    Excellent choice. Most of the fuel economy will return as they break in.

    Bye Bye over 30 miles EV in Houston summer.
    Despite car shows 31-33 Ev range I can only get 27-29 in 100 degF humid weather here in Houston.
    and... if I decide to go 60+ the ev range goes down to 25-27 miles EV (btw car still estimates above 30 ev range)
    The HVAC takes heavy toll in those conditions. Strangely enough I noticed that Ppre-conditioning of the car b4 departure while still plugged in doesn't help. It drains the battery and after pre-conditioning the cal resumes charging which takes too long time ( even with Level2 charger) to take benefit of pre-conditioning ev range wise. In lower temps (80-90F) it worked, but now (90-100F) it gives only more comfort on departure, but no EV range gain.
    I guess I need to take 10-15% off the estimated EV range to plan my EV only trips.

    Depends on where in California you live, you may find out about this phenomenon in the coming years. :eek:;)

    California projected to get wetter through this century

    We need it badly... SoCal got much less than NorCal this past winter... so I'll accept a hit on EV/mpg... a little that is :cool::cool:

    I ended up stretching it to 37.3 before the ICE kicked in on the way home. Driving like a half dead crippled snail. ;)
