For probably the first time, nine different electric vehicles took to the road at the same time to perform a controlled test over 105.5 miles.  The goal was to not only gauge the amount of distance travelled, but the amount of power it took to achieve those miles.

Some observations of interest:

    Coda -  "Who would have thought that it would make it around the loop?  It is not a great car, but it has a great battery."

  • Tesla Model S  (85 kWh)- "Driving prudently, it goes around our track twice, and has 56 miles left over to get back"
  • Mitsubishi i-MiEV - "62 miles isn't really enough, unless you live in the city, close to work"
  • LEAF - "The first electric vehicle that went on sale, feels the oldest..."
The other vehicles in the test:
  • Toyota RAV4 EV
  • BMW ActiveE
  • Honda Fit EV
  • Ford Focus Electric
  • VW Golf Prototype
