It's official: Summer has arrived
Yes, I have to confirm that my Fluence confirms the arrival of summer. I know some of you will be watching a thunderstorm out of the window as you read this but the figures prove it. My last charge exceeded the magic 100 number, with an actual range achieved of 103 miles (including 13 miles unused).
A more remarkable figure, if it's to be believed, is the average miles/kwh figure for that charge period of a remarkable 5.91 m/kwh.
Taking these two figures together that calculates out at an actual energy consumption figure of 15.22 kw over 90 miles, or extrapolating, 17.4 kw for the 103 miles.
According to Renault the battery has a usable capacity of 22kwh so where has the rest gone? Surely you're not going to tell me that the battery has lost 4.6kwh and that when new the car would have achieved a range of not 103 but 130 miles?
I cannot make these figures add up but I'm not grumbling, 103 per charge will suit me nicely, thank you.
