You can watch my videos riding my i-MiEV in Portugal on my youtube channel.

Malm, welcome to the Forum and thank you for posting your video. I always find it interesting observing the countrysides of various countries through the eyes of their iMiEVs.

Very interesting video. I picked up a few words but I noticed you were in D for the few times you captured your instrument panel. Another interestng fact, you were on the motorway at 66 kmh, is that correct? What is the speed limit on your motorway? The lowest I've dared to go on the motorway in Ontario, Canada is about 70 kmh and that is going up a steep hill that I try and preserve some of my range (autonomy), other than that I'm usually between 80 and 90 kmh on a max 100 kmh limit roadway with most people travelling between 110 - 120 kmh. What was your average speed and did you spend most of that 130 kmh in D? What other techniques did you use to extend your range. I was really impressed to see at the halfway point you were at 91.1 kmh. Very nice!

The 130 km took 3 hours to do. In Portugal the lowest speed limit on motorways is 50 kmh. The maximum speed is 120 kmh but most drivers go up 140. Because there was no traffic Portugal is full of motorways but people dont have money to use them <euro crisis<, i easily drive steady at 65 kmh on the motorway. Yes, i usuallly drive in D, but downhill i use N too. With N i gain speed and with D i brake and charge. I didn t use climatization. In the first 40 km i have to clime a hill in secondary roads and i drove very slowly *30/40 kmh. I arrived with four bars, so i believe i could do 40 km more. If there wasnt that hill in the middle i could do 180,190.

Thanks for your videos.

It's funny when it reaches maximum speed and stops accelerating. Sometimes I wonder why the power indicator not show full power, if I have the throttle full down... and suddenly I see the speed indicator dancing between 132-133 :lol:

Here the minimum speed on the highway is 60 km/h. The limit is 120, and is usually slightly exceed (about 130). Is not a good idea cruise under 90 km/h (limit and usual speed for the trucks)
