    Most of our mileage is short trips (10-20 miles) and we are getting, in 3 deg temperature (therefore, accounting for heating the car interior and battery from cold) about 115 miles. This is honest-to-goodness real world, without trying.

    We did a motorway cruise (well, about 75% of the trip was) in similarly cold weather, and that went up to about 125 - calculated by adding the trip distance (which was 85) on to the estimated remaining (40). Apparently this car excels at faster running because of its low drag co-efficient.

    I haven't had it long enough to comment on warmer conditions, but another member (who drives some crazy distances) posted his summer experiences here: My Travels with Ioniq. Realworld feedback where he was able to get over 5 miles per unit.

    On the return trip, after a full charge from a 13a socket at destination overnight, we did a minor detour for some shopping, and then popped in to a free rapid charger that's 9 miles from home. Spent 35 minutes in another nearby shop whilst getting it back up to 94% full (for free) and then went home where we filled it up (at domestic cost) the rest of the way. So, close to zero fuel cost for the trip. THAT is one reason why to drive an EV.

    What on earth were you doing spending 35 minutes in a shop, or was a woman involved in this trip?

    ;)

    Joking aside, which supermarkets allow you to top up your ICE car with free fuel while you shop?

    Looking at the amount of DriveOffs they get at the Local Asda I think some of the locals think the Petrol is free here...
