I've only had my EQA250 for a bit over a week, so I'm still learning - and still on my initial charge.

From my brief read of other similar threads on this forum, I think your question will have various answers according to the type of motoring (urban, country, mainly flat, hilly, etc.) and climatic conditions. In Europe, I suspect cold weather will have a big influence, whereas here in Australia I think the other weather extreme will require quite a bit of energy.

Can anyone tell me what is the REAL range for the EQA ?
I can see many different opinions so wonder if anyone can advise what they get from their cars
Short answer to your question is, no. No one can tell what the ’real’ range of any EV is, like EQA-S.oz says any figures are only relevant to the individual situation. E.g. I am In Fife Scotland (lots of hills, and I do a lot of short trips) and during the 6 months I’ve had my EQA I’ve had a best reading for a trip of 4.2 miles/ kWh (total range would be about 280 miles 100% to 0% battery) in warm (for spring here) weather. Maximum figure so far covering 3.5 miles mostly downhill is 6 miles/ kWh. A worst of 2 miles/kWh (hauling a trailer weighing 1500kg on a winter day) giving a total of about 130 miles range. Average over the 6 months is 3.3 miles/kWh according to the car.

i pick up mine this week! Very excited…. A very long wait and minor spec adjustment.

It will be interesting to figure out the Australian drive experience.

a few road trips coming up
1 the great ocean road ( Melbourne to Port Campbell)
2 Melbourne to Sydney

im based in Melbourne.

I had a 237 km trip yesterday. At the start, SOC 91%, range indicated 434 km. End of trip SOC 32%, range left: 147 km.
Average consumption: 15.5 kwh/100 km. Average speed:54 km/h.
Trip consisted of about 180km on highway - 90-110 km/hr and the rest in city/urban setting. Air temperature - 23-27 degC, Driver only - no passenger.
It looks like if one is starting from 100% SOC, a 400 km max range is possible.

Interesting insight on range, pkaus.

A contributor to this Forum who, I gather, is awaiting delivery of his EQA has asked me about a "high pitched sound when accelerating at high speeds". I'm not sure what speeds he's referring to, but as the only freeway-type motoring I've done in an EQA was on an evaluation demo, my experience is very limited. I'm fairly sensitive to 'annoying' noises but I didn't notice anything of concern accelerating up a reasonable slope at about 100-110kph. I suspect road surface variations and wind could mask such noises to some extent, but it's an interesting aspect of the EQA which I hope doesn't prove disappointing as I do more 'higher speed' motoring.

Any comments from other EQA owners - or is this better initiated as a separate thread?

Another long drive today - Gold Coast-Sunshine Coast and back. 80% + on highway. Started at 99% charge with indication of potential range of 464 km. Ended with 363 kms with 70km range left and SOC at 15%. Driver + passenger. 400km range achievable. It appears that ancillary consumption is about 8km/hr of drive (40km over the 5 hour drive).
