4 Years & 100k miles/160k km Review & Range Test

Fri Jun 29, 2018 9:56 am

Today is Bluey's Birthday, 4 years with us, & over 100,000 miles/ 160,000 km.
Concerned about the battery health after all these miles I thought that a real conditions range test would be in order.

I got in contact with friend, who is also a member here, dondakin, and we got busy.
We came up with this 4 year review & range test video.

A Big Thanks to Don who did a super job, as he did bear the long and tedious chore of editing and filming .
As things turned out it was a lot more fun than work and we had a blast doing it.

The final result is here for those interested....

Congrats on achieving 100 k miles. It seems that the battery in the 2014 is very robust.

Btw: I see from the map that you’re from the Montreal area. I just finished with a conference in the Point Claire area. Very close!

Thanks Kiev & ed5000

Yes Pointe-Claire on the west island of Montreal was very close to our starting point.
Amazing how small the world it is .
I see your located very near by Los Altos where my brother lives and joeS is nearby as well.

We had the pleasure of getting together with JoeS & Cathy last fall & Dondakin joined us on the west island for a nice Lunch..
If your ever out this way again look us up.

Sandy, It was mentioned in the video that canion, unfortunately wasn't able to be used during this voyage, but do you have an idea how much useable energy is currently available in your battery? Thanks

A 2014 model should have the later battery technology, which probably accounts for the range.

Bluey went to the Mitsubishi service for a final once over to check the battery health at 157,000 km just before the battery warranty expired at 160,000 km.
The only information they wrote about the battery was that....
All cell voltages were between 3.90 & 3.95 .

Sorry I don't have canion, that's all the information I have.
