    That's much more reasonable than 27 odd kWh - if only the battery had that capacity....

    Close call today 74 miles covered. Got home just as dash changed to 1 bar. Left home thinking i was going to be doing 60 miles so drove economically but not slow until I realised still had to do 11 miles to get home and only 3 bars remaining. So with 1 bar remaining probably couĺd have done 78 miles in todays weather. Right, Im off to change my pants.

    78 miles is impressive - we might be going over 60 miles today, so no heater use for us

    I notice you added a 'descriptions' column. When I first got my Fluence I drew up a table that had similar and filled it out for every trip I did. This allowed me to get used to the way the car actually used energy when used differently. (I would approximate miles 'urban', 'fast roads', 'highway', and then the driving style 'saintly', 'moderate', etc..)

    It's a really good exercise I recommend everyone does.

    one question - does the iOn heat the battery before/during use, and does that mean it would make a difference when you charge up, i.e. if you drive off straight after a charge do you have a warmer, and thus more efficient, battery?

    We dont use the heater at all on any journey over 50 miles. We dont go over 55mph on those journeys either and drive as slowly as traffic allows. I think we acheived such good mileage yesterday because of weather and the fact I came to the car in the morning having fully charged and then unpluged and pluged back in for 45 minutes before we left. It possibly warmed the battery up or something.

    I'm pretty sure there is no active battery temperature management on the iON/C-Zero, though I do know the i-miev version has a remote that can be used to control charging and to preheat the car using the car's heater.
    Unfortunately the iON/C-Zero don't have that option as far as I know :-(
    We do similar to Mark with heater use - normally only allowed on our 40 or less mile journeys.

    I Think anyone looking at an imiev or one of its clones has to realise what it is. Its a basic ev to get you from A to B. They have a place for people who want to travel upto 60ish miles. The big attraction is they are available with low miles used at a bargain price. We love ours and in Cornwall can reach most places in the county. Which is why you see them all over the place down here.

    Another impressive result - is it getting warmer where you live?

    It's actually been a bit colder the last three days, Sat-Mon max/min were 9/3, 7/5 and 8/4. Before that the temperature had hit 10 or above every day except on (2 March).
