Had for more than a few months now and for cruising around town within battery range, this car just cannot be any better (well apart from the MMCS but I'll let that one go...for now). Sure a Nissan leaf will have better mileage but not much space to carry anything. I haven't done a heck of long distance driving but when I do I am getting around 7L/100km, after the battery has depleted. This is using Adaptive Cruise Control and AirCond. during summer with 2 people in the car.
Until i read a post on these forums the other day I did not know you could turn Adaptive CC off and just use CC to increase fuel efficiency. However I really like Adaptive CC as I can relax a bit more when driving and not worry about slamming into the car in front of me as much.
I am disappointed that there is no fast charge socket on this car in Australia. Would it have cost them that much more to leave it in? Pretty much makes the few charging stations around here redundant as I'm not sitting in the cafe for 5 hours waiting for this thing to complete charging.
I am not sure that combining electric charge and fuel into one fuel efficiency is fair. When friend ask me "What's the fuel efficiency like?", I tell them, well when i drive around town under 35-50km it only costs me the electricity charging price (which is about half the cost of petrol). I may not use petrol for weeks. On the open road about 7L/100km in petrol. The 1.9L/100km that Mitsubishi states kind of needs to include the cost of electricity.
