MY21 Evoque R-design P300e Autobiography Eiger Grey
In EV mode I've recorded 2 short trips of 12 miles (42 mph avg) and 13 milles (38 mph avg) with remaining 9 milles. Total range 34 milles (exactly official EV range) that is more or less the distance i am reaching in the last weeks in EV mode when doing short trips.Here is my data for MPG. I've done just 4 "long" trips of 100 milles aprox during last weks:
1) 104 milles / 68 mph avg / 1h37' / 28 milles (VE) : 31 MPG (run-in car)
2) 98 milles / 67 mph avg / 1h 32' / 5 milles (VE) : 22 MPG (run-in car)
3) 99 milles / 61 mph avg / 1h42' / 22 milles (VE) : 30,5 MPG
4) 94 milles / 69 mph avg / 1h26' / 23,5 milles (VE) : 32 MPG
In all the cases the speedometer was around 80 - 95 mph during speed-highway (70% of the trip). Hybrid mode. A/C on.
I am far to reach 50 MPG in this kind of trips. One cause is not starting the trips fully charged so need to improve the VE milles. Also still running-in the car. Main reason can be the average speed that is a bit high, it should be better something around 50 mph and not going over 70-75 mph of top speed. I am using 95 petrol.
For me reaching 40 MPG in a SUV of 4800 pounds will be good enough for a 100 milles trip starting fully charged.
I'd like to reach someday over 37 milles of EV range but I need to drive 18 - 25 mph avg speed more or less, driving carefully, maybe A/C off...
