Took delivery of car in November and I’ve just had OS 2.1.6 installed automatically this morning which is the minimum requirement for 3.0. So should be here soon. It will come just takes time.

Same here 2.1.6 last night updated (November delivery) happy now as at least I know it’s updating properly and can relax but there was some reports that 3.0 affected the battery range on p400e so skeptical about that.

Hi Bathonian
Not true, OS3.0 has no affect on battery range. However after install you will find that the car will run on the engine more for a bit longer than usual until it relearns your driving habits. Mine took a couple of days then was all good.

Totem, good to know, after a full charge did you start with 30-31 mile range ?

After 3.0 installed my range on start up dropped to only 24 or 25. It may be the weather but it does seem more drastic than that.i Itmay be that it’s learning but ut has been many weeks and my achieved Range is 24 - 25 generally.

I mentioned it may be version 3 as on another post someone with a P400e with 3 got a message there was an ‘update’ back to 2.1.6 !

Yes, full charge back to 30miles but if you are only charging say from 75% back to 100% you dont get a range indication of over 26miles. However i find the car will do 30 miles. I only get an indication of 30 miles plus if charging from a very low charge.

Totem - unfortunately that’s not the case on my car. I am generally charging from depleted and app / car saying 26 miles at start and then ‘journeys’ recoding about 23 or 24.

Me too, first time I’ve been asked to schedule it whilst I was driving, that interface works well.

My car downloaded OS 3.0 yesterday. First attempt at installation failed due to the hybrid battery being at 3% charge. Installation was successful after I had charged it. Turns out installation will only proceed if the battery is >25%.
All seems to be working well now with wireless Android Auto.
There was no change to the layout of the bottom screen as reported by other forum members.

So are they admitting this update affects battery life, what does short term mean?

I got 2.1.6 b today also. As far as I am aware from other forums, the only affect on EV use is that it has to re ‘learn’ your EV driving habits. After a while it returned to normal on our P300e Evoque after OS3
