Re: Super ECO mode - an idea..

Actually besides Newtons law the efficiency of the I-Pace's motors are better at higher load. So theoretically fast acceleration is most efficent. Theoretically.. That could be, but the battery internal resistance will probably will higher, same for the cabling, there will be more wheel slip at hig...

Re: Super ECO mode - an idea..

It seems my I-pace defies Newtonian physics and disagrees with above. I made a small test drive twice that included 2x getting on and off the highway. The first run I accelerate fast till 110km/h (once from standstill and other from approx 55km/h) and the second run I accelerated more gently. Both ...

Re: Journal of Energy Storage studies EV owner’s manuals, compiles best practices for batteries

Just read the article.

Not much of a 'research study' in my opinion. Just reading through some car manuals and making notes on the points concerning battery management and tips would yield the same results.

Re: Does I Pace battery hold charge for two weeks or more?

From limited personal experience, I can only confirm what has been said above.

I haven't left the I-Pace for long periods yet but from what I did experience, there was no phantom drain.

What did you think the I-Pace is?

It's definately not a Tesla... :lol:

Re: Super ECO mode - an idea..

They already have - it is called Low Power Mode (LPM) and it switches off all screens except the display behind steering wheel, switches off infotainment system (navigation keeps running), switches off climate control and to my knowledge seriously reduces the available power. Just got home from wor...

Re: Super ECO mode - an idea..

Over the past year pre and post H264 I generally get better range in dynamic mode than either comfort or eco. Whatever mode you are in the amount of power you use is down to your inputs in both accelerating and braking and of course drag, load, topography and all the other standard limiting factors...

Re: Super ECO mode - an idea..

Doesn't that depend on the gearing? Which may be why the Taycan has an extra gear .... My previous XKR, which had 503bhp, couldn't do 155mph in first gear. Good question!! Let have a look at that! According to the info I have the motors run at 13.000 rpm max. The fixed gear ratio is 9.06, which mea...

Re: Super ECO mode - an idea..

Is that true - will my consumption be identical if I slowly accelerate onto the highway or when I floor it and exceed highway max speed even before getting on it. For sure your ECO score will be much lower. To my understanding as well as my experience - fast(er) acceleration is less efficient than ...

Re: Super ECO mode - an idea..

”It does not matter if you do it in 4 seconds or in 40 seconds.“ It matters to me. :D :lol: of course it does. At times... But what if acceleration in Super-ECO mode would drop from the official 0-60 in 4.8 seconds to 7.0 seconds. You would still be faster than 99% of all other cars out there. Ther...

Super ECO mode - an idea..

If there is one thing that is obvious with the I-Pace it must be that it's consumption is higher than a lot of other EV's. Of course, the I-Pace is a large car with a relatively high Cd-value and large frontal surface. It also has two powerful motors which make it a much faster proposition than cars...
