What does 3 mean that; the 88 kwh will produce 270 mile (430 km) epa range in an AWD like estimated? I was leaning for 450 km and a small increase; guess now that will be surprising.1. Companies "self-certify". Run the tests, send the results to EPA.
2. EPA can elect to audit anyone's vehicle and test results, i.e. take the same test vehicle the company used to get its test results, and run it themselves to make sure they are not pulling a "VW diesel". You're gonna have to trust Ford on this one, since the EPA Ann Arbor lab is still basically "COVID closed".
3. I anticipate you will be completely unsurprised by the final EPA range numbers.
I thought that540km = 335.5 miles, which would be great, if EPA... will be disappointed if those come out lower than originally planned.
NEDC minus 17% for real world
WLTP minus 8% for real world
EPA minus 2% for real world
was a rule of thumb. That places EPA at about a 6% difference but does not line up with the estimated EPA unless there are different batteries 600 (375 mi) x 0.94 = 564 km 352 miles does not line up with an EPA of 300 miles? Different packs for Europe?
EDIT: 600 x 0.94 x 88/100 kwh = 500 km 310 mi?
