45e fuel consumption

Hi!

I'm thinking of ordering a 45e. Can anyone share their experience of the fuel consumption on long distance driving without support from battery.

When driving on highway I usually cruise in a speed around 135 km/h or 82 mph.

Yes I can. I am driving to the alps right now. I am at 11 l/100 km 300 km after fueling in Luxemburg. Drove 2.5 km electric.

Driving through France and Switzerland. Between 120 and 140 km/h in adaptive.

Before that my last fuel was 28/12 and I had 3,8 l/100 km. Did 2000 km. 1200 km pure electric.

The general average fuel consumption is around 10 l / 100 km driving on the ICE

What speed were you driving? I have a consumption on highways of around 12l/100km at 140kph.
20" with winter tires (305 in the back)

Average of around 7.5l/100km combined, more or less 40% electric

My wife was driving. The part I did was more around 12 L 😜

Just charged the battery from 50 to 100% to be fully charged at the station

In my experience driving the ICE is around 10 liter. So if 40% is electric I would be around 6 liters.

Winter speed limits and snow tires drop my highway speed to around 115 km/h and at that speed I'm getting a relatively low consumption of 8.0 l/100km. 135 km/h of the same would be just over 10 l.

Thanks guys!

Not too far from my current 40d then. Sounds promising.

That is quite good. But with my 20" 305 winter tires I really struggle to drop below 12l on highways when driving 140.

since last fill up i did more or less 50% electric I get around 6l, so that does add up.

I am curious to see what the change to summer tires will do.

The 140 speed is the killer here. If you stay below 130 it will drop to about 10.5

Must try that, coming from a 530d and being used to driving even slightly faster from time to time, I am still adjusting a bit

Around the city I drive mostly electric so the average is about 2 liters / 100 km (speed 50 km/h) but on long trips I get around 11 liters / 100 km (speed 140 km/h or above)

M50d driving not economical at all, for 9000km it is 9.8. Mostly motorway and highway (not much city driving). But on highway, usualy not less the 160 km/h.
