Very happy with it too. No problems at all... and contrary to 4ndy I do install updates which solved a few small annoying bugs in the beginning with Pivi. One thing however I think needs improvement is the setup of charging and preconditioning periods.

I’ve had to have some parts changed on the ICE that were causing the engine check light to trigger, but apart from that it is brilliant.
I update the software as soon as new releases appear and these fix the bugs with Pivi. Looking forward to the latest version.
I drive it as a hybrid and let it decide when to us the ICE or the EV or both, that way it keeps the ICE lubricated.

Good post @4ndy. I was was going to ask this question myself, but didn’t want to come across as negative as my experience hasn’t been great as you know. I’m genuinely interested to hear about fault free experiences . From November last year , to April, I did 4000 miles without putting any further petrol in from the day it was delivered. For my 30ish miles a day commute , it performed exactly as it was sold to me - EV all the way. From the first fault developing in April , sadly the experience has gone down hill. I now have to fill it up with petrol every month to compensate for the ICE kicking in randomly on almost every journey. ( sometimes for the full journey despite 100% charge)

When the EV behaves as it should I absolutely love it.

First annual service tomorrow followed by a list of faults to be rectified.🤞

Thanks for all that Rob....lots of useful information there. I think you're right about the early models giving more problems and also the Friday cars. I also never touch the EV button and completely drain the batteries before recharging....makes a big difference to the range.
Funnily mine was one of the very first off the production line. And you’re right , it hasn’t taken any of the software updates the dealer did to fix faults with it refusing to charge , and a stability control malfunction, well at all.

My main frustration now it’s colder outside is it no longer heats the cabin on EV . As soon as I touch the heater controls ICE kicks in, which it never used to. Also with the car still plugged , last winter I used to precondition the cabin on the battery to heat up the cabin each morning . It was nice and toasty and I was using my household electricity to help do so. This winter I get in it now and it’s blowing cold air much to my frustration. I don’t want it to sit idling on my drive burning petrol ,which is the alternative . Some people have mentioned a known EV heater fault ? Forums are a good opportunity for people like me to have a good moan - but they are also a great place for knowledge sharing and avoiding dealer fob offs .

This is exactly my experience. car doesn’t seem to be able to heat the cabin using EV. It use to warm up when preconditioning but now it blows cold air . It would be good to know whether this is a fault/part malfunction or whether just a software glitch. Does anyone have the answer to that?

on the plus side I’m doing the half day land rover experience in Scotland soon. Has anyone done one recently? How do the instructors coach you during COVID regs?

I have a lot to learn I feel I need to swat up on the EV and ICE, when it should start shouldn't start etc 😂

You are so right with that Angel. The P300e is a very complicated and slightly quirky car....and you really need to know exacrly how to operate and drive it to get the best performance, range, reliability and economy from it. Anyone who is contemplating buying a new P300e needs to FULLY read and understand the relevant sections in the online Land Rover iGuide first. I actually think Land Rover should also provide a full days instruction and demonstration, specifically on the hybrid vehicles, fo all new owners before they collect their new car. 👍
If the P300e is such a complicated car to operate correctly, surely this will put off many buyers who are considering this model, as I’m sure the majority of drivers just want their car to work correctly, without having to have a ‘degree’ in how it should work??!! 🤔

Sounds like it must have been a software update that has caused this failure to provide cabin heating while using EV. As you know mine hasn't been updated and it still manages to power everything I need via EV, without needing to fire up the petrol engine. The only slight downside to this is that the EV range is slightly reduced when I switch lots of stuff on....but it's not a massive reduction, just a few miles less.

It all depends on your driving style . You very quickly learn how to drive it in order to get the best EV range out of it. My wife is a more aggressive driver than me , and subsequently finds the car running more on the ICE than I do. I think that’s what @4ndy means.

I'm really nervous to admit it, but my car has been trouble free since collecting it 1st September & I love everything about it. Only done 270 miles, so I guess early days, I do accept the updates. Unlike the Disco Sport I had for 6 years, the first 2/3 years were a nightmare, it was so embarrassing people keep seeing me in a loan car. HOWEVER yesterday every time I started it the main screen didn't tilt up, had to do it manually every time, hopefully today it will tilt to set position.

I had a day when my screen wouldn't tilt no matter what I did .. I was going to book it in but the next it just worked and was fine ever since just had a funny 5 mins so maybe yours is the same :)

Thanks Angel, that's what I'm hoping 🤞 for this afternoon, minor niggle compared to what some are experiencing.
