Let's say the light just turns green and you have a long stretch of road in front of you with a speed limit of 40. Now some people (including Wayne) say to use just ev power to get up to about 15-18 mph then use the ICE after that point. I'm sure it is probably right, but I just need it properly explained to me. Because to me it seems like you always want to use the ICE whenever there is much of a load at all on the vehicle. Accelerating from stop definitely seems like it would be quite a load on the battery. Thanks in advance for the help and good discussion.
