Hi i was wondering how efficiënt u drive with ur mx-30. What are the real overall numbers (I understand all the different situations from different drivers from different countries)?

To start with: 15,4Kwh/100km was my best effort, 100 kmpu cruise control, 25 degrees celcius Netherlands, flat tarmac, no wind over 70km distance.

Overall efficiency 15.7Kwh/100km after 7 months 13000km.

Real Summer range 20-30 dgrs celcius: 200km max.
Real winter range -5+7170km max.

I'm logging all consumption of my MX-30 since I bought it :
  • South of France with 30/35°C : combined range is a bit below 15 kWh/100km average over the June month.
  • Worst in winter is 19,1kWh/100km over January with an average minimum of 4°C.

After the novelty of the thing wore off, my driving style settled into a pattern. Always set the recuperation to one left paddle up and drive with anticipation of what is ahead such that I very rarely touch the brake in normal driving. Accelerate gently, unless I need otherwise, and keep highway speed nearer 65mph than 70mph most of the time (though the quiet smooth nature of the little beast means that i occasionally run it well past 70). Also, use techniques like accepting some speed reduction on long hills: letting 10mph gently ebb away as you climb saves a lot of power and the speed is recovered in seconds once you get to the top. As to efficiency, I decided to reset only with the change of clocks. The result, winter average was 3.4m/kWhr (18.3kWhr/100) and both summer 21 and 22 so far average 4.3m/kWhr (14.5). That is now absolutely repeatable including 260 miles driven in the last 2 days. That included 60% highway but was helped by the weather. 20C and some sunshine. Set the HVAC to facial vent only and switch everything else off! The natural airflow at 65mph is just right. (By the way, the trip also included my fastest ever charge taking 21.16kWhr for 26 to 95% SOC in 40.7 minutes. Yes, an average of 31.19kW! It was still drawing 22 kW at 87% charged! Couldn't repeat it on the way back though as a lesser charge took 50 minutes)

So u do fast loading past 80%?
I only use fast loading between 10-65% because after 65% the loading speed drops like a steep hill. 40 minutes is very promising!

15 is very decent 👍 and living in south of france too 😉

I charge what I need, particularly as fast public charging costs more than twice as much as at home. 65% is no use if you are 93 miles from home with 70% of it motorway. In fact, I never planned to charge to 95% as I only needed 80 but by the time I got back to the car from buying a cup of tea, the SOC had shot up to 77% (which seemed no time at all) and was still going like a train at 33kW. I charged to 95% as I was fascinated to see what would happen. It is all about battery temperature of course and i suspect that, by chance, the battery was at or near optimum as the charge even comfortably beat the Mazda spec of 20 to 80 in 36 minutes. I stopped after last 50 miles being motorway driving and the temperature gauge showed slightly over mid point with ambient of 21C. Coming back, the much slower charge started with the temperature a couple of mm below mid point on the scale and ambient 17C.

Yesterday i had the same experience, full power loading at 98%!!!! But an hour later at tesla’s fastloading it got slow again at 80%. The batteries were at 3/4 of its temperature scale on the dash.

Yesterday the mx-30 had a much faster and prolonged load beyond 80% until 98% at a 60kw max loader than the tesla’s 250kw. At tesla it quit fastloading at 80%. Temperature was at 3/4 scale for both sessions. Both load at mx-30 max 35kw capacity.

We have currently 12.9 on display, we did reset six weeks ago after winter. But I think the number is unrealistic for whatever reason. At full charge we get 210 km range now.

By the way I try now the new method for efficiency, and so far it works in conditions of normal traffic /not trraffic jams requiring a lot of drivers reactions). I try to drive with the LEAST setting of recuperation, and use recuperation only approaching the turns, releasing again during the turn. I started to test the method after interesting article about driving efficiency, lets see what is the results!

Same here Jan, highway cruisecontrol, mountain up and flat surface least recuperation, mountain down recuperation according wanted speed.
