Drove from Ventura down to Hollywood on Friday. Santa Ana headwinds were gusting into the 40’s. This part of the drive usually uses 42-45% of battery capacity at 60-65mph. Even driving at 55, I used 65% over the same distance, showing 2.7 miles/kWh. Needed 45 minutes charging in Chatsworth to finish a trip normally within range. Good news is battery weight makes Fit EV more stable in crosswinds.
