We have just bought a new mini camper van for the summer season
It was bought in Stavanger and driven to Bergen. The distance is approximately 190km.
|I was at the car dealer at 08:15 in the morning and signed the papers. Nice new addition to our electric camper van customers. Driving range fully charged ca. 250km. I said to the sales person that I would use approximately the same distance to Bergen as battery distance. He was reluctant due to many up and down small hills between Stavanger and Bergen with two ferry crossings.|
|I started at the car dealer setting trip meter to zero. The electric mini camper was charged at 251km. Trip meter was reset to zero. The journey to Bergen started.|
|When I arrived at Bergen 4,75 hour later I had been driving 188km distance. I used 208km battery distance. This gives a ratio 208/188=1,106.|
This means I am using 1,1km battery distance to drive 1km road distance. I had left 48km battery distance. Approximately 50km is sufficient in most case to have enough to drive to the nearest charging station along a planned route.
