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.
