The informally documented record by a couple of Hungarians is 219.5km (136.4mi) and is shown on this YouTube video with English subtitles:
They drove the poor iMiEV to a standstill, but they were very obviously gentle about it.
Now, while acknowledging this record by a Euro-spec iMiEV, for the purposes of our myimev.com Forum and this Topic I'm still soliciting our members to beat acensor's current record of 112.1miles (180.4km). Photos or video of the event appreciated.
Since I stopped my run with still having 15 miles on the RR meter (as I wasn't really out there trying for a record) I claim a defacto record of 127.1 miles.
Is that fair play?
Based on my experience I believe if willing to run the car down below turtle state that 136.4 is very achievable . But I don't want to mal treat my Battery pack like that.
Should we set some ground rules?
Like, ok to run down to one bar and take full credit for any reading on range remaining?
