I did my 290 km (180 mi) winter drive yesterday (including 4 QC stops) while trying hard to keep my C-Zero going above 90 km/h (55 mph). In my previous car I'd have the speed limiting function of it's cruise control set to 90 km/h (about 86 km/h actual speed), so driving in the winter with 80 km/h limits was a simple matter of having the accelerator pedal pressed down and letting go when slowing down was needed. With no cruise control and the C-Zero always wanting to go just a little bit faster it has become a chore to try to keep it in both legal and economical limits.
So I wonder, if the vehicle already has a limiter at 130 km/h, could it be changed to 90 km/h? Anyone heard of this being possible?
Even in the summer it's much smarter to just keep around 55 mph to maximize range and you could just keep the pedal floored forever. Trucks, lorries and anything bigger are limited to about 80 km/h (50 mph) around here at all times so they're not a problem either.
