Re: How to lower kwh

Just a small clarification, the Spark does have blended brakes where the first portion of the brake range is regen and the end is mechanical. That said, " The Brake Pads only start working when the regen is maxed at 60kW. " is incorrect. The mechanical brakes will engage as soon as you press the bra...

It seems they were speaking of differences between the EV 2014 2015 and 2016, not ICE versus EV models

Re: Battery degredation

In my experience it accounts for both just fine.

Re: Commuting 160 miles in a Spark EV

Given the wide range of miles, do you have the corresponding period for each.
This may help us weight miles versus time as impact on degradation.

Re: Commuting 160 miles in a Spark EV

The maths work out to 6.5 mi/kWh. That is quite conservative driving, Good for her! Just keep in mind as was mentioned before that she will be doing quite a lot of miles per year (38,000 from your commute numbers), and you will loose capacity overtime.

If I assume a nominal usable capacity of 19 kWh that means t...
