With the wicked inefficient auto tranny, doing 40-45 MPH with lots of hills and lead sled I would have about 210 wh/mi in the summer and 270 wh/mi in the winter from the wall.

I'm expecting a huge boost in fun because of the increased voltage and 200 lbs less weight. Also nice stiff batteries will be nice, I can't wait use the Zilla and lay down some rubber!
