Ok, let’s make a possible scenario. The previous owner of the car was not too concerned with economy. He drove at 80mph on the highway, made jackrabbit starts in town and really didn’t get good mileage. Now, the computer in the car has been “taught” according to the way he drove the car. And the computer says that according to the way he
drove the car it will have a range of about 270 miles. But now you, the new owner, drive it differently. You drive 65mph on the highway, don’t use the cabin heat or AC overly much, make nice slow and easy acceleration in town, anticipate stops and allow the car to slowly decelerate to make the most advantage of the regenerative braking. The computer in the car now says, is this really true? I’m not 100% convinced yet. So as you continue to drive it in a conservative manner the computer will gradually recalculate the estimated range. Remember, too, that it is an estimated
range and it’s based upon past driving habits. Just to whet your appetite, here’s what I got on a almost new Clarity shortly after I purchased it. I’m pretty sure it can do even better than that too. So let’s give it a little time and see what you can get yours to do.
