So this morning I decided to do an experiment and drive in "L" like usual but in "sport" mode i.l.o. "normal" mode.

I was wondering what would use less of a charge:

A - my usual leisurely pace taking off from a light while keeping the green ball in the circle in "normal" mode and easing the car up to cruising speed

Or

B - a quick launch in "sport" mode to get me up to cruising speed quicker

Normally I use right around 4.0 kWh on my way to work, and this morning I used 4.5 kWh, so I guess that answers that question!
