hi paul in general short, middle journeys. I live in the Netherlands so pretty small country.HI Nick
Ive been using the car on short journeys - my thought was to take it on some longer journeys so the dat would show a different driving pattern - did you you do longer journeys from the start of having the car ? Thanks Paul
Yes the quick blast to clear screen on 6 is a killer. Personally I hate the term GOM as it doesn't reflect the accuracy designed by some manufacturers like Tesla & Audi who use topography among other features to provide a more accurate range estimate. Some of the cheaper cars literally are guessing based on simplicity such as "I'm going up a big hill I'd better reduce the number".Agreed with WetEV, personally I'm seeing cabin heating being the main culprit. Driving without heating on and I'm at 2.1-2.4m/kWh. Switched on and its obviously sucking more electrons. Pre-heating but not plugged in seems to suck ~5% of the battery. I suppose its a big cabin to heat up and it depends how you use the climate contro too.
Using "High" temp and #6 fan speed is the worst, but switching to auto and using a lower cabin heat is better. Or just have the heated seat on for the toughest among us!
Use the term of it makes you happy with your predicted range. I think it devalues the amount of time & effort some companies have invested and paints EV driving as something you constantly have to worry about just in case you don't make it home. New EV drivers could become very wary of the volatile GOM mentality and worry too much about incorrectly needing to frequently charge just in case or constantly charging to 100% every night out of panic. I went down to 0% and 2 miles once and didn't panic or assume the estimated range was wildly inaccurate.A better GOM is still a GOM. Even adding traffic, altitude and real time weather forecast awareness along with anything else you can think of doesn't make it anything other than a guess. A better guess is still a guess.
The GOM is useful. But it is still a GOM.
