I've been watching this thread for a while, but until I get a proper evse installed I can't really contribute much data, (on the granny lead at 1.7 KW charging takes a while!)
I can provide some input though, gom on the Kona64 is very good, on a long run starting of with about 60% I covered over 100 miles mainly M1 and A1M and arrived at Harrogate civic centre rapid with remaining range within 5 miles that estimated before I left.
On a more usual basis most days I leave with 79% having pre-heated travel 35 miles to work and 35 miles home, after which I have 58-60% remaining, so extrapolated range very similar to that of thetx. If you want a chunk of 35 miles for approximately 10% trips though I could probably log 10 a week for you.
Although range data from 100% to 20% or even to some other low percentage is ideal It is possible to work with other data. So for your trips, if you record your daily commute for example, I would log it as

Kona,64,17,1,70,79-58

This assumes a temperature of 17 deg c average and that the driving was mostly motorway. You can log these 70 mile commutes if you wish but when you get a home charger it would be more interesting to see what range you get from 100% to 20% (or other low percentage). There are so many ways of looking at range and efficiency but for many EV drivers and potential purchasers it is the real life range for those long trips that is useful when comparing vehicles. I hope you are enjoying your life with the Kona. That commute must be a breeze.

Nah, last week I saw 3 leafs on one journey, and this morning I followed a Zoe, I've seen various i3s and model s's, but yet to see another Kona electric on the road though!
Ah yes, I meant it should be easier to spot because of the rarity.

Leaf,40,11,2,109

Still pretty cold here during my journeys except the first 10% when it was warm with no need for heating or AC I travelled 21 miles. Driving pretty slow on A roads.

Couple of recent ones at end of May

Leaf,40,17,2,117 - ending 29 May

Leaf,40,18,2,124 - ending 31 May

The temperatures I log are just a mental average of the temperature during the journeys.

Still waitng to do a single moroway journey of over 100 miles

Thanks - still hoping for more info, real data for other makes and models. I am going to present my data here along with yours and others in a graph. Just need to figure out how to get a excel graph as an image to display properly.

Ooh, judging by my charging data today I was down to 20% so:

EGolf,35.8,18,2,151.5

There were only 23 miles left on the GOM though which would suggest I was below 20%.
