Be interesting to see if you keep driving in an economy manner or let loose. Many ev owners I speak to who have capacity to spare talk about about 100% torque at 0 rpm, chirping tires, etc. Those with range issues talk about hypermiling.

Having a leaf as a rental I did both and being more aggressive really ate into the range est of the dash. Likewise being conservative gave me triple digits for range.

I know for many evs they either do not have regen braking or the regen is wasted as a surface charge if the vehicle is equipped with lead acid batteries. I believe with the leaf its able to take it all in and allow you to successfully reuse it on your next launch.
