Always one that has to rain on my parade. I'm stood at the office window waiting to sign autographs on outdated Evoque PHEV brochures to the crowds that will soon be massing.......surely?I had never heard of todaynewspost - they have 4 followers on Twitter so I guess they are no BBC/SKY
Ford Kuga currently in recall for the same thing: Ford Kuga PHEV Sales Stopped After Overheating Batteries Cause FiresOh well, BMW are issuing a global recall of c. 26,700 of their Hybrids built in 2020 due to a fire risk! It includes their entire Hybrid range including the Mini and the i8.
Perhaps they'll take off and you'll be able to claim you were an early part of their success!Always one that has to rain on my parade. I'm stood at the office window waiting to sign autographs on outdated Evoque PHEV brochures to the crowds that will soon be massing.......surely?
Maybe Covid really does impact Co2 and Battery Range? 😱Kuga PHEV 'fire risk' puts Ford on track to miss EU CO2 emissions targets
Ford is looking for a fellow car manufacturer willing to share excess CO2 emissions credits after stalled Ford Kuga SUV plug-in hybrid (PHEV) sales put it on course to breach stringent EU emissions targets.www.am-online.com
I sense a connection between the forthcoming CO2 fines and a raft of stories about plug-in cars (in general) that are being pushed onto the market before they are fully tested and ready. JLR was quoted as blaming Covid-19. Any fool can see that the virus effect is not technical, it's commercial. Companies could go under if they don't start selling more cars soon.
If it waddles like a duck and quacks like a duck.....
I believe it was only the S and R Dynamic S spec that went from 6% to 10% which as of writing is still showing as 6% on Comcar.I’m in the same boat, my car (HSE R DYNAMIC) has been on order since July and been told I won’t see it until November, also note if you ordered 20.5 model year late July/August then your car might be in a holding pool meaning they may have changed it to 21MY. I’m surprised that everyone is shocked by the change of emissions value. If you use the comcar website they car has been 10% from day one, so they knew something !!
BIK doesn’t bother me, but EV range does! I’ll sell you mine if you want 👍I think I might just be making a call to `JLR & seeing what they’ll give me against mine for one of these MY21 hybrids that everybody is cancelling 🤔 BIK doesn’t bother me 😁
