Testing Electric Vehicles in the World

Bring up the topic of cars and the conversation will drift to the issue of range. understandable because we’ve all conditioned to think that below 250 miles is insufficient.

But gasoline talking. EVs are fundamentally as our Electric Car Comparison Test You plug them in at home and them overnight while asleep, waking up with a tank every morning of making a weekly detour on the way to where you grit your as you watch the dollars rack up on the

range does matter. The there is, the farther you can live work and the more unplanned trips you can take on the way. We get that.

The EPA does a good job of driving range for shopping and we generally agree with conservative approach. Optimistic estimates may be OK for gasoline-powered vehicles fuel is everywhere and refueling are short, but the same sort of thinking on an electric car’s sticker could leave stranded or saddled with a that doesn’t meet needs in real-world conditions.

What this means, is that it’s easy to a given electric vehicle’s range if you follow some fuel saving tips: and brake gently, avoid speed, look well the road so you can anticipate traffic and and leave sufficient space so you don’t overreact to what are doing. Many EV shoppers want to know what is possible with this of prudent but by no means hypermiling to driving.

And that’s where our suburban consumption test loop in. Originally established when began to flourish, our so-called One Lap of County test course is a circuit around Orange California, that includes zero freeway miles, than a few hills and dozens of and stop signs along the

The length of the course carries no significance it’s not some of electric vehicle pass/fail Still, any EV that can make it all the way to the starting point has indeed something worth noting, and we pins stuck in a map is a good way to the relative performance of those don’t complete the lap.

In order to compare results, all of the cars were driven by the driver, one per day, starting at 8 each time to experience the weekday traffic pattern. temperatures are mild on the course, so no control is necessary other an open fresh air vent. there we follow all speed and we cap our speed at 50 mph in a few places where the limit is higher so this turn into a freeway

In the interest of safety we start for a convenient place to stop the distance-to-empty gauge (DTE) to 5 miles. Any vehicles that it back to the start are halted In every case the cars are back to our metered Level-2 port so we can determine consumption.

Any DTE miles are added back in to the total range.
