Just discovered the ABRP forums, and wanted to share a trip I did back in the Spring to visit my son at college. I also wanted to see how it was road-tripping an EV, in this case my wife's BMW i3. I was thinking about getting an EV myself, which would make us an EV-only household. Even with the medium range i3, the Charlotte-to-Chapel Hill run--140 miles each way, wasn't bad at all Spoiler: I just traded-in our only ICE car left yesterday, to take delivery of a Tesla Model Y. If anyone is interested in seeing more, I recorded some videos and stitched them together, https://youtu.be/2jU-8JHB_Xk
Hi experts, really jazzed by the real-world usefulness of this app! Thank you! I just acquired an i3 with range extender. Not sure if range extender facet is missing because it's ICE or because of a lack of data. Seems like maximum range is by using Bimmercode to allow the initial segment to be run on gasoline at full 2.4 gallon to empty, maintaining maximum charge from there to finish a segment with battery. Assuming 40MPG on the range extender, that's about 100 additional miles front loaded to the range, or about 225-250 depending on efficiency. An i3 with unofficial mods like this is not standard and would confuse many users, so I am not sure it would be correct for it to be in the model selection. I tried to make a "custom car" in my own account, but that didn't seem possible either. Any thoughts on what the best solution here is? Thanks again, Brian
