So after driving a LEAF for 5 years, I am use to to thinking about my energy usage. I have no range anxiety now. My commute is 30 miles each way to work. So this morning I decided to see what it takes to drive like a normal person and not in the slow lane with the heat off and coat on, so that I can make it home. I am also curious about vampire drain.
So this morning I left the house with 285 mile of range.
That was 91% but forgot to take a pic.
The nav said I would arrive with 81% and could round trip it and be home with 72%
As I got to work, it had changed to arriving with 80% and return home with 71%
When I got there, I parked with 250 miles of range and 80%
The stats for the drive are here. So I drove 30.5 miles and used 35 miles of range.
For you Leaf drivers, that works out to 3.73 miles per KWh. So a little worse than my Leaf at 3.9 Miles per KWh
But I also drove at 70-73 mph vs 63 mph. And I had the heat on the whole 40 minutes with no coat on. AHHHHHHH, it was so nice.
So very happy with those numbers. I will be parked there for 2.5 days. I left it with 80% at 5am. At 1pm, it says 79% and 246 miles. But that could be noise level since it may have been right at the cusp of changing to 79%. I will report how she does at 24, 48 and 57 hours parked.
