Range and efficiency tables improvement

It’s now easier to compare range and efficiency of many electric cars.

 

Given the major success of the old Range and efficiency table, I decided to make it better and you can find it at the top menu navigation bar.

The tables I make now are no longer still images, instead they are flexible and can now be searched and sorted very easily. The way they are now also make the task of updating them a lot faster.

My main goal is to help potential electric car buyers choose an EV. Beside range and efficiency, what do you think it would help potential buyers the most? Price comparison or other?

 

Back to the topic.

 

We now have two separated tables for range and efficiency and one with both categories.

(1) Both South Korean and the EPA test cycles are very similar. However, at the moment the EPA rates aren’t available yet.

 

I’m considering the possibility of adding new tables with NEDC figures, however considering that this test cycle isn’t realistic and will soon be replaced by WLTP, it might be a waste of time.

 

Let me know what you think about the new flexible tables. Do you like them or do you prefer the old simpler image version? What new comparison tables would you like to see introduced?

More than natural resources, are wasted human resources that bothers me the most. That’s why I’m a strong advocate of a society based on cooperation, not competition, that helps every individual to reach his full potential so that he can contribute back to society. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”.

    Great work, Pedro.

    Now thats better any chance you could add the Renault Zoe as I drive a Zoe-i Q210 and I now have a Zoe-i Q40 on order.

    It would be nice to see how Europes best selling BEV compares.

  3. Alnair says:

    Well done Pedro.

    NEDC is not realistic but is comparable. So a NEDC table would be interesting.

    Also it would be interesting for those cars than have both NEDC and EPA to know if the relationship between them is linear and if we can assume a factor conversion from NEDC to EPA. (with a reasonable degree of error)

    Thanks guys for the comments and suggestions.

    I’ll add a separated table with NEDC figures.
