I have a little data to share about the range I observed with my extended range battery (platinum trim) truck when both distance and elevation climbs are involved.
The trip is 167 miles one way where the first 110 miles are relatively flat (bay area to Sierra Nevada foothills) and the final 57 mile climb from about 200’ to 6300’ elevation.
We had about 500lbs of people and cargo. Truck was charged to 100%.
The first 110 miles were driven relatively conservatively, although there were plenty stretches of 75mph. I averaged 2.2mi/kwh until the climb began.
During the climb I averaged 1.1mi/kwh. I reached my destination with “67 miles” of range remaining.
So final numbers were 167miles driven one way, complete trip avg 1.9 mi/kwh, 6200’ elevation climb est. 95% energy to driving. About 67 miles remaining range.
