RE: Fluence in Essex
.. and then there were 4!!...
We seem to be all getting very similar mileages. It's good for 90 miles typical and +100 with only a little effort towards efficient driving. 120 is possible with saintly driving.
What kills is the heater, though. It will happily chew off an extra 'octal' (as I call them) on the SOC meter as quickly as every half-hour or so. Renault's stated winter driving range of 58 miles is very honest and is probably right for a heavy-footed driver who likes to stay toasty warm. Pre-heating works well to save a few kWh of the battery, thus increase range, as it heats the heating coolant through.
It might sound perverse to say for electric cars, but I think it is an oversight not to have diesel/fuel heaters in EVs. Could be a catalytic heater, rather than a combustion type, using petrol too.
We've all yet to experience a hard winter, though.
My range over the last 1,600 miles has been ~4.6 miles/kWh on the dash, and ~4.2 miles/kWh on the metered juice that I'm actually paying for. Renault's own CO2 calcs are based on their 'wall-to-wheel' figure of 4.4 miles/kWh so I seem to be getting 95% of their stated energy economy.
