Good Day for Niro PHEV EV range

For the 1st time today my 2019 Niro PHEV achieved 40 miles on Electric. I've had it since the beginning of May 2019 and this was the first time I actually got to the 40 mile mark on a single charge. Outdoor temp was 80 degrees and the roads weren't crowded at all and I don't know if it matters but had favorable winds. I suspect the long range today was more an effect of mild temperatures and uncrowded roads where you could take your time and extend your stops and starts.

I also found a public charger near where I drop off the kids for school. The charger is free and open to the community. Pretty cool that a business would provide that!

All in all a great day for economical driving.

Did you have the A/C on? If so, super impressive. Even if it was off, that's great. I've hit 34 with the A/C on, but would love to see closer to 40 on a regular basis.

I had a/c off and was able to drive economically because there wasn't much traffic at all. Usually I have to just go with the flow in traffic but today I was able to set my own pace.
