    Picked up my PIP this afternoon. Took for a quick spin around town. Battery was fully charged the estimated EV range 13.1. The drive was 38 miles (80% city) and included two long relatively steep hills. Display estimated 98 mpg.

    Not bad for the first day. My daily commute is only 6 miles. On weekends the round trip mileage of 90% of our weekend errands are no more than 15 miles.

    I find the car to be relatively comfortable and very quiet.

    Best of luck. Don't get used to the 13 miles ev unless you drive very slow with no a/c on flat ground. But... The car is great. I love it. What are you coming from?

    More interested in the mpg than the estimated EV.
    Given most of our trips are <20 miles I am expecting to average >80 mpg.

    Time well tell!
