Would have been good the throw a few common ICE and PHEV vehicles in there for comparison, even though we're already familiar with those (1 refuel, ~5 minutes, <9 hours).
Especially since ABRP still shows 2.64 miles/kWh at 65 MPH. Times 88 kWh that's just 232 miles of range.Interesting that they're only showing 3% loss of range on the MME ER AWD at 65 MPH (261 vs 270). Seems optimistic.
The 2.64 IS based on the full 99kwh battery, but with it ONLY getting 270 miles on that 99kwh. If they correctly used 88kwh for the battery size the mi/kwh would be 2.97Especially since ABRP still shows 2.64 miles/kWh at 65 MPH. Times 88 kWh that's just 232 miles of range.
Something's not right.
Edited: 2.64 x 98.8 = 261. That's probably what they did. Which is a problem. I'm guessing that since many BEVs don't publish "usable" battery capacity, they just calculate from the full battery. Which inflates range, potentially throwing their whole analysis off as too optimistic.
While true, it's probably the same for ALL the models on that list. Meaning, even for the models already on the road, I doubt they're using real world driver reports. They're probably just using the same published claims from the manufacturer like we're seeing from Ford.ABRP does not have a magic crystal ball to be able see what the charge curve is on the MME. They can not predict when to unplug for the MME or many others on the list.
I guess that makes sense, if they're using "full" battery for every model rather than "usable". Which means their miles/kWh numbers are totally bogus.The 2.64 IS based on the full 99kwh battery, but with it ONLY getting 270 miles on that 99kwh. If they correctly used 88kwh for the battery size the mi/kwh would be 2.97
