I partook in a Plasmaball Run - here's the yarn from The Driven Some extra pics...
Sample of data
Thankfully didn't need the slide rule
Recharge in Ravensthorpe - there were AEVA 32A 3P sockets, softened paired with Tesla Destination chargers. Used a borrow SETEC DC charger box, which averaged 14.5kW power. Trip recharge time was equivalent to travel time so to dodge roos we did it over two days each way, to also minimise conflict with access to charge points with the Renault Zoe and Hyundai Kona and unknown Tesla drivers.
Hi ravolt , I'm confused, is that photo from constant 95kph and 100kph comparing identical stretch of road? The difference is massive at 15.5 and 18.9 respectively!
Another thing. Why mph is the main display? This is not Australian model then?? (didn't read the title... )
Yep, UK version, no Pro-Pilot. Indicators on left side and foot park brake.
The 100kph is the return journey leaving Esperance rising from the coastal plain to the old sea floor. Long ascent and hills. The 95kph was a trip from Esperance to Cape le Grande National Park, essentially level. I say allow 18.5kWh/100km for country travelling with NO air-conditioning.

Made me more impressed with Hyundai's attempt with the Kona (and especially Ioniq). Such a great efficiency for a 'normal' looking car!
Most car manufacturers just simply add bigger batteries, efficiency is 2nd priority at best.
2nd hand Ioniq is my plan-B car if the battery replacement plan doesn't go ahead. Fast charging capability (coupled with infrastructure) is far more important than battery size, in my opinion. AUstralia is definitely not there yet.
