100 mile range!
 
Yesterday, I went out and without trying too hard (my journey was broken for a rest in the middle) I got distance covered of about 89 and remaining range of about 9. After a full charge and without resetting the display, my Range reading was a nice round 100, which genuinely reflects the real world driving the day before. I generally find the Fluence's range display is pessimistic-to-accurate, rather than being a BS-ometer. Not bad for a three-year old battery pack, I suppose.

I've bumped up against 100m before but I've never really gone for a full-out pure range maximisation exercise. Later today, perhaps - haven't got much on!

Yep, I'm in the high 90's myself (high 80's last year). Again, original battery pack, so the slightly higher ambient temp must be to blame!

I've just got back from another run out - about 97 this time.

Hi my names paul and just bought a 2013 FLUENCE DYNAMIQUE as we speak only had it a day an already in love with it. The only concern i have is once a month we drive roughly 100 miles to the mother in laws, i didn't cotton on to the fact there's no rapid charge ? So my question is this as i have never driven a all electric car before how do you achieve such good milage? Can you give me tips please? How long will i need to sit at a charge point to do the 100 mile trip ? When i first looked into getting it i though a 30 min charge would give me a 80% charge sadly i got this wrong by all accounts.

Having said that the car to me is the best looking and stylish, the drive is lovely, the only thing is can i make the trip in goodish time?

I wonder if we will be able to buy a upgrade as i see somewhere where they continue to manufacture they upgraded the charge unit ?

At home i have a charge point and probably only do 130 miles a week so not really a problem, also have solar panels so would make it cheaper etc. Just waiting on getting set up for the account so i can install the app and also have a list of charge points on my journey. So far a nice renault experience.

I only use public charging points rarely, but I've had quite good experience it's the Polar instant app - you can download it to your phone/tablet straight away without having to wait for a card through the post. You have to put 20 credit on it but a lot of the locations are actually free, so I haven't actually used any of my credit up yet.

I wouldn't rely on being able to do 100 miles without some sort of Plan B but you might be OK if you could find somewhere for a 1.5 to 2 hour top up while you're having a coffee or something to eat to give you an extra 10-20 miles (all values very approximate indeed!).

Public charging points are a real minefield because of the different standards - for example hardly any of the Ecotricity points can be used by a Fluence as they have decided to concentrate on rapid charging.

So do i take it the rapid charge units can't charge at a lower rate or is it the connector ? What sort of things do you do to get the range ? like on a motorway what speed you doing etc ? I think once i got my account activate and my card for the charge stations i will do a dummy run see how it affects us, thing is i have the wife and 2 kids and normally its a 90 minute journey at normal speed, so i want to do this without to much delay lol. The only sweetener is it normally costs around 40 in petrol round trip in my zaffy, we thought e might be able to get rid of the zaffy in favour of the electric car lol .
