The numbers are starting to build-up.
The first 3 days of ownership were fun... After that, and until yesterday, an average of 12.4 without the weekends and 12.6 including the weekends is amazing.
This gives me an estimated range of about 510km. Please note that I have never tested the linearity near the end and have never gone below 18% of battery. Regardless the Kona rocks!
I was charging next to an i-Pace the other day, a $150k car (admittedly not in the same class as the Kona) that can't match this range with a 95kWh battery !!!
Today (Wednesday 25th) was the first real test. Not of the car but my range anxiety. I'm cured. 440km with a 20 minute stop to test a Tesla charger and buy snacks, and a 1 hour lunch-break to test another Tesla charger. At an average speed of 74km/h and mostly on my own (read below), the consumption did go up, but still below WLTP. Impressive.
Another surprise is how accurate the guess'o'meter is on a full day. This can only be calculated (simply) if I don't charge that day.
G dist = GOM distance and G to D is the relation between the GOM and actual km travelled.
The total daily kWh consumed is calculated from the daily km x the kWh/100km.
I hardly ever use the climate control. Possibly for a few minutes every other day. (That is as unscientific as it gets... Sorry!)
I use the seat warmer on the lowest setting for 3 or 4 minutes most mornings and very occasionally the steering wheel heater.
I always drive in "Eco" mode because "Eco" in this Kona EV is "Ludicrous" in any of my previous cars
I have a bad habit (from my travels with a thirsty Lada Niva before I had money...) of following large vehicles on the highway using the closest setting of the ACC.
I do not recommend doing this unless you have paid the "windscreen premium with no excess"
My tires are at 40psi and on long distance country travelling I have been known to fold my side mirrors to save point something of a percent. Yes I know...
And travel on my own during the week with about 50kg of tools and parts in my boot.
Tomorrow, back to Melbourne with a lunchtime charging stop just to keep cost down.
