Long journey by electric car in the winter, is it possible? This morning we have released seven cars and seven drivers on a 75 km long trip around Lake Vättern. Follow the drivers and their electric cars here.
In the early hours of the morning, it’s time to leave the editorial office’s warm and safe garage with fully charged batteries. Outside they are ice and cold, the question is who has to charge first.
Audi e-tron Sportback (John Eriksson)
“Is now just north of Norrköping. There is pig content on the E4! I noticed it when I passed an accident very slowly. Then I also noticed that the e-tron is rear-wheel drive when you drive carefully, so it is not quattro all the time. But I “I think I have a chance not to charge at Mantorp but go directly to Gränna. The current average is 24.4 kWh / 100 km.”
John Argelander has for once left his executive chair at the editorial office. He has long looked forward to traveling to Mantorp in a Kia e-Niro and fully enjoys the journey.
Kia e-Niro (John Argelander)
“I have just passed Mantorp, where I charged for a quarter of an hour. Went from 32 to 46 percent on the battery. I now average 21.0 kWh / 100 km. The car runs fine, it is warm and lovely in the cabin. Of course it is noticeable that it’s slippery, but now it’s bare ground. “
Porsche Taycan 4S (Patrik Lundin)
“I’m a quarter of an hour south of Nyköping and it’s quite snowy here. The navigation was messy at first when it was offline, but it has been resolved. It’s lucky to find it on the E4 is -3 degrees outside but warm and good in the car. “
Renault Zoe (Alrik Söderlind)
“I’m trying to charge in Mjölby. We have tried two chargers but none work so there is a bit of chaos. The navigation has also locked. And now the cable is stuck so I can not get out of here. Gah, I have to call back! The average consumption is 26.8 kWh / 100 km. “
Alrik’s range anxiety is not improved by the charging panic that occurs when all chargers are locked.
Tesla Model 3 (Mikael Johnsson)
“I just passed Nyköping, and I have not noticed that it is slippery. But I am on my guard. My problem is the heat, it is only 11 degrees in the cabin despite 25 degrees on the air conditioner. I average 16.6 kWh / 100 km “It’s good. But I want heat!”
Volkswagen ID.3 (Elias Medelberg)
“Is exactly 7.5 km from Mantorp where I will charge. The car is running well, I will probably manage on three charges, right now the average is 20.8 kWh / 100 km. The heat works and I am satisfied.”
Volvo XC40 Recharge (Wiggo Björck)
“I’m charging in Mantorp. The trip computer and navigation have been correct and we arrived with 21 percent in the battery, just as promised. I have averaged 25.9 kWh / 100 km. The car runs as safely as possible.”
