Here in Canada, my Leaf is set to metrics.
So I did some tests in the last week and all are based on approx 75 km runs one way to work. In an earlier post many of you responded to me with wind resistance stats at different speeds and about slowing down on the highway and I will get much better results and to that I say........NOPE, not that much better!
So after many runs at 120kph or 75mph my computer shows an average of approx 18.5 kw/100kms or about 5.4 kms per kw.
Driving at 105kph or 65mph my computer shows an average of approx 17.2kw/100kms or about 5.81 kms per kw.
The difference is .41 kms per kw x a safe usable 37 kw = A lousy 15.1 kms or just about 10 miles better.
So to this I say...... ,the stats that Nissan or maybe all EV vehicles give are really never designed for commuters and highway driving.
Unless you do each speed AT LEAST 10 times (and that barely qualifies) you have nothing. Too many variables. route is the only one you have covered.
