I need to drive 60 miles round trip. There is no 120V outlet or "free" charging station at my work place. That's why I am a little concerned about the budgeted miles showing in the dashboard.
At 32 degrees 60 miles is cutting it close. Also, if you are home charging @ 120v then it will take all night to recharge the battery. Phoenix can get very cold. The ideal scenerio is to find some way to charge at work. Other workarounds are to charge the car in the morning with the heater on 68 degrees and set the seat heaters to 2. (Seat heaters use very little power.) When you leave for work, wear a warm coat and turn the heater off. You will have plenty of mileage to do the round trip. On normal days of 40 degrees + you will have plenty of mileage for your commute.
The "GO time" is a good tool if you have a very normal schedule. For me when I get home I set my heater to 68 degrees, turn off the car and plugin the charger. In the morning just before leaving I use the app to turn the car on. It will stay on for 5 minutes and turns itself off. The heater in the FFE heats up very quickly because it is a resistance heater not a hot water heater. My car is toasty when I leave and I turn the heater down to 64 degrees and low fan setting for my commute.
How can I get the energy consumption number such as xxx watt per mile?
This is my favorite gauge. Most people use the Energy Batteries with plus or minus surplus. Here is how you get there - Left side of steering wheel, left click, choose "Trip" gauge. You have a chocie of 2 trip gauges. I use trip 1. When there, right click the the left steering wheel button and choose "Enhanced" mode. This will tell you how many Wh/mile use are using and how many Kwh you have used. You will have to get used to it. When you start it will tell you you are burning 999 Wh/mile. After about 1/2 mile you will see it settle down and the watts will drop until you reach your normal driving condition. My goal in the warm weather is 250 Wh/mile which equals 4 miles per Kwh. I know my battery charges to 19.5 Kwh so roughly speaking I can drive 4 miles X 20 Kwh = 80 miles. In the winter my goal is 333 Wh/miles which equals 3 miles per Kwh or roughly 60 miles per charge.
Obviously there is a big learning curve in the FFE. It doesn't happen overnight and will take reading the manual, playing with the car, reading posts right here and testing your own techniques on the road. I would not encourage you to drive that commute without charging at work, however after a month driving the car you will be able to do it.
You will learn how the three T's effect your car - Terrain, Technique and Temperature. And you will learn how to milk extra miles. Ford has done a good job of giving us tools for driving efficiently on the highway. Absolutely don't get discouraged.
You will master & love this car.
