I am going to take this challenge, my commute is boring anyway. I do 80 miles round trip 5 days a week.... let's see what we can get . I can always go back to normal later.
Forgot my stats: begin each day with 30-40 temp end with 75 temp (No climate controls) Totally did 55 on the highway 80 miles a day... kept my regen to 20 or less, no braking (I had thought regen to the max was better.... but not so much. No brakes, just shited L or paddle stopped. If I keep driving like this for a couple weeks I will be at 350+ capacity with 80% top.Ok gang, I have done the 20/20 challenge all week, What a difference in my efficiency.... this is the way to commute! I only charged once all week, versus everyday before.
My 80% max charge top I have said 265 miles when I did charge up.... I am going to try it with "Sport" mode and see how it does by comparison.
Well now you know what you can get.... so Drive away.... do the Beep Beep here comes the roadrunner.... LOLYeah... I tried, too.
But then, about 150 miles into my "tank", I could not stand the slow moving cars an I zipped between them.
Screw the efficiency!
So far I saw 5.5 miles/kWh. That would give me over 300 miles on the full charge.
What kills my stats are stop and go. If I could just roll... it would be nearly 6 as speeds are about 45 mph and below.
I did a trip at 50 mph steady, round 60 miles, and the average was 5.2. But that was no stopping at all. Maybe once.
With average of about 4.5 miles to kWh I translate it to (using MI petrol price 3.0/gallon for premium at Costco and 0.15/kWh at home) 90 MPG.
Far better than, say GTI if I had one now, that would average 20 MPG.
If I do 5.5 m/kWh, it would be 110 MPG.
What for? No fun... why would I buy GTI if I do not drive it?
The car is to be driven.... zooommm, brrruuuum, burp, burp (those are DSG farts )
That is Hilarious!!!Don't forget your sign!

Well it is fun, but the styling does not say fun/flashy.... a super aerodynamic sporty looking futuristic style is what I would like....Are you saying Bolt is not fun to drive?
Although, I must admit - 500e was way more engaging and feisty.
