I hit that also. I believe it is a software top speed to prevent mass battery drain. In one video I watched someone asked about battery drain at top speed. The engineers ran calculations and stated 170 miles at top speed theatrical. Real life I bet less depending on outside temp.Not saying that we need to go wayy faster than 92mph
But, the other day that speed was hit, and on the display it says speed limit is set at 92mph.
Did anyone encounter this ? Is this a hard set limit ?
Speed is much more likely limited in order to prevent motor overspeed. With fixed gearing the motor is spinning very, very fast at top speed. ICE engines have a redline, and so do electric motors.I hit that also. I believe it is a software top speed to prevent mass battery drain.
No, the speedometer will go to 93, I've seen it in my Bolt on level freeway. The DIC does claim that speed is limited to 92, but it's not exactly. No doubt it's possible to go faster downhill...The speed is limited to 150 km/h which shows up on the dash as 92 mph. when in fact 93 mph would be closer to the limit of 150 km/h but if the car is limited to that it may slow just before the limit.
It's not a need to go over.. it's just a matter of if you can or not. I like to know how capable things are and on the occasion push some limits..Can't see why there's a need to go over, let alone close to 150km/h in one of these. Don't really see the point in it ?
I waiting for someone to put larger diameter tires on. Then if the motor is RPM limited you should be able to go 93mph time the ratio of the new tire diameter divided by the original equipment tire. Let me know.It's not a need to go over.. it's just a matter of if you can or not. I like to know how capable things are and on the occasion push some limits..
