I completely understand

First car : 78 Firebird
Second Car: 75 Camero
Third car: 85 Trans Am tpi

Cars that died from natural causes: 0

From then in I have switched to economical cars.

One Month from my new plus. I am hoping I can find 5 miles per kWh at 55 with some careful driving.

I did 4.9 with my 2013 S driving in D mode. With my 2017 S I get 4.5 driving most of the time in B mode. I prefer B for the regen braking - I only use the brake when I come to a full stop. If I drove in D all the time no doubt my average would go up due to coasting - I use D for highway driving.

I am the original owner of a 2012, drive all of the time in ECO mode, & my lifetime average at 41,000 miles is 4.6. I will be getting new tires this week and am hoping not to experience too big of a range hit as I am down 3 capacity bars.

I've got a 2015 S, just under 25,000 miles, still with 12 bars. I drive about 500 miles per month in the Chicago suburbs, my average speed is just under 25 mph. Last July I started tracking miles/kWh monthly:

Jul - 7.2
Aug - 7.1
Sep - 6.9
Oct - 6.5
Nov - 5.6
Dec - 5.1
Jan - 4.9
Feb - 5.1
Mar - 5.5

I charge from a 120 VAC outlet in the parking deck at work, 2 - 3 times per week. You will often see me walking around with a big smile, as I am VERY happy with this car!

We are at 6.3 Km per KWH. Cold winters but limited use in winter. Hot summers. Probably 70 percent of mileage at 70 to 90 kmh. Still 12 bars but it’s only 3 years and a bit old. 2016 SV. Every month or so we charge to 100 percent and get about 190 to 200 Km range which is actually not too far off from reality in our conditions. Probably down about 20 km from new.

Anyone have a sheet on the e+ efficiency st different speeds? Not dyno tests, but flat track test? I saw a nice article on the Tesla’s, Hyundai, and Audi, but no Leaf.

Yah that would be interesting to see. My guess is less than the earlier version as it is heavier.

Late spring update for us. 6.7 km per kWh. It’ll hang here for awhile but then start to head back to 6.3 as the AC is used more. Seasonal pattern for us.

Ok, did my first stock test on the hwy at 53-55mph. About 63 degrees at night. A few miles was on the propilot. 22 miles round trip. was about 4.5 on the run, which was a couple 10ths lower then I hoped. I adult sized passenger.

Around town, if careful I could keep it at 6 miles per kWh.

Has anyone tried taping the grill or other mods (beyond 44psi in the tires) yet on the E+?

4.5 x 60 kWh = 270 miles, which is still pretty reasonable, though would like to find a way to 300 miles at 55.
