If you are curious about what Porsche is thinking about range estimation, check out their latest patent application here:
http://evtechpatents.com/?p=79#more-79

In short, they want to allow speed, acceleration, AC limits but also use the GPS system to take into account elevation, road speed, weather, etc.

My patent application takes into account the internal temperature of the driver. See, there is this probe....

Well, if you are paying $800+ for the Porsche plug-in hybrid, then there may not be room for that probe...that price tag is a "bending over" if there ever was one.

Evil attorney, when I click your link on the Porsche patent I get a "forbidden" screen, yet am properly logged onto the GM Volt site. Ideas? I'm interested.

Sorry, I closed down my EV patent related website to which that link goes. It was way too much work for me keep up with and not enough interest.
