OrientExpress,
Sounds like you've had hands-on experience with a variety of new EVs, do they all have an easy to view SOC% meter or is that more the exception rather than the norm as I suspect? I personally can't see purchasing an EV without that feature but I guess if none really have it anymore I'll be forced to give up on that feature :(

I'm not sure what you mean by a SOC% meter, can you give me an example of a car that has one and what information does it provide?

SOC stands for "state of charge." It's the percentage of remaining charge that the car displays.

Do you mean the charge remaining, as in this image with the bar graph on the right hand side of the display?

Yes, except expressed as a percentage - like "95%."

Were you able to achieve the 5 miles per kWh at mild freeway speeds or was that mostly local roads? Did you feel like you needed to hypermile it much to get that efficiency?

The route that gave us 5.0 m/kWh was all state highway and was about 60 miles of downhill road at about 55-65 mph. The rest was interstate on essentially flat terrain at 65-70 mph. I used ProPilot Assist on the majority of the drive rather than trying to manually hypermile. The car is more responsible for this return than i was.

Going the other way which had the same 60 miles only uphill, the average return was 3.8 m/kWh. The rest of the drive was the same interstate and flat terrain.
