If that happened to my 7.5 month old car, I would reject it as not fit for purpose and take MG to court if they didn't refund. I can't see how you'd lose a case like that. If common sense rules, that is.
Someone in a supermarket selling Bulb told me that they supplied 100% renewable electricity whereas Octopus is 70%.
I don't know about the truth of this statement, though.
If using green electricity is important to you, then that's something else to consider when choosing a supplier.
That's extremely unlikely as Type 2 is becoming the standard.
But even if that happened, it would be a case of changing the cable from the charging unit. Not a huge deal.
Look at this video at 38 seconds in
Look how easy it is to unplug the charger and put it back on the holster. Using your own cable, you would have to wind it up and put it back in its bag in the back of your car. That's a pain. And then you have to get it out of the bag again when you want...
Personally I highly recommend that you get a tethered home charger so you can just grab that and plug in when you want to charge it. Getting your type 2 cable out every time would end up being be a real PITA.
Wow, that’s cheap of MG. having said that, in over two years of ownership, I’ve used my type two cable maybe half a dozen times. When I have used it, it’s been essential, though.
Here is an example where I needed it on a long journey
It absolutely should come with a type 2 charger so you can plug it in to the 7kw chargers you find in car parks around the country.
In fact I'd be amazed if it didn't. It almost certainly comes with a 3kw granny charger, too.
Both are essential.
