Just got my 2020 38.3kW Ioniq. Fantastic EV 馃榾

Driving around the rather hilly Royal Forest of Dean and Gloucester I have done 164 miles and consumption reports 5.7 miles/kWh. Not sure if this is what I should expect?

After a full charge I have driven 100 miles and the car says my battery is at 50% with 100 miles range left.

It's been a bit cold and windy here today, temperature around 14degC.

Welcome here!
These are good numbers for these temperatures. The 5.7 miles/kWh makes 218 miles for the 38.3 kWh battery, which is more than the European WLTP indication of 193 miles (311 km). Of course, your speed also has a strong effect: higher speed will give you lower numbers.

You can add your numbers to this Google Sheet to compare them to others.

Just completed a 226 miles trip on a single charge with 6% left. Car reports 6.5 miles/kWh.

This car is amazing !!!!!

Stopped to charge at a Rapid and got 30kWh in 43 mins. More importantly, that is 30 x 6.5 = 200 miles added, or a charge rate of 273 miles/hour.

This car is amazing !!!!

For a full battery, this would make a range of 38.3*6.5 = 249 miles = 400 km!
How did you do this?

You certainly should add this to the Google Sheet I mentioned, then you will get the top position, as until now nobody got such amazing numbers.

Temperature was between 15degC and 18degC. I always use full regen when driving an EV, so set to 3 in the Ioniq. Roads were mainly dry, but there was some rainfall. HVAC set to 18degC.

Very light accelerator pedal control is required, no rapid movements either accelerating or braking. Use one pedal driving and look well ahead to both slow down and accelerate. Do not exceed 65mph.

After you added your numbers, we have now reached a range of 400 km in the Ioniq 38 kWh Google Sheet:

This is a test of the 38 kWh Ioniq for constant 70 miles/h (113 km/h) highway driving. The outcome is an efficiency of 4.5 miles/kWh (7.2 km/kWh) and estimated range of 171 miles (275 km). For efficiency, it beats the Model 3 by 6% and is the most efficient car for this test.

That is very good. Best I managed was around 6 on a 140 mile journey, with a following wind, it was winter though. The outward journey though into wind of about 30-40 mph I struggled to get much over 4!
I do end to take the slightly slower but shorter route these days though, as firstly it doesn't take much longer, and secondly is more efficient and obviously also saves the miles on the lease!

Are you doing most of your driving in eco mode then?

For long trips it doesn't really matter which mode you select. The important thing is slow pedal movement. I always use maximum regen and single pedal driving. Remember that average speed is not the same as constant speed. I don't use cruise control. Uphill gradients and acceleration are the killers of range. Slow down a bit on the uphills, and don't accelerate rapidly. Try to build up speed on the downhills and gradually on the flat. Do not exceed national limits. There is a big difference in consumption driving at 70mph compared to 65mph on the MWay. On a three hour trip it would only add 15 mins to your trip time and could save a requirment to stop for a charge, which would take much longer.
