All well and good, but............life doesn't follow charts. Have you ever been stuck in traffic in the middle of an ice storm, when it should only take you 15 minutes to get home, but it takes 2 hours?

For those interested, I found this interesting equation ( http://www.amt.nl/PageFiles/20661/003_EEVC-23010946.pdf ): y= x*Batt/(Paux+(1/N)*(m* 9.81 * Frr + 0.5 * 1.225 * CdA * pow(x/3.6,2) )* x/3.6) y=km x = speed Batt = battery kWh Paux = standby power kW m = mass Frr = tyres rolling friction CdA =...
