Today, did my first test run in pure EV mode (ICE-kill). Temps were 75-85F, no AC, stereo blasting. I was on rural roads, estimated average speed was around 38mi. Probably less than 10mi at the maximum (52mph). One 10 min stop otherwise, continuous driving. Terrain mostly flat, slight occasional hills. I ended the test when I noted “blue bars” on the monitor, It has been my experience that this is the time to pull over and reset. Total mileage for a full charge was 48.7!
Otherwise the car has been operating flawlessly, my true mileage (measured at the gas tank) for the last 2000mi is 69.6 mpg….It should be noted that I am not a hyper-miler, that my usual commute involves some hill-climbing, and is mostly at 60mph.
