The comparison here is between charging the battery using esave while driving vs charging the battery to run the air conditioner while the car is parked to keep it cool inside. I think esave would be more efficient because you can use regen to help charge the battery while driving.
Curious as to why you were running in esave mode. I have never tried it but I think you would still have air conditioning
during remote start when the battery is <1%. It would start the ICE, I would think.
Yes. I think you are right. It’s is calculating mpge when running full electric . The way you can tell is when you stop moving, there is still some electric energy being used and your mpg(e) starts to drop.
Some progress with my 4xe Rubicon order placed on nov 13. Jeff from Jeep Support gave an ETA of May 11-25. My dealer reported the vehicle was in Washington State. Next stop should be Spokane and then on to Kellog Idaho to the dealer. It’s getting close.
I think your numbers are not correct.
The base price for the 4xe of $53190 is after the price increase. My sticker for the 4xe rubicon on the order I placed in Nov shows the original base msrp of $51695.
The base price for a gas only rubicon from the Jeep web site is $43970 not $42475
Yes. I agree that would be useful to know. Its easy to find out. Drive until the battery is <1%. Don't charge it back up. Drive some combination of city and highway. Record how many miles you drove and how much gasoline you used and compute your MPG. Try with max regen on and off. As soon as...
MPGe is essentially a measure of the efficiency of the electric drive train on a vehicle. They could easily of just called it MPKw-hr. It's only useful to compare with other vehicles with electric drive trains. Besides that it, is essentially meaningless.
There are two potential benefits of...
