Topped up battery on ze40 today after dropping of better half as a key worker at Waitrose. 10mile round trip, twice a day.

The range shown with a full battery is just over 220 miles... well impressed. Obviously max speed is 30mph on this journey but nevertheless still happy.

Hopefully getting my new Ze50 from Badger in a couple of weeks looking forward to seeing what she can do.

Now reset trip B and see where your range is.

Now try to drive 220 miles 😂 GOM range is not what you will achieve
5.6mpkwh average, 6 is definitely possible if you drive economically enough, but you would lose the will to live before 200miles. I managed 132miles on my 22kWh model, and it took a long time... but showed 6mpkWh is possible.

Someone apparently did 229.9 miles on a BMW i3 with 44kwh. Presumably this was along a roman road at 15mph for about a week ...

Indeed. I averaged 6.3mpkWh when I did my 262 mile run. It was part of my normal routine, not around a deserted airfield at 15mph. It was all urban driving in an area that is very flat. Took 10 days. Admittedly I drove very economically, but given the average speed of London traffic, probably only slightly held other drivers up now and again. And, very importantly, I did it in July when the average temperature was consistently over 20 degrees centigrade.

Very good! My 132.2miles was on a Q210 with battery degredation, slower rural roads mainly but very hilly (up the Falkland Hill road no less and into the lower part of the highlands), all in 1 day that started cold and raining but average through day was in upper teens temp and dry.

After resetting as you suggested last week Sandy I recharged today after doing about 155 miles. After driving 8miles today the range is shown as 224...(224+8 = 232miles) and getting 5.48MPkWh

Again, with Zoe, the miles you get isn't what GOM shows.... the miles you get is what you've covered. Doing 1 short trip gently and then posting "range" is the oldest trick in the EV book. Honestly go do 232miles on one charge.... ;)

At an average of 20 mph, that's a mere 11 hours in a Zoe. :)
OP said the car has 232miles range, that's on him to prove it. What GOM tells you isn't proof. As anyone who has charged to 100% at a charger that's uphill from home, drive gingerly 8miles mainly coasting then say its got huge range... until you press the go pedal. His mpkWh doesn't even tally with his claim. :ROFLMAO:

I will just keep taking other half to work and back twice a day and see how far it goes down on one charge.
I know it won't do the full range shown, but as Renault say it should do 170 to 180 in summer I was curious how it would perform on 30mph roads with very little traffic.
I drive in town at 30mph but have to stop at lights etc... that's why the avg mph is lower.. I was only telling people that I was
happy with range I was getting lads and wanted to say so 😊.. no oldest trick in book...I was not meaning to deceive anyone. 😥
From the date Sandy suggested resetting which I did milage was 10274, the car mpkwh was checked at 10437 miles. I know it's only a distance of 163 miles but 5.48 mpkwh is what it shows me..

Well as I said earlier I kept driving dropping off and picking up other half from work... results as shown.

Driven 203.6 miles since last full charge, with 24 miles remaining.
When plugged in to charge 10% battery capacity left.
Giving a total range of 227 miles, although I'm not going to run her down till she stops.

62kWh used since last reset covering 351 miles
5.68mpkwh shown at avg 19.9mph, remeber that it's 30mph limit to and from work place and 5mls each way.

Well done Zoe.

Almost got to my record of 261 miles. Keep trying 😉
