New C-HR Owner

Hello

Got my new C-HR 1.8 Excel in black yesterday, delivered with 7 miles on the clock.
So far very pleased with it :D

So far very impressed with the car.
Did a 23.6 mile run on main A roads near Lancaster and got 71.1 MPG, 70% EV.
Quite please with that 😀

Wow..that’s fab...71.1 mpg? How did you manage it?
I have only managed 51 so far...

I notice the batteries of my new car aren’t fully charged?
Do we have to charge fully by running the engine idle?

No definitely not. It tries to maintain the charge for you between about one third full and two thirds so it has some power when needed and some capacity to absorb power when you use the brakes or go down a hill.
It is best not to worry about the battery level as it does it all for you.
All the best

I have no idea how I got that MPG.
Just drove back as normal and was please with the results.

One thing I have noticed if I get up to speed and then easy off slightly I keep the same speed but often the car changes to EV mode.

There is your answer. That little trick of easing off a fraction often trips the EV, as I found out myself. These figures achieved in a 1.8 Excel, also black! Enjoy your lovely car!!
