Practice having the car in the 0 power position with the accelerator. The more you can roll when approaching red lights, the better your efficiency.

My first few months on my used 2013 I was getting 5mpkw on bald max inflated ecopedias , the winter came and snow tires dropped to 4/4.1 mpkwh.

Been doing my best with this. There are a lot of hills where I drive though, and typically a good number of cars around me, so I try to drive ‘normally’ as much as possible. I’m a long term coast-to-the-light guy though since I hated converting gasoline into brake dust, so I do decently with that. I’m sure it’ll get a little better as I get more e-pedal practice.


Sage, somewhere my etheory professor just snapped a pencil because I did that, haha.

4.5 m/kwh

Mostly in town, rarely above 50, often in traffic where I modulate and use regen as much as possible. I also do exercise the torque occasionally when appropriate, so not your grandma either. :twisted:

3.9 mi/kwh in the cold on snow tires. Not unhappy with that at all.

Summer on the stock all-season Michelins more like 4.3 or so, and I don't drive it like a baby carriage. Almost exclusively in town, suburb to suburb.

I hug the shoulders so tue baby carriages can fly by. I had one drive yesterday (mid 40s and sunny) of a few miles at 5.9 . It was all 30 and under, but love to see 5s back more consistently.

I'm in my third year of tracking mi/kWh per calendar month. For the last three months I've had my best results ever: 5.0 mi/kWh.

Admittedly, I'm avoiding freeway driving and heavy throttle use, and making minimal use of HVAC. I also run ~50 psi in the tires.

It's your rims and psi helping.

This month our S+ averaged 5.2 miles/kWh on our EV01s. This includes some hvac and a little freeway.

Impressive. Stock (steel) wheels? Are you running maximum cold tire pressures (44 psi typically)?

Another factor is how worn down your tire tread is. Mine are still pretty new.

You clearly know how to drive efficiently, based on your signature details.
