or something indicating where you think the issue is, then another vehicle owner can compare your photo to their vehicle.

Where I park the car is usually 10-15m away from my house.

Any recommendations for that distance? I am happy to pay up to £400 if need be!
Have you checked that it doesn't work? I can reach my PHEV 15 metres away without any wifi booster.

Re: Towing in hilly areas

when watching the vehicle info screen sometimes the engine block and front wheels turn orange. What does this mean? Orange engine on the MMCS display means the engine is directly driving the front wheels (parallel hybrid mode). Always CHARGE mode while towing. Although it seems "proper" to do slow ...

Re: Full electric conversion

As you say “neither has pursued making a kit” so I’m guessing it’s pretty simple. Everthing is relative, however simple would not be how I describe the addition of the Leaf batteries - Read about it here - https://forums.aeva.asn.au/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=7191 $2,100 saved p.a., is a 4 year pay back ...

Re: If the propulsion battery stops forever

This is my main worry: can I still use the Outlander as an hybrid after the propulsion battery is finished forever ? If the battery is simply totally degraded, yes you might only get 1 EV mile, but everything is still fine as its just like a Prius. However if the battery develops a cell fault, then...

Re: B0 to B5

With full regen, just the act of releasing the accelerator starts braking a fraction of a second sooner. The overall reaction time is faster than waiting until you release the accelerator, move your foot to the brake pedal and then press it. This is a really interesting point and quite correct. How...
