Is it true that the maximum loading weight on the trunk is measly 60 kg? Read it in a car magazine but I can not find that info in the owners manual.
Yeah that is correct however the magazine stated that there was a label on the boot floor warning not to load more than 60 kg. Strange. Just have to test drive again I guess and check the boot floor.Hi. From the original press release from the UK press office, The HYBRID kerb weight is 1370kg (3014lbs) min to 1477kg (3250lbs) depending on model variant. Max kerb weight is given as 1870 kg (4114lbs) for the hybrid. This excludes any allowance for a driver. So, doing the maths:
4414lbs - 3014lbs = 1400lbs max for lowest spec model.
4414lbs - 3250lbs = 1164lbs max for highest spec model.
1870kg - 1370kg = 500kg payload etc
1870kg - 1477kg = 393kg payload etc
Now deduct the weight of yourself, the weight of anyone else you are carrying on that journey, and any "stuff" you have in the car, phones, chargers, hand bags, dogs, children etc etc. The number that you are left with is what you can carry. Whether you can carry it all in the trunk is unknown. However the battery in the hybrid (and the PHEV) is under the rear seat so don't carry too may big guys!
If it is the BEV that you are talking about the figures shown are 1420kg min 1475kg max kerb weights. 1880 max overall (gross) weight.
Low spec model is 460kg payload and 405kg high spec car. 1012lbs low spec and 891lbs high spec.
deduct the weight of people/stuff and you are left with what you can carry.
On the BEV the battery is part under the rear seat and part under the trunk (boot) floor.
Hope this helps, but is UK spec.
Picked up a consignment of books today . Loaded 11 boxes in the cargo area each weighing 20Kg ( about 45 pounds ) . No problems to report on the 45 mile drive home , other than my fuel efficiency taking a minor hit .
That hardboard must be stronger than it looks and feels
I'm afraid I didn't .....maybe next trip in a few weeks time . The boxes were 14 inch x 9 inch x 12 inch ( 36cm x 30 cm x 23 cm ) , stacked two deep and didn't obscure my rear vision at if that's what you need to knowNice, You have a picture from the cargo of the roof? :nerd:
