I have been able to make a couple of journeys during late morning & early afternoon recently and noticed that I can comfortably get 4.8+ miles/kWh, on one trip yesterday where the first 3 miles were slow I was seeing an average of up to 6.3 miles/kWh, ending up with 4.8 miles/kWh over a 25.4 mile trip with approx half of that at 65-70mph on a dual carriageway?
Therefore as I usually see around 1 mile per percent of charge (i.e. 100 miles range @ 100 SoC) with an average efficiency around 3.4m/kWh, then surely if I'm easily getting 4.8+m/kWh then my range at 100 SoC will be 140+ miles.
I think the big difference was that we had quite a quick jump from fairly low temps <5 up to >15.
When temp is <5 I barely get 1% per mile.
I have noticed that range has improved particularly if temp above 5 and again even more so above 15 degrees. However nothing close to 140 mile range. Probably 120.
However it's also about driving style/speed/roundabouts too. If I go much above 55mph it really begins to hit the efficiency and above 65 just forget it!
My average over the weekend was 3.8m/kWh.
How are you getting 4.5+? Must be fairly flat, steady speed<50mph without roundabouts/traffic lights?
I did check for software updates in the car when I read this thread but there was nothing. My last service was last autumn.
