Just realized I can calculate the car's energy efficiency from these figures...

(10368 wh / 25 km) / 1.61 km/mi = 257.59 wh/mile

And that's based on charging. Discount the charging inefficiencies (as I believe is standard practice in talking about wh/mi), and it's better than that. I'm not sure what the charging efficiency is though.
