Cluster question

    Can someone please explain to me what this bar is actually measuring?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,830 ✭✭✭ 10-10-20

    Instantaneous power consumption in kW?

    Showing an average of 15.6kW/100km there on the right I think.

    My vote is for the instant kWh/100 km.

    With the light coloured line showing your average?

  • Registered Users Posts: 548 ✭✭✭ sh81722

    Right, both the line and the digits on the right seem very close to the each other (15.6 kWh/100 km). If the line or number follow the throttle closely that's the instant reading, right? And the "stationary" one is the average over certain past distance. The green bar seems to be just a fixed scale from 0-60 kWh/100 km. A real life consumption of 60 kWh/100 km does not make sense, certainly not for the instant consumption, nor for the average unless you just drove to the top of Mt. Everest after resetting it at the valley.

    Seen as the power meter needle is currently showing a very low reading both the bar and number are most likely both showing the average consumption. 15 and some kWh/100 km makes a lot of sense for many relatively frugal small to medium size EVs.

    Ah Jesus, was hoping ye'd tell me in lay man ( women) terms😂

    So basically my consumption of kW per km!!!

    I've set my kona to regen 3 and driving around city today for about 45 mins and didn't lose even 1 km of range! Epic.

    Or divide 100 by your kWh/100km gives you 100/15.6 = 6.4kms per kWh 🙂
