Not having mats is a bit poo !!

I find the AC in the ZE40 takes a while to get going, would have thought in the newer model if anything it should have been better !

No mats! That’s odd.

Not had time to test it, but hope to this evening. Coming from a ZE40, it’s markedly faster. Compared to an i3, it may feel slow.

Also feels more solid and better put together, although still has the same tinny door slam noise. Couldn’t they have filled the door cavities with batteries!! Suspension deals with speed humps better. A lot less side to side motion.

I’m not very tech savvy but could we keep copy and pasting this so we can all participate and build up some feedback for ONTO. If someone can do a better job, please set it up for us Lollards. Could we add the number of us that agree to each point? Come on, where are the five year olds when you need them?

Wondered the same thing. If I had noticed I might have been tempted. After all it was a swap. I had to give old Zoe new Zoe’s granny charger as I’d left mine at home, expecting the swap to take place there 5 hours later on. I did get permission though.

I just got this from ONTO:

Unfortunalty our PDI partners have identified that your vehicle is missing a Polar charging card, we are terribly sorry about this and are in the process of sending you one out to your home address.


are these three mats you’re talking about?


Oh so yours did have the mats included

Me too (missing Polar Card) but for me is a non issue as mostly use Charge Place Scotland locatios

Well done @ArtursEV. I wondered who would spot my deliberate mistake first!


Yes I do use Polar quite a lot but do have plenty of other options around me, including a GeniePoint literally down the road, which is quite cheap anyway !

If you’re stuck, ask ONTO to give you the number of your card so that you can start/stop a charge over the phone. I’d let you have mine but not sure if they prefer to keep Polar Subscriptions linked to the vehicle they have been allocated to.

Top Tip: Take a photo of your Polar Card. If you lose or forget it, you can use the card number to start/stop a charge over the phone.

I think Polar must know about it, and gussing On.To are a big client

The email said if you call Polar and say It is an On.To Car and give the details they will start it for you.


Yeah I’ve still got the photo of my current Polar card, guess I can just ring up Polar and use that to start a charge until the new card comes !!!


Yes to be fair it does say that, let’s just hope it’s not like a call asking ONTO to unlock the car, at least seventeen security questions and 10 mins later…

I did like the app but just having the physical key card is like 100000 times better than the app to unlock the car and on the ZE40 all you have to do is walk away with the key card in your pocket and it automatically locks, if I’m right with the new car tomorrow I’ll be able to be completely keyless as the key card can lock / unlock without having to be removed from my pocket :smiley:
