So I have a new ZOE and I have to say a few weeks in I’m really enjoying it. It’s a great drive and perfect as our city car, although this is my first EV so I don’t have a lot to compare it to.
I have a few miscellaneous questions I was hoping someone may be able to answer?
We charged during that really hot spell recently and it seems that whilst charging you can do very little inside the car. I wanted to open the windows, but couldn’t quite figure out how to! I did try pressing ‘Start’ and I eventually got them to open, but it appears somehow whilst doing this I managed to end my charging session! The User Guides don’t seem to cover this from what I can see, so if anyone provide or point me towards some info about all of this I’d be grateful.
2) The ONTO App
Ok, so not ZOE specific, but I get why we are encouraged to use the ONTO app regularly with regards to Total Miles left. That’s not really and issue for me as a) we don’t do anywhere near the mileage limit and b) there was only 75 miles on the clock when I got the car. My question is if I start to use the remote instead what real impact/implications will there be and if I do so and go back to using the App at a later date does the Miles Left catch up?
3) Z.E. Voice
I’m aware the ZOE emits a noise under a certain mph and that it can’t be turned off. I have no issues with that. However, there is a button in the cab linked to it, but I can’t seem to find out what it does / how it works. I may have seen somewhere that it can change the tone, but it’s not clear whether that is a quick press, a long press or whether in fact it does nothing at all - perhaps it is disabled. I guess I could find a quiet road somewhere and experiment, but as ever I like to see an explicit instruction somewhere and I can’t find one!
