Well I did my first 150 mile family road trip today. 12C in the UK with heavy headwinds and lots of rain.

Car was fully loaded with four people and a lot of luggage.

37.7kWh per 100 miles at an average of 49 MPH. Mainly A-roads, dual carriageway and some motorway. Drove at 70mph quite a bit.

BP CCS 50kW for a rapid top-up enroute just to be safe

The car was only recalled on Thursday for the replacement inverter and software upgrade. It was faultless and brilliant.

I will now relax about range. I’m sure it will do 220/240 miles in better conditions.

Postscript to be my good day. I stupidly forgot to bring the right cable, so only had the 3-pin and Polestar OEM (16A) charging cables. The house where we are staying has a Rolec charger and, ta-daa, it didn’t work.

So I charged from 60% SoC to 90% overnight on the 3-pin, no problem.

The moral of the story, the lunch stop with the 50kW charger top-up yesterday saved my bacon - or I’d still be charging all day today.

Cable should have worked at half speed, so more likely the Rolec needs an update. Guessing you have non-PP getting that efficiency? Great colour choice as well 😉
Yes, probably the Rolec...
Car is a PP, so efficiency quite good I think? Reckon we had 280-300kgs of people + luggage.
30-40mph SW head winds as well.

Yeah, 68 miles, full car, wind and rain, 37ish is definitely good. I've been getting around or just under 40. 12c might have helped you as it's been colder recently!
