Driving Like I Always Do

Today I did 43 miles round trip and ended up with 63% left from a 100% charge. I was driving like I normally do, not too slow and accelerate with fun at times, half the route included 15 miles by highway at just over 70mph plus full lights and wipers on.

I definitely attribute the ability to retain power from the regen braking...I really pay attention to it and regen whenever I can (as long as it is safe) really makes a difference in stretching out those miles. I am also getting up to speed a little more quickly rather then slowly. Seems just like a gas car, getting to that speed limit in a reasonable amount of time vs. forever or super quick is more efficient.
