Some trips I'm easily pulling 80+ miles. Other trips, 58 miles brings the battery gauge pretty low to around 15% or even less. Depends on the conditions, driving styles, weather, etc,.

Does anyone know the length of the races in Europe the EQ electric 453's are participating in? Should be some long pit stops.....

Mileage may vary

I picked up a 2015 ED that came off of a 3 year lease. So far it gets around 70 mile a charge in nice weather and around 45 miles when I have to run the heater a lot. Plenty for my around town driving.

We have been able to tweak out 80 miles on nice days that don’t require a/c on our 2015 and as little as 30 on those 0F days with full time heater running

I get 80 miles on days above 50' generally. It's whenever the temp gets close to 32' that there's a good drop. That onboard battery heater really burns through the watts I guess.
When I see the estimated over 60 I get really cheery. I know it's a great day before I even pull outta the garage.

End of 2018 I did a dead to full run on my (then) 41k mile 2013 ED, and pulled 78.3 miles out of one charge. Overnight Low: 28, Daytime High: 55. That's my personal best - previously it was 76 miles.

I have only had my 2016 smart ed for a few weeks. I live in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, just two miles from the Mexican border. The summers are usually around 100 everyday so I have to use my air conditioner all the time. It seems like the air conditioning almost sucks more juice than the traction motor itself. Just wondering with air on all the time what kind of mileage do you guys get. I have never ran battery super low but it gets pretty low, like around 20% after driving only 25 to 30 miles. Yikes. Car only has 4700 miles on it. Is that normal or do I have a problem?

Ricky - so are you saying it goes down to about 20% from a full charge or from the 80% charge that you have talked about before? I almost never turn my AC on and I get about 80 miles in the summer on a full charge. When I do turn it on, the estimated miles left drops by about 10 miles and pretty much stays there. Hopefully others who use their AC like you do will chime in with their experiences. However, if you are only charging to 80%, take it up to 100%. You're not going to hurt anything.

Yes I do only charged 80%. I guess I’ve been so paranoid about battery life and battery failure. I’m an old guy and this will be the last car I buy so I’m just hopping in the last few years. I guess I should just do what you say and charge it to 100%. I figured since I live in such an extremely hot climate in the summer charging 100% might be a bad idea.
