BEV is still in it's infancy. It's definitely the future, automakers are starting to take notice of Tesla. Right now, besides Tesla, there's no infrastructure to support long distance driving. For road-trips, I prefer my Model X to my Sport. The throttle-delay is even more pronounced once you drive EVs. I love my Sport for it's luxury and build quality. Tesla cannot touch JLR in this dept, even the I-Pace is better inside than the Tesla. I will be 1st in line to buy the the 1st Sport or FFRR EV. The incentives are exactly that, to help those that are going to pay extra to offset the R&D cost of first adaptors. But as mainstream manufacturers move toward EV, cost will come down, then will no longer need incentives to win people over. It's crazy that my X cost more than my L494, the X drives and handles better, the L494 is better looking and luxurious. I can't wait for the LandRover EV products, not a fan of the Jaguar I-Pace so far. If the EV version looks and feels like any RangeRover product, and does not add an additional $30k on top of the non EV models, JLR will eat everybody's cake, and hopefully they'll have the weak efficiency issues work out by then (here's looking at you I-Pace).

Having had the P400e for six months now, it is just an amazing vehicle (apart from usual JLR glitches). CHarging infrastructure where I live is quite ok. I can sually charge but the infrastructure needs improving as more people will have ev or phev and so the limited numbers of charging bays will rapidly become insufficient. It is getting to be the case already. Also one issue is that non ev cars are regularly in ev charging spaces here in Belgium. The p400e drives so smoothly, yet has greta performance when yo uneed it. Next car I think I will buy a full fat RR PHEV or a sport p400e again. I will also definitely buy a pure EV RR product if one come sout for city driving like a pure ev Evoque or defender if one comes out.
I am a new RR Hybrid owner. 2 times I charged the car and confused a bit with the results:
In the first charge, It took 4.5 hours for 100% charge and showed me 31 miles with 100% and unfortunately I did only 7.2 miles with 100% charge.
Today I charged the car with an other charge point , It took again 4.5 hours to charge completely and it showed 25 miles max with 100% charge.
Did anyone test the charge more than twice and if pos could you share the results ( at least the averages) ? I feel, I need to adjust my expectation from EV and Hybrid, or I make a mistake while charging or using the car or my car has a problem with EV and/or Hybrid.
It depends on teh weather, my charge level at 100 percent varies from 15km to 50 km. When it is about 20 degrees C I get 50km, when it is below zero I get very little range. It is because teh battery i sused for heating, defrosting etc. rather than just pure range.
I also get yellow check engine warning lights repeatedly (every 1000km that the dealer does not seem to be able to solve. The charge time is variable and depends on many many factors such as the temperature, teh typ eof charger, the local electricity grid use etc.
