Wow! Are you a taxi driver or what?:D
I did a similar commute for three years! It's wasn't much fun. Right now my commute is about 2 miles, but thst will change the first of the year when my contract here in Korean runs out. I got to mind me a new job...Sooner or later!

I put about 20 miles per day on my EV. Sometimes I do a 65 mile round trip, without stopping for recharging and with freeway usage. I end up with almost 20% left on the battery. :D

55 miles round-trip
I'm glad I can charge at work if I need to. It's quite easy to use more than half the battery on the morning commute with the heat on and somewhat jumpy driving :D

How about us ICE owners who like the idea of maybe going ED. My commute is roughly 40+ miles of twisty,hilly back roads a day. Occasionally I'll do some side running that bumps that up to 60+. I feel that puts me squarly in the ED will probably handle it fine. However It's a hilly commute and I get concerned about the effects of cold weather on battery life.

Any opinions from those that have an ED?

it all depends on the size of that hill.... In Cali, i have rolled through the Sunol Grade, Sunol,CA... and that is a massive chunk of energy that disappears. I have been to the EAA meetings, and many claim in Cali, the Los Gatos hills are killer too. But as you may know, when you floor up the hill, let the car charge coming down the hill!!! In all cases, in CA, we have like over 13k Chargepoint Chargers and Iphone/Android apps to help us get to a near charging station. Or since you get the regular charger with the car, keep that in the back, and when you reach your destination, ask to plug in a wall socket for a while. So far, with my commute, i have had no troubles with my battery, the charges, or challenging hills. lol! all i can say is my ED does its job and looks sexy on the road! :cool:

About 45 miles a day. Mostly freeway. 40% left when I get home in the summer. 20-30% left in the winter depending on many things (if preconditioning worked, how dark each way, how cold, raining, etc).

Can't wait to get it back from MB. Been without it for 10 days now. GRRRR
