Post your trip details here. Tell everyone what kind of range you are getting in what conditions. You know the drill, lots of people who are thinking about buying an EV are always interested, so let them know.
That’s impressive.First long trip(s) in our new 38 kWh Ioniq.
6 degrees outside, lashing with storm Ciara rain all the way, started with full charge.
Travelled 123 miles (approx 90% motorway) at speeds of 65-70mph (this speed would have killed our Zoe), arrived home with 51 miles predicted range left. So 174 miles in winter and in the rain at motorway speeds - not bad.
Update: when I got out of the car I could see that it is incredibly windy today (in the direction of travel), so this was probably wind assisted, so I assume it doesn't count for my personal record Still impressive.[email protected]@dy Nora. Short trip to report, coming into work, weather getting better 10 degrees, but very windy (maybe the wind was behind me). Cabin set to 21 degrees, heated seat & wheel. 6 miles/kWh!! Traffic very light due to school holidays. Very impressed. View attachment 127909
Yeah if youve got a 40 or 50 mph tailwind, that will probably explain it. I've got a 140 mile trip on Saturday into 40-50mph head winds, that could be interesting....Update: when I got out of the car I could see that it is incredibly windy today (in the direction of travel), so this was probably wind assisted, so I assume it doesn't count for my personal record Still impressive.
Well, probably would have made it, just, but was struggling to get much over 4miles per kWh. As it happens the M4 was shut so went M40 and then via a Lidl fast charger near Didcot to take on about 10kwh (c25%) Arrived with 33%. But the fast charge was important as we were overnighting at the destination on the granny charger, so had we arrived at only 10% we wouldn't have been able to leave till about midday!Yeah if youve got a 40 or 50 mph tailwind, that will probably explain it.

Did you watch the Bjorn 1000km challenge video? He was able to read the battery temp via a phone app linked to an OBD2 dongle. I seem to recall he got the best speed when the battery was circa 26c. It's worth watching the short video (or full 1000km if you have the time).Bit disappointed with the fast charge speed though, it hit 34kw max, and was charging from about 33% to 58% so should have been in the sweet spot.
Sounds excessive for charging losses. My Ampera takes 12 kWh from grid at 3.3 kW to give me 10.4 kWh SOC, so 87% efficiency. Your 12/16.5 is only 72% efficient! Did you have the heating or a/c on during that 2 hrs 20 mins? Could be the difference....
I can't get the 7.1 kW charging numbers to reconcile either. I charged for 2 h 20m at a dashboard indicated 7.1 kW which should have given me about 16.5 kW, the GOM then went up in that time from 47 to 75 percent, =28 percent of 38 Wh is closer to 12kW. Something not quite right. Charging losses?
