Bolt EV and Battery
My 130k mile car with the new battery 50k miles ago: Battery screen shows 8 green bars (40%) Hill top reserve is around 88% 88%-40% = 48% of battery used today Energy screen says I used 28.8 kWh driving 133 miles. 28.8 kWh / 48% = 60 kWh battery. I've done this a few times and it's been 59, my rounding error might get it to 60 today. GOM is just how aggressive the last 50 miles were. 80mph = 2 mi/kWh = 160 mile range 60mph = 4 mi/kWh = 240 mile range 40mph = 6 mi/kWh = 360 mile range Try to not go lower than 40 miles left. There is no reserve. No running on fumes.
