Re: What is your real world range with 40 and 62 KWH?

Anyone do more then 300 miles on a charge with the plus yet?

If you can get 5.2 miles/kWh at 59 miles per hour, it should be possible and not too painful.

My 2019 40 kWh got 7.1 miles/kWh the other day while doing 72.5 MPH.

Notes:
1. slight downhill grade
2. slight tail wind
3. partial coasting
4. drafting a semi
5. tire pressures @ 52 psi
6. windshield wipers removed
7. side mirrors folded inward

;) ;) ;)

that is some crazy hypermiling. Please don't hurt yourself, drafting too close.

Does removing the windshield wipers and folding the mirrors help?

I also have range anxiety on my 2018 SL.
I lease, nothing I can do about it for another 2 1/2 years.


Not true. You can trade in a leased vehicle. There’s always a payoff figure. You don’t know if you don’t ask.

How well or poorly you do to end the lease depends on how the lease was structured. Cap Cost, residual value, money factor, cap cost reduction and acquisition fees calculate the lease payment. There’s also may be a disposition fee at the end if you don’t re-lease.

If you negotiated a low cap cost and high money factor you don’t get hurt much terminating the lease early. If your lease had a high cap cost and high acquisition fee getting out early could be costly.

I helped my daughter sell her leased Lexus back to a Lexus dealership after she got divorced and couldn’t afford the lease payment. She had 18 months remaining on the lease. She only had to give the dealership a check for $150 to walk away.
