Very nice !

I can't get over 60 EV miles per charge.

How did you get that ??
Have you actually driven 72 miles on a charge ??

We have driven 65 miles when 65 was indicated as the EV range. Yesterday the range was 70 and we only drove 30 of the miles and then recharged and it came up 72 this morning. Fortunately we live in flat Central Florida and puttsing around 30 to 50 mph And conservative driving get you good range.

Thanks for the screen shot of your Honda Link app to prove to others that it is possible to get more than the "average" 47 miles per charge ?
Must be warm in FL ?
No heater and no climate control used to get that high charge number ?
I assume you use the regen paddles, drive in ECON mode, and city speeds ?

In Southern California I have been getting above average charge miles - around 60 miles per charge but others have scoffed at me because they are in cold climates and can't get even close to the average.

So it's possible in the middle of winter to get WAY OVER the average miles per charge!

That's amazing! The most I've been able to get is in the 45~50 miles for EV range. Please! Tell us your secrets

I've managed to get insane numbers on my combined range (full tank and charge) though!

We're finally up to 60-70F daytime temps, and I'm just now seeing 50 miles EV range in my week and a half old Clarity. I'd love to see 72 miles of EV range.

No real secrets. Mostly in town driving 15-40 miles a trip but have max out 68 when range said 68. I drive like I do not have to get there. Always in eco and coast/regen a lot. Fortunately we live in a relatively flat area of central Florida and winter temps are wonderful. Rarely drive at night so no extra lights. No heat or AC for the 68-72 range we have been getting for the past two months. When those are used numbers go down.
