Yep.My Mach e showed 238 mile range at 88% charge (238/0.88 = 270.45). Live in sunny California.
Nice to know. I just checked again, and I now calculated a 275 mile range. The Mach e truly is a California car.Yep.
One day I drove 267 miles on a single charge (not a road trip) and it showed 22 miles of range left. So I know I can get at least 280 miles on a single charge and perhaps even 300 if I push it.
Now that weather is nicer here in Wisconsin, my AWD ER range went up. I am talking actual driving range, not GOM range. Last week, I charged to 100% and averaged 3.7 miles/kWh for 302 miles of driving on that charge. I recharged at that point even though the GOM thought I had 22 miles left. This was probably 80% around town driving and 20% highway driving at ~65 MPH. Climate control was used very little (not quite warm enough here yet to not use any heat) and thus accounted for only 6% of my power use. Except for the 20 miles that I let my neighbor drive the car, I drive pretty moderately. I suspect his 20 miles with mostly Red evaluations for acceleration, braking, and cornering and speeds up to 90 mph put a dent in my overall range (but he and I both enjoyed that 20 miles--might have created a new EV convert). By the way, the GOM at the beginning of that 302 miles of driving estimated I could go 236 miles. After I did another full charge, the GOM read 267 miles. I guess it is learning slowly.My Mach e showed 238 mile range at 88% charge (238/0.88 = 270.45). Live in sunny California.
You can also take your State of Charge % reading and multiply by 3. For CR1 that should be fairly reliable for a mix of City/Hwy driving in moderate weather.It's definitely cool when the guess-o-meter shows a range at or above the EPA estimate. Glad to see the cold weather folks seeing some improvements as things warm up
I've only charged my Route 1 to 100% once in the 6 weeks I've had it, and it showed 320 miles. So I've got that going for me, which is nice (played golf today so forgive the Caddyshack line lol).
I generally ignore the GOM though, and just multiply my remaining KWH by my average MPK, which over the first 2100 miles is at 3.9mpk with probably 75% highway driving (yes, I live in SF which basically has perfect EV weather and I'll have to adjust if I ever go anywhere cold lol).
