What's the maximum range for the EQV? 256miles so far! View attachment 887
so far, my longest has been 268 miles, all spring, summer and fall I have been doing 250-260.

now, mid winter in cold wet Denmark we’re closer to 200-210 miles, depending on conditions.

I happen to have an EQA as private, and the EQV as taxi … the EQV is much closer to WLTP target, and run in Echo+ and not using cruise control but using paddles extensively, I am doing well below WLTP as average

You are right, EQV is very close to WLPT. I have a leaf (2016 model) and to be safe whatever it says in miles I take it as kilometres (winter time is worse).
Paddles can be very useful but I feel that they can also be dangerous (the car can be rear ended as the break light won't turn on).

Your mileage figures seem amazing compared to mine! What miles per KWh figures are you achieving? I've done 1700 mainly rural miles in UK winter and I'm averaging 1.8 miles per KWh.
Same (1.8mpkw) after 3000 miles. Its getting better as the weather improves. The range above was the maximum, not the average. To be fair the EQV is much closer to WLTP (as HimlsIvan mentioned above) than other electric cars.

Uhhhhhhhh, let me find a mile converting calculater .

it is probably a bit hard to compare directly since I use mine as Taxi in Copenhagen, so somew it’s all accelerations after red lights next day it’s more racing the highways, and always with lots of breaks up to an hour where I either keep it running or use preclimatization to keep cabin and battery warm.

but from November 21 to now, I average 1.9 and from November 20 to September 21 I averaged 1,69 miles/KWH

they found a minor sealing error on my engine late October and decided, to be able to investigate, to give me an brand new engine …

I checked a ride, approx 110 miles with 90% highway averaging 69 miles per hours … I checked out at 1,51 miles/kWh … which is actually quite superb for that hog average speed … have to say though it was late summer and around 12 degrees centigrade

I I forgot to mention, I have done approx 37500 miles in 13 month

How did you realise that there was a problem with your engine?
A big red triangle in the dash board followed by “drive to nearest Mercedes repair shop … and car went into emergency gear, shot off all convenience and had max speed 25 mph :)

before that, nothing, except that it twice in 10 month requested 1/4 cup of coolant “with coolant low message” … Mercedes was nice by the way, all excuses, brand new engine and they financially subsidized me for lost income (at least a decent part of it).

one important note … NEVER go to get anything fixed with less than 35% lefton battery ..if it gets below 30% security protocol won’t let them reconnect battery and all hell breaks loose … they learned that the hard way :)
And because of emergency program I couldn’t recharge and also didn’t know.

:) you couldn't miss that! At least they were nice and fixed it for you. Thanks for the battery tip! My advice: NEVER buy a UK Mercedes on a Friday afternoon. My dealership locked us in the carpark the day I bought the car! It was a Friday afternoon and they forgot about us. We had to call Mercedes assistance to open the gates. The service in general was very poor (staff had no knowledge on evs, not keen to sell the car, the car was not fully charged on delivery, bare minimum on everything really). It sounds that you are getting a really good deal in Copenhagen!

Sorry to hear that … we have the opposite here … then again .. Beeing taxi owner I buy at least one new every other year .. and before I became independent, I worked for a big taxi company and typically bought 4-4 new Mercedes a couple of :)

service from Mercedes here is totally top, when I recently picked up my newest an EQA as my private car … fully charged everything shiny, they set aside one hour to show everything, especially to my wife, even helped register the charge card … and when we left they handed my whife a bottle of nice CAVA brut, a little bubbly always does the trick.

At least you got out before Monday morning :)

Sadly I think it really is a U.K. issue as my French dealer is absolutely top. I have bought 4 cars and when you collect the car is always in a specific care for delivery all covered then uncovered for you to be able to examine it under the showroom lights and there is a long handover going through all the paperwork and the car controls etc and strangely for the first 3 the no plates were fitted during the handover process. As they have to be pop riveted by law it is a less than enjoyable moment as the brand new car is subjected to holes being drilled, once while we were sat in it! I never had the same level of service when living in the U.K. and it extends to the parts and service team too. Sales teams members are very stable as well and I have dealt with the same chap now over 6 yrs.

I totally agree and its not only cars. I feel that was really a poor service. The staff were not familiar with EVs, I was told that they had only one version available, it was not charged on delivery, no "green plates" not even mats, nothing. When the guy eventually came back to open the gates (they locked us in) he didn't even speak to us (my family in the car).
Anyway I hope that they will fix the electrics because I feel that they are not sure what's going on.
