First Impressions of C40 RWD Single Motor

Collected my new to me ( 7 months old 467 mls) C30 plus yesterday from TMS Hinckley, who were excellent throughout the whole process. As mentioned in previous posts, first EV so little apprehensive, but after 2 days of ownership and whilst early days, I had no need to be. Unbelievably smooth drive a...

Re: What car are you changing to?

Agree with Chris, My last 8 vehicles have all been SUV’s, so would find it very difficult to have anything else, particularly as the old joints ain’t what they use to be.

Re: AAOS 3.1.9

Update failed last night, with all issues reluctant to try again, but I guess it’s necessary.

Thanks Gavin. All it actually took is for me to unlock the car, and the car came back online on the app.

Re: AAOS 3.1.9

Okay, done the update which appeared to have gone ok, except when I go into the Volvo app, image of the car is ‘greyed out’ and it states above said image ‘ car is offline’. Any ideas how I get it back online? Thanks

I assume I activate manual update, leave the car and lock it, and all will be rosy in the garden tomorrow. I also note on EV you need at least 40% charge on battery, similar to...

Re: 12 months in my 2023 FWD C40 Plus

Pick up ‘new to me’ C40 single rwd plus tomorrow. Slightly apprehensive being my first EV, but looking forward to getting it. Home charger fitted today, just about to switch energy tariff to Octopus, so pretty much set to go. I know there are a few ‘anti’ EV on here, but think the car looks great, a...

Re: AAOS 3.1.9

I get your frustrations Gedger. JFDIT, your right about cruise control, is it not really for use on Motorways, dual carriageways and the likes? Maybe I’m using it incorrectly.
