Kind of hard to take 240 MPG highway rating when the top speed is only 31MPH. Highway speeds around here are 40MPH minimum. I do like the old VW micro bus look of it though.

I got 240 mpg the other day on my '08 - BIG RED.

Then the downhill ended after only a half mile, turned into an uphill, and my mileage "cratered"... ;)...! Back to 55 mpg or so.

I think the 30 MPH is on the "battery only" mode, but it's a City Center delivery van, which is what it's designed to do, & 30MPH is adequate for that, & I was envisaging it in London delivering steak & kidney pies or as a fish'n'chip door to door seller's transportation!!:yeahsmile:

The best mpg i have ever achieved is 85 miles on 2 quarts, average speed 34.2 mph.
Air temp around 25 deg, with a slight tailwind. I was pretty stuffed at the end. My bicycle carried two bottles of water, 2 banana's and one power bar.
