I can understand the current performance, given the temptation to put the peddle to the metal!
You're still having fun and not trying to hyper-mile it on this trip!!

I’ll be in that camp. Fun vs range I’m sure will be mode of operation for awhile.

Nick, thank you for posting all of the updates. Very happy for you and for sharing your experiences with the truck. Reading your posts makes it feel like we are with you as you discover the new experience of driving it. (It also helps us deal with the waiting for ours lol) 😊

1.6 mi/kwh is not great … did you happen to climb any mountains ? Hauling 5000lbs in the truck ?


At 1.6mi/kwh and 100% trip charge
SR 98kwh - 156 mi range
ER 131kwh - 209 mi range

At 1.6mi/kwh and 90% daily charge
SR 88.2kwh - 141 mi range
ER 117kwh - 188 mi range

At 1.6mi/kwh and 80% daily charge
SR 78.4kwh - 125 mi range
ER 104kwh - 167 mi range

And this is assuming one can use the full battery capacity.

This is actually close to what I expected for real world driving. And why I opted for the SR. Going to the ER only yields 42 extra miles for the average day, at a >$18,000 extra cost.

Not all bad. Less than 9mph give or take
1.6 mi/kwh is not great …
How much less?
A 9 MPH headwind will make a big difference. It’s like driving 79 instead of 70. Energy required varies with cube of the speed. I can lose 0.5 M/kWh or more in my more aerodynamic Mach-E under those conditions.

Thanks for sharing this info so soon, enjoy the trip.

This is lining up to be very similar to the 75D (rated 259) when I drive fast with respect to a standard range estimate (rated 230) Will be great for a truck, and seems closer to reality. Still the adjustment for some will be understanding effect of outside forces.

I disagree a tad here as someone who lives in the great white north. That number will reduce significantly in the winter (-20C is not uncommon), so I am worried. If we also assume a 50% reduction when towing the airstream, its not great, given the charging networks are pretty bad.

that’s fair, I’m in MN but I also don’t tow anything just use bed for yard stuff. Need them networks updated!

Yup, the headwind is a big factor, and I think OP said they were driving 75. 1.6 miles per kWhr at an effective 84mph is pretty good!

At -20C, you will lose about 40% from temperature alone.

Isn't that assuming that the battery is clamped at ambient temps?

Slowing down will do a lot to decrease consumption/ increase efficiency.
Someone needs to do a range test at 65, then 70, and then 75 and see the difference. I bet you lose 15 to 20% between 65 and 75mph.
