A quick report of a short trip I did today, which I find quite reassuring regarding consumption / winter driving.
All data in metric system, sorry (Switzerland)

143 kms
Altitude: going uphill from 400m (home) to 1300m (ski resort) and back.
Between 1 and 4°C, with wet roads, snowy roads, winter tires (19")
Twin Engine
v1.7
A bit of traffic, otherwise 100-120 km/h on motorway, 60-80 km/h on other roads.
Heating ON, set to 19°C, steering wheel heating ON
Left at 79% SoC, arrived at the ski resort at 54% did a quick charge up there but would have ended up at 41% back home apparently.
=> 25.5 kWh/100km

I'd say not bad for this kind of trip.

Looks like that converts to ~410 wh/mi … or 41.0 kWh/100mi for those in the USA trying to compare. Which seems pretty spot on! We did a ~300 mile journey yesterday almost all expressway driving in temps just above freezing and saw just marginally better usage than what you got here, on the al season tires 20” — thanks for sharing your experience!

Nice! Yep. That sounds pretty good! We’re averaging 22.2 kWh/100 km (~35 kWh/100 mi) in mixed freeway and rural roads mostly (very little city/stop/go) and average temps here in rural VIC Australia have been around 10-15C for most of that. Hoping it improves a bit in warmer summer temps as we did one drive on a warm ~22C day and it averaged closer to 20 kWh/100 km.

When it heats up and i do a short run down the shops the aircon kills mine, in the 5 mins it cools the car down perfectly and then i go shopping so the consumption per km is through the roof but the car is nice!!! on a trip not as much an issue because i precool it on the mains and once cold its good, will find out next week when i go to perth. btw even at the 41c days we have had not an issue with the AC :)
