Re: Minimum Range Remaining

Reviving this ancient thread after ten years.

I started out yesterday on a full charge and HVAC OFF with RR=36.

Why, you ask?

The previous day I came home pulling a 1000+lb trailer on the highway for over 20 miles. This i-MiEV has about 50K miles on its replacement traction battery and now has a capacity of 36.8Ah. Remember, RR is based on the car's consumption for the previous 15 miles (24km).

I could post a photo of the dashboard, but I'm sure others can beat this full-charge minimum at this point in history. :twisted:

Re: Minimum Range Remaining

20 miles with a 1,000 pound trailer sounds pretty good. How aero was the trailer?
2012 ES, Cool Metalic Silver, very basic, no extras. Over 60K miles!
