This week has been the first sustained really hot weather with the Ampera, and the climate system has been doing a fine job cooling down the car and keeping me cool, even though I've just got it set to AUTO, on the middle (ECO) setting. At this point I can't see me using the MAX setting except in winter.

This week ive used the aircon a lot and found to my surprise that the effect on range is very small unlike heating in winter.Im still getting 50+miles for 10.4 kwh

Yes, thats right, it surprised me too. The aircon is obviously very efficient.. I'm getting 45-49 depending where I go, most of my driving is local, lots of stop start, so I don't usually get a route which is optimal for breaking the 50 barrier.
