Ran some errands this afternoon - 317.4 miles of range.
Congested freeways everywhere yielded only 36 mph average speed, peak speed held to 65 mph, but traffic kept that from happening much.
123.8 miles used 39% of the charge at 72°F.
Jaguar Remote claims 3.77 miles per kWh, which would be 319 miles using 84.7 kWh.
But all that stop and go stuff chews up the time. Still pretty good for 'City' range. I ran it in Battery Saver mode, low regen, no creep, and was careful to limit the amount of regen and braking. This ended up being a huge loop from Riverside County (Norco), down the 91 fwy, to the 55 to Newport Beach. Took PCH up north until I wanted to shoot myself from the insane traffic, took Goldenwest east to the 405 North which became a parking lot, so I took 710 towards Pasadena, which backed up. Ended up on 60 headed East, to the 71 fwy which was finally some clear driving back into Norco. If I could have found a open freeway, I would have turned around at 45% remaining, but I got nowhere near that.
My other test failed. I installed a Dashcam/Digital Rearview Mirror. This attaches to the front of the existing mirror, and you swipe your finger to change from front to rear, or elevation of the camera view. It could be turned off to use as a standard mirror. It was functional, but the surface 'ghosts' the interior badly, you see both the interior of the vehicle and the digital image at near equal intensity. I loved how much area I could see behind me, but the reflection was really bad. It also has the Pulse Width Modulation effect on some headlights, it makes them appear to flicker.
I might play with it some more. The recording feature was enough to keep it and possibly customize it.
