was a bit squeaky bum but @BMWi #i3 didn’t let me down. I made it to the @POLARnetwork point @HolidayInn #Birmingham with no battery % and no miles. Thank you @POLARnetwork for being dependable I was pretty desperate after three failed @ElecHighway charges. #AvoidElectricHighway
@ElecHighway tweet recently was BMW was working with them and charger manufacturer(DBT?) to rectify solution. Best to avoid until solution found for BMW/CCS chargers. polar/instavolt /@pod_Point use different charger manufacturer?
It’s not just @BMWi if effects, it’s nearly all #CCS enabled EVs. They also announced that their chargers software was the problem some weeks ago and it’s still not fixed. #CCS is fast becoming the charging standard in the #UK and it need sorting!
Ecotricity seem to have lost interest in E/H just use it for advertising not investing or maintaining their network? The trouble is the Government doesn’t care so they get away with it!
They took all the government grants, charge ripoff prices and do no maintenance. I don't trust Vince one bit,
Exactly why I bought a hybrid a year ago and not an all electric car. Not just me that struggles to get a charge on the electric highway
Maybe time @OLEVgovuk sorted this, at least allow one other charger from a different network at each motorway services? Maybe if a charger is not working for more than 48hrs (including no comms)
