New car day for me!! After ordering back in July.. love it so far, it's a P300 SE, however I just realised that it didn't come with a charging cable for a 13a plug.. only the type2 charger, is that normal?

Congratulations - really good looking car!

The PHEV comes with a type 2 to type 2 charging lead only. You can buy a type 2 to 13A plug cable as an extra. I did spot this when I ordered mine because whilst I am sat at work I use the 13A plug arrangement as we have no charging point. I always thought it was a bit odd not to provide the 13A plug option but then I did have 2 back-to-back Outlander PHEV's that did have the 13A plug cable and did not come with the Type 2 cable. I suppose it depends on your own personal set-up. Some might be put off by the long charging time using the 13A plug but as my journey to work is 10 miles then the charge time to full again is around 2-2.5hrs.....oh and it's free!

Enjoy your car!

Congrats, first "21" plate I have seen (y) ....red seems a popular colour at the moment

The 13amp plug type are really only for emergency use and most people get a charger installed, thats why I think manufacturers (not just RR) have started to provide the type 2 to type 2 by default.

Thanks for the reply, I just wanted to make sure they hadn’t forgot to give me it.. I hadn’t noticed when I ordered🤦🏻‍♂️
My home charger doesn’t arrive until tomorrow 😬👍🏻

yeah I’d noticed the number of red cars too recently, I placed my order a long time ago and ordered the non-leather cloud interior, which may make it a little bit odd but thankfully now it’s arrived I love it!

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I picked up my P300e today as well and am currently conducting my first charge. The screen in the car shows progressive charging (it's exciting for the first time!) but to my surprise I don't get a flashing green light at the charging point on the car at the same time. Is this right? Thanks in advance.

Mine initially flashed green, then when locked the light goes out. I haven't tried unlocking during a charge cycle yet to see what the status of the light would be.
