Hi, just saying hello for now.
I took delivery of my new Q8 Etron 50 Black Edition at the end of March.
This is my first EV having moved from a 2019 VW Touareg R Line.
Despite being a petrolhead, first impressions have been great. The move to an EV has been relatively painless. The car is loaded with tech, albeit feels heavy yet surprisingly agile on the road. I don’t miss my old V6 diesel which surprised me.
Honeymoon period has been short lived however with the car developing an intermittent fault where it either refuses to accept a charge or it fails early in the charging process. On each occasion the fault follows car despite using different charging points, regardless of speed, tethered or untethered. This also coincides with the ‘Charging System Fault’ being registered on the car.
So far the main dealer has concluded ‘no fault found’ as they were able to fully charge the vehicle whilst being assessed with nothing being revealed by their diagnostics either.
It’s back with me for the time being, albeit not able to use the car as intended (main family car) due to having been caught out with young family in the car when travelling back from longer journeys.
Shame, as beneath this it’s a great car that functions well. Looks great too, particularly with roof box.
