    Just handed one of these back after a 3 year lease (because we needed more space in the back and the boot for two growing youngsters).
    Enjoyed having it and got down to the south of France and back twice in it on holiday- not a massive range but charges quickly so longer trips definitely doable!

      “Quickly” it’s not even close to 200 kW 🤣

      @TrueDesire존You have no idea about REAL charging speed of most EVs. Most cars – including many Tesla’s – will have REAL charge at less than 150 kW, dropping down to 100 kW or even less after 30-40% SoC.
      And… most “fast chargers” CAN’T deliver 200 kW.

      @user-nu1vn3yy9s  I’ve been driving EVs till 2019 till april this year… Stellantis group IS too slow! Not to mention we now have several 150-350 kW chargers in Sweden in some select places, mostly Circle K and Ionity. We are also setting up/preparing for trucks requiring megawatts. Tesla even opened up some of theirs.
      Hyundai and Kia are on the right track but still too slow imo. Xpeng can reach 480 kW peak, Nio can swap batteries.
      We need solid state tech allowing a flaw 300 kW minimum to speed things up.

      it’s not just the size that matters – it’s how you use that charge rate @TrueDesire존

    My friend owns a 2022 Vauxhall Mokka… nearly £40k in 2022 and last week he was offered just £17,000 in part exchange for a BMW i4.

      Mad to buy a small EV privately new – same as buying any expensive car new, they all depreciate heavily. Either lease it or buy second hand.

    Look at Stellantis cars new 2024 models…. they are asking £35k to £45k yet they will discount the hell out of them when they are 6 months old…. Then in two to three years they will be 50% down!! Personally I would either lease new OR buy second hand as BEVs are not holding their value. Plenty of quality second hands coming to market.

      How do you explain it? I think it’s mostly because of fast progress coming with new models, and not technical issues or battery capacity degraded.

      It’s important to buy cars when interest rates and prices are low. My financial advisor also gave me the same advice. When rates and prices are low, it can save you money on financing and make the overall cost more affordable.

      Please how can I reach out to your advisor, if you don’t mind me asking?

      My Financial adviser is
      “Samuel Peter Descovich” he’s highly qualified and experienced in the financial market. He has extensive knowledge of portfolio diversity and is considered an expert in the field. I recommend researching his credentials further. He has many years of experience and is a valuable resource for anyone looking to navigate the financial market

      He appears to be well-educated and well-read. I ran a Google search on his name and came across his website and messaged him directly; thank you for sharing.

    £220 per tyre? They saw you coming.

      I was quoted £197 for one Michelin tyre for a petrol 208 last week. But you don’t go to main dealers for tyres

    I was instantly put off the car when you mentioned the price of tyres. Mention of the insurance group would also be handy when doing these second hand car reviews. Thanks.

    Another STELLANTIS video ? C’mon this is getting silly. Are you on their payroll or something ?

    Sweetheart, the UPgraded MarkII 2024 Peu 2008 is – rangewise/specwise/exteriorwise – a mighty fine improvement over the one you’ve tested. Can’t wait to see you drive that one too.

    I think Stellantis have done a fairly good job in recent years. The new price is atill too high and leasing costs are way toouch for a low mileage private buyer. Used pricea definitely on the verge of tempting but in order for tgem to be a no compromise option in my use case Id need 250 miles real world winter range. That means I can go somewhere 100 miles away without faffing around charging (not all places I visit have charging facilities)

      250 miles real world winter range is more or less DOUBLE what this car achieves with a healthy battery!

      @James I used to have a Zoe ZE40. 140 miles was the winter range with that. I didn’t drive it at all fast though. I rarely charged away from home but long trips took some planning. Home charging is super convenient most of the time it has to be said.

      @Robert Smith as far as I know, Zoe’s have a better real world range than the 2008 (and Renault are more honest about it)

    Myself I’d be pretty put out if my battery turned out to be 70% effective and so just ineligible for replacement. Especially considering that this Stellantis drivetrain is well known for getting nowhere near its Wltp range (lots of comments on this for the 208 and Mokka). Shouldn’t this channel offer more advice on how to assess secondhand battery health? Is looking at the range readout sufficient? Perhaps the channel has advice elsewhere, in which case why not link to it? That’s what is putting secondhand buyers off, if you hadn’t realised

    Ugly looking thing . As a private purchase new EVs can lose a packet it seems. Way too early to risk you money and suffer the recent charging point punch ups .

    You have to wonder what will happen to these 2021-2 BEVs in 10 years’ time or so. Their owners, if any, will be struggling around on 80-90 miles’ range and with the constant threat of having to replace the battery. It’s quite different from the old ICE cars on the road today, which can usually be repaired incrementally – think how many battered old 206s you see driving around. With a traction battery failure, a relatively poor motorist will be …stuffed. So old BEVs will be scapped early (also if their battery is crash-damaged). Just how good will this earlier scrappage be for the environment?
