Hi. This is really helpful. I’m yet to do any serious mileage so keen to give this ago asap. I did 53 miles today with an avg consumption of 1.8, avg speed of 35mph, and the battery went from 66 to 25%. Trying to run the battery down so I can do a rapid charge and see what I get. I’ve been told that it’s healthier for us to charge to battery from low similar to a phone battery. CheersOne thought on this. Range only matters obviously when you need to do a long journey. What I notice is that the efficiency is very low on short cold trips. Sometimes down to 1.5 km per kWh. And the range estimates seem to adapt to that kind of use. But once you do a longer trip the efficiency increases a lot - trebling or more.
It's reasonably intuitive - the car has to use a lot of energy on the initial heat up and start (which is beautifully fast and comfortable by the way!). That means the energy per distance is very low on cold short, slow trips with a lot of stopping and starting e.g. shopping or school run. But that isn't a situation where range matters. Once you go further, it usually becomes much, much more energy efficient. I find around 4km per KWh with smooth driving.
