The car's energy efficiency from the above figures...

(5100 wh / 24.8 km) / 1.61 km/mi = 127.7 wh/mile (EDIT: there's a big fat error in these calculations. See further down the thread to read where I realized it.)

And that's based on charging. And that's insanely efficient, compared to other EV figures I've seen. (Of course it represents my driving & avg speed of probably 20 km/h)
