You're assuming your dealer wll have charged the car to 100%! If he only charges to 50%, you're really in for a struggle!Glad I am not due to collect my car for another 2 weeks after reading these posts. Dealer is 22 miles from home and it is going to be uphill into 40 mph winds at 0c this weekend. May not make it 😂
This is not my experience. I have almost finished the second month with the I5 RWD 73kwh (first month observations HERE).Greetings everyone.
Having recently picked up my new Ioniq 5 advanced (rear wheel drive only) with the extended battery I was all fired up.
Finally my Ioniq 2020 was out-matched, our so I thought.
For sure - the I5 charging is way way better than the I2020, but range .. Oh dear. Not sure what to say.
Having done around 3000 km, I seems to be stuck around 4,4-4,6km/kwh - and a actual range below of 300km.
This is far far away from the WLTP of 481km (to compare - my I2020 has a WLTP of 311km and does around 240km in real life). Running in ECO mode, and maxing speed at 110km/h,, driving really old-man-style here with optimized use of recuperation rather than manual breakes.
I am soooooooooo dissapointed.
I would be very interested in hearing from other owner about their range experiance
If I was getting 2.4 miles per 1% of battery used I would more than happy. I am getting just over that range per KWh 2.5-2.7 miles/KWhThis is not my experience. I have almost finished the second month with the I5 RWD 73kwh (first month observations HERE).
With the heating set to 20 C, fan set @ level 1, with external temp @ 2C I am getting a real world range of around 2.4 miles per percent. Yes this equates to 240 miles for 100% but it is rare that I charge to 100%. When warm (external 15C+) I have averaged around 2.8 miles per %. Overall my average is currently 3.7 miles/kwh down from initial 3.9 which I guess is around 275 miles for a full charge?
I tend to do 80% motorway driving so I set as follows for the above figures;
if not wet/icy then ECO mode, regen Level 1
If wet/icy, SNOW mode. Regen is also 1. SNOW mode is because I find the traction control a little sharp and SNOW smooths the power delivery to stop wheel spin. Basically it now drives a little like a standard ICE car with respect to off the line acceleration.
If cold/icy, I use the app to start the climate control. This is very useful as the car is ready to go when I get to it. I like this feature a lot. Not having to wait for defrost in the car is great 😀
I am doing a long journey this weekend so I will make note on temps, mileage and charging.
I’m amazed people have put any faith in WLTP figures and not researched the real world range! Furthermore as with any other vehicle range will always drop off at this time of year.
Driving style, particularly with a car lacking aero dynamics, and an ev, will also play a heavy role. Speeds in excess of 65mph kill range.
Im sure in summer months an average of 240 miles will be easily achievable, that being the case 200- 220 at this time of year would be my expectation before I committed to ordering. Having researched before that nothing have read here comes as a particular surprise to me. I’ve got a BMW i3 which shows a range of 10-15% less in winter than summer - about comparable.
And just wait until you see what the torque/acceleration/weight and driving style does to tyre wear but that’s for discussion in about 12 months time 😂!
