Sad farewell to our Suzuki Across PHEV

One spell covering some six weeks and well over 1,000 miles saw an mpg return of 148.5! On a longer 250+ mile round trip with the petrol engine doing all the work, the Suzuki returned 44.8mpg which is nothing to be sniffed at. Overall, the return over the full 2,121 miles averaged out at 95.06mpg while the battery consumed an average of 2.8 miles per kWh

Long term test – Suzuki Across PHEV, going the extra miles!

Our first fill up was after 547 miles and the return was 71.9mpg, since then we have covered  further 1,200 miles before our second fill! A return of 148.5 miles to the gallon. Pretty impressive although most of those miles have been fairly short journeys and so the 50 mile electric range has been sufficient.

Long term test – Suzuki Across PHEV

The Across, however, gives almost 50 miles of range (47 indicated after a charge) and that’s pretty decent even for a rural location like mine. Most daily trips here easily eat up 30-40 miles, so a quick overnight on the home charger is a good ‘un for daily use. Theoretically I would probably only have to visit a petrol station once every 2-3 months.

Electric executive express – Audi Q8 e-tron review

The introduction of the new Audi Q8 e-tron last year builds on the success story of the flagship electric SUV and Sportback which now feature an optimized drivetrain, improved aerodynamics, higher charging performance, and battery capacity and an increased range of up to 330 miles (WLTP) in the SUV and up to 343 miles (WLTP) in the Sportback. Design changes, especially at the front of the vehicle, give the new flagship SUV a fresher appearance.

Suzuki Across PHEV – ticks many boxes

Never been a big fan of plug-in hybrids due to the fact that the range has never been that good and there’s generally too much input from the petrol engine. The Across, however, gives almost 50 miles of range (47 indicated after a charge) and that’s pretty decent even for a rural location like mine. Most daily trips easily eat up 30-40 miles, so a quick overnight on the home charger is a good ‘un for daily use.

Enjoy the silence – Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC AMG Line

It’s certainly not as revolutionary as some of its rivals but there is an overall feeling of refinement. Along with silent running, high-speed road, tyre and suspension noise have been very well suppressed while the ride is not too soft in so far as you get a good feel of the road. The car is on the heavy side, mind, so you can expect some rock and roll if you get too ambitious on the bends.
