Northern Beaches Trip in my Electric Vehicle

Categorised as EV Trips

It was a warm spring day in Sydney today, 35 degrees, so I drove from the NW suburbs to Northern Beaches and back, 113 km.

I was surprised that I only used 15 kWh at an average of 135Wh/km. That’s 7.5 km per kWh, much better range per kWhr than my cold weather Blue Mountains Trip earlier in the month.

I was under 80 km/hr most of the way and it was 25-35degrees during the trip.

Under today’s driving conditions a full charge on my 75kWh battery, would give a range of 562kms.

I checked my odometer also today and since new have travelled 2,432 kms using 363kWh at an average 149wh/km or 5km per 1% of charge.

So, my average full charge range, since new, is 2,432/363*75 which is 502km
