Backroad vary check – iX xDrive50 achieves 650km with 20km vary left!


Fairly real looking with OEM aero wheels and very best temps. My actual world vary over 16k miles is 210 miles within the winter with my 20” winter set (non-aero), 230-250 miles in common SoCal climate on my 22s (non-aero), and about 260-270 on my OEM aero 21s.

Actually relies on velocity, elevation, temps, wheels (aero or not)/tire setup, and wind

1. Pace: Many people in CA/NV/AZ/TX/UT/ID have velocity limits at 70-80mph which implies 85-95mph real looking site visitors speeds so we get much less vary. We get it that the Northeast is sluggish and also you get higher vary.

2. Elevation: You clearly lose vary occurring uphill drives (eg. Vegas-SLC) and get extra vary going downhill.

3. Temps: You lose 20-35% vary within the chilly (beneath 40F) and it’s worse in the event you run the warmers (seats @1%/hour and the blowing heater at 3-7%/hour)

4. Wheel/Tire setup: You lose 20% ish vary with out aero wheels. You lose 5-10% with wider tires or non-LRR/EV tires.

5. Wind: It’s a crapshoot however in the event you’re in opposition to it I’ve seen <1.7mi/kWh and if it’s a tailwind, you barely discover it.

You’re by no means going to make use of the “full” vary of your automotive. I’ve performed 100% to <2% at a charger however clearly not advisable. Efficient vary is 150 miles in winter and 200 miles non-winter between fees.
