Re: How Well Does My Remaining Range Compare With Other Older Cars?

Hi all!

For a different approach than the guess-o-meter, here's a list of remaining capacity on a range of i-mievs in Norway:
https://elbilforum.no/forum/index.php?topic=33622.0

Measured using the app EvBattMon and a bluetooth ODB-adapter.

The list reads:
|model year|Kms driven|max AmpereHours remaining|Capacity left %|mnth/yr measured|maker|Car owners username|

Hope you find it interesting :)

Now at 97,700 miles, I stretched to reach an EVGO DCFC tonight and what looked like two miles to spare became the turtle real quick. After driving nearly s mile and a couple of steep slopes, the EVGO station reported a starting SOC of 10% And then proceeded to sustain 119 A into the car for several minutes. However, the rate fell to 30A at 60% SOC. Total time from 10% to 80% was 28 minutes, by which time it was only drawing 16a.
That’s a steeper slowdown than I am used to, and my longest DCFC EVer...

Ambient 50 degrees F, just drove 40 miles (not from 100%).
That’s still better than the previous DCFC on eluminocity, which ramped down to under 12 kW within 5 minutes, delivering only 3.29 kWh in a 20 minute session from about 40% to 80%!
2012 i-SE "MR BEAN" 110,300 miles
2016 KIA SOUL EV, 90 kW, 27 kWh, 34k miles
2000 Mazda Miata EV, 78 kW, 17 kWh
1983 Grumman Kurbwatt EV,170 kW, 32 kWh
1983 Mazda RX-7 EV 43 kW 10 kWh
1971 "Karmann Eclectric" EV 240 kW 19 kWh

Hi Jay. What's your amp-hour reading? I'm finding myself using EVgo DCQC more often (when NEEDED, and then usually for just a few minutes), as it seems that the present cool weather hits the pack a bit harder. After my Tahoe trip I like the 'new' EVgo so much that I've signed up for their $10/month plan and I get to use that up for 'free' each month. :roll:

Mitti is at 38.1Ah with about 35K miles on the replacement pack, worse than I expected and may be due to my leadfoot driving as I continue charging really conservatively.

FWIW:
I've got 35,000 on our 2012. Purchased off dealer lot in April 2013... where it had been sitting for, I guess, a year.
When new I used to be able to COUNT on 70 miles (113 km) showing on the RR on a full charge.
And once got a legit 125 miles on a full charge.

Our driving mix is part local at under 40 mph(64 km) and part intercity mostly between 50 and 65 mph (80 to 105kmh).
Occasional bits of steep hill but mostly flat or mild slopes.
Fair to say the battery has been well treated. We charge at 12 amp (120volt charger), never level-2.
It's garaged so rarely below 40 F nor above 90 F.
And mostly we don't fully charge it ..... just up to one or two bars short of full.

So I'd say that so far the indication of a slight but noticeable loss of range is about what's expected.
And for our particular pattern of use and expectations, well, "OK."

I just did my end of month mileage recording..
I believe today I am over 190,xxx km ( 118,xxx miles)

As for my Range remaining readings -
keep in mind that my last 20 km (12 miles) drive home involves

a climb of approximately 203 m ( 665 ft )
at a speed of about 50 kmph (30mph)

In the last few days I've had 2 drastically different Range remaining readings & conditions

95 km, (59 miles) Range reading, driving solo - temps were -15 C, (5 f )
46 km, (28.5 miles) Range reading, pulling a 5 x 9 low profile empty trailer - temps were -25 C, (-13 f )

Yesterday I fully fully charged Mitti up from two bars (for the first time since I don't-remember when), and the capacity went up to 39.1Ah! Temperature around 60degF. :D
