10,000 km with VW ID.4: “I tried the Kona and the Leaf, then…”
“A few years ago I wanted to switch to electric, to try this new experience and knew I might have infrastructure issues. I first tried one a few years ago, one Hyundai Kona. As you well know, the prices were exorbitant for my pockets, so I waited for it to go down a bit, but then The incentives have arrived. Last year, I found out, online, that you can take a 3-day test drive for Nissan Leaf: I did and from there I fell in love with electricity. In January of this year, a Volkswagen dealer made me in my country Try ID.3 for 4 days From there I decided this was my next car. Then I came out No ID.4 Taking advantage of the incentives as well as some discounts from my trusted agency, I bought ID.4 1St.“.
10 thousand kilometers with VW ID.4: “Free Recharge with Telepass”
“There is nothing to say about the car, its beauty is aesthetically pleasing and captivating, comfortable, silent like all electric cars, spacious. The interior finishes are good although I will improve on some details, but I am more than happy and won’t be back. you passed From a methane car to an electric car You have arrived at the right time due to the over-price of methane. to benefit from Upgrade functional Telepass I travel for free: I upload every 2/3 days in columns near my workplace. Then at home I have no problems, I already have 4 kw photovoltaic systemAnd. And soon I will do the increase with 110% bonus with accumulationAnd the column and the corridor to three stages, better than that… I do 80 km per day Between there and back to work, then a few outings with his son: I take him to the pool, tennis, music. A trip almost every Sunday with the family and you want them not to do thatOr those with a length of 100/150 km When all goes well, a few trips to Rome as the first stop on the motorway, and here in three months’ time I’ve covered nearly 10,000 kilometers“.
Bad experience with shipping at Anagni
“Now I will tell you about my first trip of 350 km from the province of Perugia to governorate Caserta. I want to give columns a title Enel X fast, (The only one located a few kilometers from the motorway exits). A bad experience. Will you tell yourself why? Oro I will explain the reason: Departure from the province of Perugia 14 on 10/31/2021 with 93% shippingI already planned the trip with all the poles at the motorway exit. I keep speed 125 km per hour, Knowing that with this average, I don’t reach my destination, but if I lower the speed, I get to my destination but almost back to zero. I decided to stop by exiting the ad call me, Where there is less than a kilometer Fast shaft 60 kW. I arrived around 4pm and as expected from the app, the app was free and working. This is where my adventure begins“.
“I was forced to travel an average of 100 to get there”
“Karta Enel X told me a minute later:Card is inactiveI try again, same answer. I try cards Nextcharge we chargeSame answer. I also try a few times with related apps, but didn’t do anything: it didn’t read cards and Apps also not connected. I thought it was a septal problem. I leave after about half an hour, take the highway and exit at the next exit Ferentino (France), Where there is another EnelX Fast column, but here too the same. And I didn’t understand why. I leave again and stop again at Frosinone-Ceprano: same column, same problem. After a few moments via the app. Next Change all columns It appears under maintenance Then I received confirmation from EnelX that the network is under maintenance. I panic a little, I have about 150 kilometers to go to the end, give the car 180 km of autonomy.. I decided to go to 100 km/h Maintaining this average, I get to my destination almost to zero“.
“Great pizza while shipping at the IP distributor”
“About 2 hours later I got a message from EnelX saying the network had been restored. I decided to stop at the exit Kianilo (Enelx’s quick post is already programmed.) Shipping in IP distributor, Free and functional, with autonomy remaining at 26%. I charge the car around 7pm and luckily there is a pizzeria nearby, so we take the opportunity to have dinner. In the chaos of columns we were finally rewarded with an excellent pizza, as I hadn’t eaten for a long time…we leave after about 50 minutes on our own All ‘85%, is down you have 130 pto the last kilometer. Return trip without any problem, decided to stop Orti (VT), where there are two columns: one Enel X from 60 kW that it Be the charge 75kW. I choose the second, everything goes according to plan, I stop at 30% autonomy and leave after about half an hour at 85%“.
10 thousand kilometers with Volkswagen ID.4: an exceptional car …
“How about my first flight? exceptional car In all points of view. The infrastructure is still underdeveloped, and now that electric cars have increased, It is necessary to increase the columns. Incentives are not enough to buy cars, but rather to intensify the electricity network. Enel should notify first if there is column obfuscation, not later“.
