I have had the Q5 for 3 weeks and I have yet to use the combustion engine. On a full charge I am getting 32 miles but this can reduce slightly going uphill. With the AC on you lose about 3 miles of range. What the Q5 is is not a larger Q3. The Q5 is better built, uses better internal materials and the MMI is significantly better. I went for the 20" wheels with the 45 profile tyres. With the state of the UK roads, any lower profile potentially damages the wheels. I have no wireless charging pad but I don't care as it is slow and where the phone goes there is a USB-C. I have no side assist but then that's what wing mirrors are for. My first long journey will be at the end of this month when I am doing a return journey from Leeds to Norwich in Hybrid mode.

That is one of the reasons I got a hybrid. Analysing my journeys, 95%+ of them are less than 22 miles return. Now I only travel about 8000 miles per year. A couple of decades ago it was about 29000 per year. :rolleyes:

Thank you for the information, I will feedback early next month. As a matter of interest did you use the ACC? I am convinced that this should improve the economy. Also, how do you link the auto hybrid to the sat nav?

I ordered mine on 20th October 2021. I took ownership 2nd August 2022. Almost 10 months. A major factor affecting delivery is component shortages. I have a good dealer who regularly provided updates as the user tracking has been disabled.

Try and find out what the build status is which would give you a better idea of where it is. Please bear in mind that from the shipping dock it can take 6 to 8 weeks to get to you.

Oh.... Build status 10 means that they have allocated the parts but not started building it yet. When it gets to 20 it means that there is a confirmed build week. Once it gets to 38 it is on the shipping dock. These numbers are very granular so it goes directly from 10 to 20 to 38 etc. 10 is not so good, 20 is better and 38 is good. There is no defined time between the statuses.

Not exactly. To go from 10 to 38 can be as little as 2 weeks. All you can do is to request a status weekly.

I have just charged the almost empty battery with just 1 mile left. I have a Hypervolt 7kW charger. It took just under 2 hours to fully charge to 32 miles.

I went on a 23 mile round trip on EV only. The first time I did not use the ACC and I achieved 57.5kWh/100ml. The second time I used the ACC and I achieved 42.3kWh/100ml. I wonder if ACC has the same type of improvement for fossil fuelled cars?
