I have not done a max range test yet. I have done a 45 mile round trip with full heat and I had no diminish in power.

Right now I am estimating 60 miles in winter and 77 miles in the summer to 80% DoD. I'm going to work on a few things to improve the efficiency. My goal is to get over 80 miles per charge and there are a number of things I can do. I need to adjust the camber in one wheel which should help and I'm thinking about grill blocks and higher tire pressure.
