I dunno, but keep in mind none of the EPA's tests are at a steady speed and none of the average speeds of any of the test cycles are at 100 kph/62 mph. http://priuschat.com/forums/other-cars/ ... mates.html
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; has some great details about the EPA tests for ICEVs.
The highest average speed of any of the EPA test cycles is 48.4 mph.
Thanks! Watching now. I believe I'm viewer #2.
It was busy processing and unviewable for at least 30 mins after your post.
It'll be interesting to see what EV ranges look like in 2-3 years @ Leaf-like prices. I really do wonder about the resale value of a '13 Leaf w/slightly degraded (not Phoenix) battery at that time...
