OUR Real World Range

Post by Daveion » Tue Feb 23, 2021 10:17 pm

With the warmer weather of late my drive today.
43 miles@14C, no cabin heating, mixed roads, dry.
All in D, 4.3m/kw average. 249m proj range.
Same trip 10 days ago @ 3C cabin heater 17C, wet, All in D
3.1m/kw average. 180m proj range.
It would be nice to get others data to see what OUR real world range is.
I worked my figures on M/kw x 58kw. If that's wrong please let me know.
Would be interested in hearing about others experiences. OUR real world I.D3 performance.
I would add that my fuel gauge is still the battery icon but the range projections under varying conditions is useful to know when planning longer journeys.

Agree; better info on what affects range and by how much would be really useful. With a quoted range of 260 miles, I had assumed 167 mile trip to Norwich would be easily attainable. Having seen the negative effect of cold weather, and motorway driving at 70mph, I'm now not sure I'd make it in the winter!?

I'm Planning two work trips in the next few days a 90 mile round trip followed by 250 mile round trip the next day (hoping the charge points are functioning!). I'll record the data and feedback.

I did a 30-mile journey yesterday at an average of 3.7m/kw, the highest I've noticed so far, so that would equate to 214.6 miles

It was a mix of motorway, a bit of A road, and some local roads - I hadn't done anything to the car in advance and had the AC set to 20 degrees (on both sides)

Hi Scott
3.7 sounds good with the cabin at 20C.
Was the ambient around 14C? Do you have a heat pump?

Yes it was 13-14 degrees outside, no I don't have a heat pump.

I picked my car up from the workshop yesterday to have Software update and other issues sorted.
On the return journey home, some 10mls, I achieved 5.1ml/kWh @ 13'C. That equates to about 290ml .
No heat pump.

5.1 is brilliant. Its not all downhill or with 30mph tail wind is it 😄. Seriously, that's good. Were you in D or B? Was the cabin heater on?
Mixed roads? Do you find that Mode influences your consumption much?
I got 4.7 at the weekend on a 4 mile run driving with a feather of a right foot in Eco. I think 5.1 will prove difficult to top at current ambients.

>>All in D
Just curious - assuming you're aiming for best economy / range, why are you driving in D instead of B?

I use B by default - Straw poll: I'm wondering what other owners prefer, D or B?

The regen braking seems to offer moderate range boost - unless on continuous motorway style roads with very little braking/stopping.

(I'm planning on taking some measurements to compare driving routes using D versus B soon).

I tend to drive in D as in countryside mainly, so rely on my own breaking for regen and then coasting with D means no loss of energy back into battery.
ACC and Eco then use regen when something gets in the way / speed limits change.
