Just a bit of back ground info, ordered Feb 24, 2016, built April 6, delivered to dealership April 30. While unloading off the delivery truck the front bumper was damaged left and right front corners. Sent to local body shop and had new bumper installed and painted and finally delivered to us last night May 17th. What a journey!!! Just a regular LT, Heather gray with no options.

Charged it overnight with a Sun Country Highway EV40P charger and showed an estimated 83km in the morning. Drove it all day between 50kph-80kph and got 95.4km with 4 km still showing on the guess-o-meter. Holy crap!!!

What an amazing car!!!!

Tomorrow is the real test. I'll be taking it to work and have a 102km round trip, but 60km will be on the highway. I will report back tomorrow.

Had to break out the conversion calculator... For us in the USA 94.5km is 58.72 miles.

That's some good range!!!

Let us know as that sounds very promising... Also curious as to how the car does in range extender mode.

Made my round trip to work and back and a little extra. Went 106.2km and had 5km left on the guess-o-meter. Traffic was heavy coming home so I was averaging 40-70kph on the highway today.

Be grateful for the heavy traffic. At higher speeds you probably would have burned thru all the electrons!
