Hi. We've got one on order in New Zealand. The big question we all have is: How's the real range???
We did a “long distance” test drive yesterday with the 2023 Solterra with the Odometer reading at 600 miles (966km). It was 55°F (12.8°C). We had the cabin temperature at 68°F (20°C) and everything set to ECO; the average speed was 70MPH (113kph) with two adult passengers. We only charge the car to 90%.
Our trip was to mark the halfway point and to familiarize ourselves with the navigation and charging. The halfway point (more like 45% point so I could make it home) for this trip was 62 miles (100km).
I’m sure I’m overlooking some variables. I’d provide the kWh, but I didn’t record them.
I’m planning to send out a post on the Solterra navigation system.
