    Welcome to the future...

    First Look: Honda EV-Ster | TheDetroitBureau.com


    Claiming 100 miles range from a 10 kWh battery. Is it made from unobtainium?


    Perhaps he should take his head out of his ass and come to this forum...

    Nissan Leaf 24kWh, 5 seats = 100 miles. Honda EVster 10 kWh, 2 seats = 100 miles. Model S 85kWh, 7 seats = 300 miles. Conclusion: you need 5kWh to move 1 seat 100 miles. :tongue:

    I think I'm going to use my new meter on their claimed range...

    But your mocking legend is on the mode selector, not the readout.
    So, I think you have some pre-conceived notions of what will happen.
    We can only guess which outcome you will pick.

    You need a switch to designate the maker's name.

    If the car gets made, it could be a Fluke!

    Used to work in Fluke Electronics. They make fantastic meters.

    More EV info in this Honda press release. 290 Wh/mi. 123 mi range. Full charge in 3 hr. Therefore about 36 kWh used, and almost 12 kW charger.

    GSP

    PS. I like how the achieved the "highest electrical consumption in the world." They need to get off using km/L, and think in L/100km, or just transition to kWh/100km!

    Hondas new goal is best fuel economy in every category within three years

    6. A compact, high efficiency electric powertrain for EVs.

    Thanks to the high efficiency coaxial motor, low-friction gearbox and electric servo brake system, the system realizes the highest electrical consumption capability in the world*1, meeting the required AC consumption rate of 29kWh/100mile(116MPGe) as set forth by the United States.

    A traveling distance of 123 miles*2(LA-4mode: unadjusted) or 210km*2(JC08 mode) was achieved thanks to the mounting of a high capacity lithium-ion battery.
    When using the 240V U.S. electric source, a full charge takes less than 3 hours. (From the time a low-charge signal is lit till full charge)

    By offering three driving modes (SPORT, NORMAL, ECON), the driver can freely select from a number of options to meet the needs of various driving styles such as power-saving or sporty drive.
