More importantly, you'd only be duplicating range @ speed that was first achieved by BEVs over a century ago, so why bother? LEAFfan got his to 188 miles on a track @18 mph avg. IIRR, so I don't doubt someone could get to 200 miles under the right circumstances.

You know what would be a good contest? A 250 mile trip. L2 charging only. See who could do those miles in the shortest possible time. Same rules as this thread. Nobody gets to start at the top of a hill! Charging time included.

So, I put a few chargers on the car and charge at 90 amps AC from three separate J1772 stations at once.

I win.

Hey ya'll. Long time off and on member of the forums. Originally owned a 2011 LEAF SL CW + QC. 3 Year Lease came up this month and moved into a 2015 LEAF SL.

I am happy to announce that in my first week (and second charge) of driving the new car I am now a member of the 100 Mile Club. I didn't think it would come this easily, and I am convinced that the 2015 might have some special sauce. I also thought that it's particularly interesting with regards to the recharge time estimates which seem much longer than before.

Started at my residence in Portland, OR on Saturday AM 09/21/14, finished at home on Monday PM 09/23/14. A mixture of city and highway driving. I would like to credit B mode with eco. Also that fresh battery is nice.

I've noticed with 2 months of my 2015 that it always charges much much faster. I think they have probably built in a worst case scenario (ie cold winter) and applied it across the board or factored in a % to over estimate to avoid customers complaining. If it charges quicker than anticipated you just live with it, if it takes longer there are some people who demand money back.

I joined the 100 Mile Club!

I went 113.4 miles, with 9 miles left on the GOM, on my most recent charge, averaging 5.9 kWh/mi, in my 2015 S. I obviously could have gone farther, but didn't see a need to. I now have about 350 miles on it. The GOM registered 116 miles after a full charge this morning.

Most of the mileage was stop-and-go commuting to work (16 mi RT, takes about 90 minutes RT, with lots of hills and stop lights and traffic). The rest was running errands. I used eco the entire time, with occasional B mode. I average about 5.6 kWh/mi on the commuting and presumably over 6 on the errands.

We also have a 2014 S, and would be able to get it over 100 miles on a charge too if we tried. But it hasn't been convenient yet to get it over 100. We've had estimated 110 mile ranges on it (90 miles on the charge, 20 on the GOM), but have always chosen to charge it up then due to the next trip being more than 10 miles.

We only charge about once or twice per week.

Next time just continue driving around the neighborhood for another 1/2 hour to go over 200km so you can be a member of that club also. It may not sound like much, but the membership benefits far outweigh the extra time to join!
