    I live in Cincinnati and I haven't seen the ev range show above 41 so far. I don't think it has fallen below zero here all year. Certainly not since we have had the car.

    53 miles (for us metric challenged Americans) is great but pix shows 11C. Isn’t that 52F??
    So was it below zero and were there any downhills involved?

    Best I’ve gotten is 62.7 miles, and that’s with no climate control, heat, lights, nor any other non-motive battery drain. So this is my high water mark and will drop like a rock when I start using the a/c.

    Ahhh, that’s helping you a lot. That’s great kilometerage for that temp. With my car outside, I can’t get that high at 35F/2C.

    I wish AC and heat uses gas. So we can go more on the battery. Wishful thinking I guess!

    If AC and heat uses gas, then you can't really do any pre-conditioning

    If that were the case, I would be running the engine about 8 months a year. Might as well just drive a hybrid.
  11. The 85.2 km he shows is 52.9 miles. The 0 degrees he describes is 32 F.

    The question is, do you actually get the 67 miles (107km) in actually driving? Are you using AC when getting that EV range?

    67 miles seems to be on the high side. I believe it is just an estimate based on your eco driving skills.

    When I used the sport mode, my EV range at 100% battery dropped to 39miles. It is now back at 45 miles after an eco drive.

    Ok I hope this explanation helps. Trip 1: Home - Work. Trip 2: Work - Home: I Live on Hills area. Start with 47 EV miles on OD reading(purposely didn’t fully charged the car because I don’t need to, 3-4 bars til it is full charge) Trip 1: Going to work will be down hills 2 miles (40-45 mph driving), 1 mile normal street(40-45 mph driving. EV now reads at 50 miles on OD, Yes that’s after 3 actual miles drove and I gained 3 additional miles), Hwy 40 miles @ 40-68mph (flow of traffic in SoCal Carpool). Exit hwy: street 1.5 mile to work(Parked: 6+ EV miles on OD reading). Morning driving, no lights, no ac, no heat, Apply play Breaking Bad on Netflix(long drive, I need some entertainment lol). All Windows up. Weather was great.
    So, 47 EV OD reading - 44.5 Actual + 6+ EV left OD reading. Charged = 63.5 @ 66*F(pix).
    I’m assuming if I continue to drive like trip 1, that’s what I will get.

    Trip 2: Work - Home. Start 63.5 EV miles on OD reading(Fully charged). Street: 1.5 mile, Hwy: 40 miles(60-65 mph driving), exit hwy: 1 actual miles street(-2 EV miles), 2 actual miles up hills(just this alone -7 EV miles lol). Parked: 9 EV miles on OD reading. So, 44.5 actual miles + 9 EV miles left on OD reading = 53.5 “EV” miles vs. starts @ 63.5 “EV”miles Yup lost about 10 EV miles. However when I fully charged at home reading is 56.3 EV miles on OD. Again, I’m assuming if I continue to drive like trip 2, that’s what I will get. The math yield don’t add up: 53.5 “EV” miles, but after fully charged it yield 56.3 EV miles on OD reading. 1/3 of the way home fan was on(cool enough and not humid either). All lights are on, Apple play Breaking Bad on Netflix, LKAS on(night driving). LKAS on and works 90-95% on hwy, LOVE IT! I hope you guys get all that.

    The answer is, No. I'm not getting actual EV miles from going home, because I have to climb a 2 miles hills. However, I am getting actual EV miles going to work with 2 miles down hills.

    Bottom line, I am getting at least 53-56 EV miles from the EPA 47 EV miles. That’s 15%-20% more. Just wish I can buy the ALL ELECTRIC CLARITY. I won’t need to charge at home. Free Charge at work all they WAY! Free is always good.;)
