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

In the winter I was seeing an average of 3.6 miles/kWh & now that the weather has warmed up a bit I'm currently at 4.7 miles/kWh over the last 650 miles. That's split evenly between highway/rural roads & residential. I currently drive 59mph on the highway with ProPilot engaged because it helps me not get caught playing lane frogger.

My Leaf ((24 kWh) must be one too, 5.1 to 5.4 consistently!

Same here. Leave eco on to reduce hard acceleration, always on B when not on the highway. 5 miles/kWh even in 45 degree weather is pretty easy to achieve. (Unless driving uphill)

Without hard heat/cooling and heavy passengers, 5 is even doable at 53-55 mph. On flat Illinois roads at least.

Our 2011 never went more than 70 miles, the 19' SV we leased in January so far is proving that the advertised range of 150 is low. I drove to work with it about 84 miles round trip and I had 75 left on GOM, not bad given I drove 75MPH most of the way and didn't use Eco.

Our ‘13 could do the 100 if you drove gently for first 2-3years. Our Leaf was one of the low gid models that never showed more then about 257 Gids max. We are an always in eco mode set of drivers. That magic 100 is now closer to 80 as battery is down a bar since end of year 5. Car is still very useful for day to day even with the handicap.

And then how many years to reach the 100 ?

I feel the GOM is pretty bad when I drive mostly at highway speeds. What was your SOC when you had 75 miles left?
