248mi @ 3.1mi/kWh was easy to get without even trying, they said.

The first leg was 72mph cruise control and did 124 miles using 46% SoC.
Second leg was 102mi with 28mi (11% SoC) remaining.
Third leg was 22mi after lunch stop back to base with 9mi (4% SoC) remaining.

This really was a FANTASTIC video. Gives me much hope that I'll have good results from my 300 mile EPA RWD ER. I'm already thinking of a small road trip to test it! Now, if it would just ship from the factory (it was built almost 2 weeks ago!)

Why was the indicated range 240 when he left? It's supposed to be 270.

He says at the start that it was still estimating mileage based on his lead foot driving around town.

The Range "learns" how you drive... so maybe it was the estimate based on previous driving cycles, maybe there was lots of acceleration, unbriddled, etc.

But with time,the car will learn how you drive and will tell you more accurately how many miles YOU will be getting out of the car and it will more likely match your actual results

At 73F I was kind of hoping it would exceed epa, but oh well. I guess it's still very good. Those how's my driving numbers are terrible. I think that means that the radar cruise control isn't very inefficient.

If it was a press car then LOTS of lead feet. Theory is that it will learn from your driving so after a while the estimated range should be more accurate

The EPA range is calculated at a much lower average speed. No EV on the market matches its EPA range when driven at 70mph.

Actually tuck in behind a Semi and you'll get way, way above EPA. In scaled wind-tunnel tests, driving 100 feet behind a semi at 55 mph will reduce drag on your car by 40%. The drag reduction increases as you approach the bumper of the truck until you get a 93% drag reduction at a distance of 2 feet. Don't recommend you try for the 93%! :)

Anyone know what the "one bar" adaptive cruise control distance is on the Mach E?

Drive downhill the whole way and you'll beat it too, but I think we're throwing out the silly scenarios.
