Hi all. Have the car (SR) for almost a year now so have been through the hot and cold weather. I fully understand that the range differs a fair bit between temperature. So off the guessometer if I get 4miles / kWh in summer, I am not surprised to get 3 or less in winter. I get that.
However it bugs me that the miles/kWh on a trip does not match the range or the distance i have travelled. For example, this morning I charged to 100% , reset the trip computer . Travelled 60 miles, achieving 4 miles / kWh according to the computer, which should equate to 15kwh used and on a 50kwh battery I worked it out as 33.33% . However when I arrived, the 60 mile tried has used 42% .
Am I missing something ? Or is it just me? I thought I get higher and lower miles/kWh reading according to temperature but not a same reading but I need to factor it in myself.
WLTP as 'guessometer' (most EVs, really); good description. Based in the Netherlands, this database may be of use, much ongoing work being done here about this & other common EV issues: EV Database
About EV Database
Our main goal is to accelerate the adoption of sustainable transport by maintaining an easily accessible database with all data regarding electric vehicles. Electric vehicles, in combination with autonomous driving, will be one of the most relevant revolutions in the automotive industry. Autonomous electric vehicles will one day be the norm. However, there are quite a few misunderstandings and myths surrounding the electric vehicle. A lot of questions with regards to charging, range and the daily driving of an EV still remain. Information on these topics is stored in the EV Database to objectively anwer as much of these questions as possible.
EVDB is completely independent: it is not funded or subsidized in any way. Revenue is currently only generated by placing as few ads as possible to cover running costs. If you're running an Adblocker and like what we do, please consider whitelisting the EV Database. We do not collect any user data and only track basic anonymous user behaviour to improve the database.
The EV Database aims to gather as much real-world data as possible. A lot of information in the car industry is often not applicable in practice, as these are often based on theoretical data gathered in laboratories. To avoid misunderstandings, the EV Database shows the official data in addition to the real-world data.
So in realtion to the MG ZS EV standard range specifically, their data on range shows:
Real Range Estimation between 185 - 405 km
|City - Cold Weather *||275 km|
|Highway - Cold Weather *||185 km|
|Combined - Cold Weather *||225 km|
|City - Mild Weather *||405 km|
|Highway - Mild Weather *||240 km|
|Combined - Mild Weather *||305 km|
Indication of real-world range in several situations. Cold weather: 'worst-case' based on -10°C and use of heating. Mild weather: 'best-case' based on 23°C and no use of A/C. For 'Highway' figures a constant speed of 110 km/h is assumed. The actual range will depend on speed, style of driving, weather and route conditions.
All details and specs of the MG ZS EV Standard Range (2021). Compare price, lease, real-world range and consumption of every electric vehicle.
