Max Speed Changing

Recommended Posts

Description: If I set max speed to, say, 75 (mph) and then change the car model to compare how different cars would handle the route, the max speed changes to a different number (often to 93 mph.
Link to Plan: If the bug is in finding a route, please copy the plan link here (found under "Share").  
Replication Steps:

  3. If applicable
Remember, the more detail you can provide in your bug report, the faster we can fix it!

Sounds like it's being reset to the default max speed for each vehicle, which is intended behavior (we track the max actual speed, like the Bolt is hard-locked to 93mph, and thus can't drive any faster even if you want to).

Hmm, thanks, but I'm not sure that is it because it happens when I plan a route with an i3 120 Ah, set the max speed I want to travel at to 75mph, and then change the car to a Model 3 SR to compare how much time would be saved. Everything else stays the same, but the max speeds changes to 93mph (obvs. the Model 3 can go much faster than that).

As Jason says, this is intentional. Some EVs are just not made to drive fast so we introduced this "recommended max speed" as part of the car models.

Ah, okay, maybe I'm misunderstanding the purpose of the max speed setting then. I thought the purpose was so that you could say you want to do, for eg, 100% of the speed limit, but then restrict the max speed to something less than 100% of the speed limit. For example, in the UK, I might want to drive at 100% of the speed limit (where possible) on all roads except motorways where the limit is 70mph. So I might want to tell ABRP that I intend to drive at the 60mph limit on single lane country roads (to prevent queues of traffic building up behind me), but then that I don't intend to go over 65mph on motoways, where faster cars can easily overtake, despite the 100% speed being 70mph.

My preference would be for settings like max speed to not change without the user actually changing it themselves. My preference would be that the only parameter that automatically changes when the car model is changed is the reference consumption.
