DOING A NUMBER ON CONSUMPTION
WITH THE NUMBER of fully electric vehicles increasing, please do not continue to state fuel consumption in your Databank tables as 0.0, as this implies perpetual motion!
Keeping the consumption consistent with units of fuel per 100km simply means using kilowatt hours (kwh) per 100km. Using the example of the Nissan Leaf and the figures quoted in your May 2019 issue, the consumption would be 40kwh (stated capacity) divided by 270km (stated range) multiplied by 100 to bring it to 14.8kwh/100km.
This will help those considering an EV to calculate running costs as the price of a kwh is available from our electricity bills. Angus Henderson, Victoria Pt, Qld Good suggestion, Angus; one we’re happy to run with – Ed
