Nissan Carwings APP Stats: Jan 2016 #EV #electricCar Miles travelled 500, electricity cost estimated £15 – typical cost of electric car “fuel”

February 14th, 2016 § Comments Off on Nissan Carwings APP Stats: Jan 2016 #EV #electricCar Miles travelled 500, electricity cost estimated £15 – typical cost of electric car “fuel” § permalink

Something I discovered in the update carwings aka Nissan Connect app lately.

It’s been a while since I have used it, due to faulty/buggy previous edition and reliance on third party apps to kick off that remote climate control.

It appears things have really turned about, first day use here, so more to be told on reliability of such update app, Nissan, and I do say “Re-Launched”, – I have however enjoy looking over the travel metrics – something which previous version lacked. 

All these electric miles, kWh consumption and Eco-driving statistics was/is available online, via the web portal, but was not, however in the app form. Now that this has all been combined, it’s handy, helpful and downright encouraging.

Example of our January Nissan Leaf Travels. 500 miles covered, some 150 odd kWh electricity used at cost of some £15 odd pounds. All handy statistics supposed to help budget, plan and improve on Eco driving. Kudos To Nissan.

Estimated Cost of driving our “Linda” in January   
Our driving stats for that month January 2016, our driving economy, and consumption outlined.

 
All in all, I welcome this update.

Sign Petition: Electric charging point which is hard to find and can’t be signposted could be discussed in Parliament

December 8th, 2014 § Comments Off on Sign Petition: Electric charging point which is hard to find and can’t be signposted could be discussed in Parliament § permalink

AN ONLINE petition has been launched to force Parliament to discuss a new hard to find electric vehicle (EV) charging point – that few people know exists and which isn’t allowed to be sign-posted.

Motorists have been able to plug in to the energy saving initiative since the facility was installed in the Forest Row Community Centre car park in September.

But the firm behind the scheme has been informed that it is prohibited from erecting signs directing motorists to the charging point.

Amy Parcell, from WiredThing in Lower Road, explained: “The EV charging point was installed at Forest Row Parish Council in the community centre car park and is free for everyone to use. However, after some extensive research, we have discovered via the Department for Transport (DfT) that the Government has no plans to allow directional parking signage on existing road signs or anywhere on the public highway.”

The Sorry State of SourceLondon Charging Network but Uptime is reported to improve soon.

November 25th, 2014 § Comments Off on The Sorry State of SourceLondon Charging Network but Uptime is reported to improve soon. § permalink

SourceLondon has a network of some 1300+ chargers in London and it is supposedly growing, – all very welcomed facts. But there is an issue, a serious Stick-in-wheels of progress, and that is the network’s charging points uptime.

This latter has been plaguing EV Drivers in London for some time now.

With some 25+% of the charging infrastructure down, The Issue with the charging network such as SourceLondon, especially following the takeover by the French group Bollore, is that it is not entirely clear who is still supporting the infrastructure. Who do EV Drivers need to contact to get charging issues resolved, as often, despite best attempts of contact and reporting issues, the chargers are left in disrepair for months.

Not all is gloom, as there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Things are changing.

Evidently not fast enough for the average EV Drivers, but there is hope. There is now a whole new, suffice to say, well-designed website and even an iOS and android app to go along that, but the LIVE status for these charging points is not (yet) guaranteed.
