I can totally see where people are coming from, trying to eek out every last drop of battery range but...

A/C off, Traction off, eco pro & driving miss Daisy everywhere. That totally takes any fun & enjoyment out of the car for me. I'd much rather lose an extra mile or two or electric range but, at least enjoy the (relaxing cooled safe) driving experience getting from A to B
I can charge for free in work. I don't have my own driveway or a proper charger. So I'm running a cable out the front window and parking in my neighbour's drive.

And, on top of that, in London additional site email just brings you to the next set of traffic lights, jam or roundabout more quickly.

If I could change my driving to prevent me from having to charge in the evening. I'd do it every time.

Same stretch yesterday, similar conditions, driving on ICE only after running out of battery.

Constant 30mph = ~32mpg. Constant 40mph = ~46mpg.

So very different styles needed for maximum efficiency depending on what is powering your car.
