Transporting a hybrid (PHEV) is stealing! (Updated) Leaked



Update (03.11.2021): Miio contacted A leak to clarify the situation in which hybrid vehicles are in the National Charging Network.

“PHEV hybrid vehicles suffer because operators use charging stations per minute for 22 kW stations (as if they were charging at full power), and most vehicles only charge 7 kW.

We hope operators will make further tariff changes to allow for better priced plug-ins and electricity, which also charge at 7 kW. ”

However, Miio also mentions that the current tariff, which is indexed for the electricity market, has both positive and negative sides, but this is a transitional phase. This weekend we are selling electricity at € 0.08 / kWh and when the market stabilizes our prices will be very competitive. However, we intend to launch a new fixed tariff as soon as possible, and the market allows it

Original news: It is very likely that in the current fuel crisis, you are thinking about replacing your reliable car with an electric car on a day-to-day basis, be it a hybrid vehicle (MHEV / PHEV) or of course an all-electric vehicle. … (In truth, you are most likely considering a hybrid due to the still many infrastructural constraints in our country)

Understandably, there is a question about shipments away from home!

After all, while charging at home is still very beneficial for the vast majority of drivers, charging away from home is already a more complex and truly daunting topic that, unfortunately, few people know about.

So, today we will try to explain what is happening in the world of electric charging, namely in plug-in hybrids. Unfortunately, chargers common across the country are no longer popular due to the prohibitive prices charged by operators.

Fuel: Transporting a hybrid (PHEV) is stealing!

Hence, in the case of the PHEV (plug-in electric vehicle), which are currently the most requested hybrids on the market. This is due to the fact that they can offer a certain 100% electric autonomy (currently about 50 ~ 80 km), adding an internal combustion engine for the remainder of the trip (and in some models such as the Golf GTE in picture above, the ability to combine two motors for sport mode, full power and torque) … It is now strictly forbidden to take it out of the house. (Save some old messages, and therefore slower).

After all, since the current charging model at the vast majority of stations is pay per minute, adding of course activation fees, taxes on electricity costs and the cost of using the station itself … The cost of kW / h is simply scary, often it exceeds 1 euro.

carry a hybrid

To understand, this charge does not fill the car battery in the image above, the Golf GTE, which with a useful 7.1 kW battery offers more or less 45 km of 100% electrical autonomy.

Can you imagine that you have to pay 8 euros to travel something like 45 km? Even with current gasoline or diesel prices, it is best to go to the nearest gas station for gasoline.

This is because plug-in hybrids load slowly, typically from 3.7 kWh to 7.4 kWh. So like the vast majority of new posts, they start at 22 kW. The price is fixed according to the same rate, and therefore this type of charge in a hybrid car does not make sense.

To get an idea of ​​the current charging system (price), if you try to charge a car like the Golf GTE with a fast charger like the ones we can find at motorway service stations, the cost of charging that same 45 km of autonomy is can be up to 20 €.

The conclusion suggests itself … Charging hybrid vehicles is currently a mistake.

Besides, what do you think of all this? Do you have an electric car at home? Or are you thinking of buying one to avoid rising fuel prices? Share your opinion with us in the comments below.

The first Dacia hybrid. “The cheapest hybrid family on the market”



The first Dacia hybrid.  "The cheapest hybrid family on the market"

BUT Dacia revealed this Monday that the hybrid engine has been available since March on the Jogger, the Romanian brand’s model known to be available with a seven-seat variant.

The Jogger Hybrid 140, Dacia’s first hybrid, will hit dealerships in March, but customers can expect and order it as early as January.

The price has been revealed by Dacia and since it’s only available in the seven-seater SL Extreme, it starts at €28,800. The brand claims it is “the most affordable hybrid family car on the market.”

Available in six existing colors to celebrate the launch of this hybrid, there will be a slate gray version, as you can see in the images above.

Equipped with a 1.6 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 90 hp, the Jogger is also powered by two electric motors (a 50 hp engine and a high-voltage starter-generator). The total power is 140 horsepower. The electric transmission is automatic, four-speed, connected to an internal combustion engine, and two speeds are connected to an electric motor. This combined technology was possible, according to Dacia, only due to the lack of clutch.

Combined with the energy recovery levels of the 1.2kWh (230V) battery pack and the efficiency of the automatic transmission, regenerative braking delivers all-electric traction on 80% of urban journeys and saves up to 40% of fuel compared to a combustion engine vehicle.
