    Hello,

    Does anyone have any experience or data for range (wh/mile) in really hot desert environments? Specifically operating in Abu Dhabi, where it's 50 degrees Celsius, in the sun? Many thanks,

    Mark

    It has been that hot lately in Arizona, so maybe someone from there has some recent data.

    The hottest I have experienced in my short time of ownership was earlier this week, but it was only about 38 degrees C. I averaged 355 wh/mi in stop and go rush hour traffic.

    I have a P85D and reside in Las Vegas, we do not get up to 50 C, prob highest around 46. I actually do not notice that big of a range difference, average around 320 where normally it is around 300. This is of course with the AC blasting. I notice a much bigger loss in range when it is very cold outside.

    Hope this helps
