Don't you mean that they count Ah? And because of decreasing voltage the Wh you actually get at lower SoC is less than at high SoC?

It's a joke really that you have to go to the Tech trim to get travel assist and here in Ireland that costs 54,000 Euro's, not even an option. id.3 inside is ugly as sin and to be honest for that kind of money neither the id.3 or id.4 should have such poor ergonomics. The Kia E-Niro, it has lots of buttons but once familiar with them you know where everything is instantly and you won't have to fumble around through so many menus on a screen, how distracting, a lot of People are complaining that it's too distracting while driving.

Which one is noisier model 3 or ID.4? My model 3 has many rattles and terrible road noise. Very disappointed, thought of getting rid of it and buy the ID.4. I don't care if the digital part is not as advanced as Tesla. My main priority is comfort.

Your theory is probably right that these cars show SoC based on capacity, not energy. That is the way SoC is defined in battery science, but of course not the info you want in a car. If my car has a 400 km range, I want it to display 50% at 200 km, not at 215 km.

One thing that I am curious about is the charging efficiency? Or to put it differently how much energy is needed from the grid to recharge the battery back to 100% SoC compared to what is used for the driving. I assume that some cars especially those that only have AC charge capability are rather bad in this aspect. Or is that already in your calculations?

About the measurement of the capacity, you probably mean amp-hours times voltage, not watt-hours. As to the temperature in the pack increasing towards the end, it is probably due to the fact that the voltage of the cells, when low, decrease; as such they need to provide more current (therefore amperes) in order to provide the same power. And since heat loss is a function of the intensity squared, this could explain it.

You are correct in your assumptions, Bjørn. The SoC on an EV measures amp-hours (Ah) not kWh, so there is more energy in the top percentages of the battery than the bottom, as the voltage drops (A*V=W). This will also explain the temperature rise in the battery towards the end, since the current will be higher for any given power - and the heating effect goes up with the square of the current, too. More precisely, the BMS counts coulombs - the measure of electrical charge - or amp-seconds (1C = 1As).

And then most other linear SoC scales like in Tesla, I-Pace, e-tron etc they take in account the voltage drop and compensates for it.

Wh is real energy! 1 J=1 Ws, 1 Wh=3600 J. Dividing with volts gives you Ah which is meaningless, since the voltage is dropping as you go. Well, or depends on what you want to know, of course, but Wh is energy, Ah is not. Wh multiplied with V is not a meaningful unit. It's V²Ah, useable for nothing.

@Dusan Gavrilovic I know, but you can not compare them anyway. The space in the luggage is significantly larger in the E tron. E tron is one and a half sizes larger than iD4. id4 is VWs q4 e tron. Audi comes with a car size between the two in the 22 - q6 e tron. The TMS and Porsche Taycan are both built on pure electric platforms, however, they have largely the same dimensions on the outside, but as you say; Taycan is significantly smaller inside. However, they can also not be compared. Porsche is a sports car, TMS is a family car with sporting ambitions.😉

It would be great if you could compare B and D mode in the ID.4. D mode should be more efficient. https://www.volkswagen-newsroom.com/en/press-releases/brake-or-coast-the-id4s-intelligent-energy-recuperation-concept-6658 Coasting is 100% efficient, no energy is used. Regen is not 100% efficient due to inverter and charging heat losses. The important thing in either mode, is not to use the friction brakes. D mode will require more anticipation, but I guarantee that it will be more efficient. I believe the ideal is to have various regen levels available as with the steering wheel paddles in the Audi e-tron. Apparently Porsche believe coasting is far more efficient in the Taycan. Obviously B mode will have to be used on steep down hill sections to prevent the need for friction braking. The ID.4 also has intelligent regeneration in D mode (Eco Assistance). It uses the adaptive cruise control radar to engage regeneration automatically when approaching slower vehicles. The ID.4 can also automatically engage regeneration using speed limit and navigation data.

Higher battery internal resistance with the lower state of charge is why the battery temperature increases at low SOC. The heat loss towards the end is also why the total range decreases faster at the end.

@Bjørn Nyland according to this page https://batteryuniversity.com/learn/archive/how_does_internal_resistance_affect_performance “The internal resistance of lithium-ion is fairly flat from empty to full charge. The battery decreases asymptotically from 270 mW at 0% to 250 mW at 70% state-of-charge. The largest changes occur between 0% and 30% SoC. “. Also https://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/rising_internal_resistance “Li-ion has higher resistance at full charge and at end of discharge with a big flat low resistance area in the middle.” This resistance probably varies from one chemistry to another but I suspect it is fairly typical profile for li-ion. I also suspect that the BMS may switch to even more parallel setup at low SOC to keep available power as high as possible given that battery pack voltage is low and thus the BMS tries to compensate with making as many amps as possible, thus the more parallel setup then. But I am speculating on the latter, no idea if this BMS can do dynamic re-wiring.

11 dager siden
Bjørn Nyland
Bjørn Nyland

Are you sure? Usually internal resistance is lower at lower SoC. That's why Tesla can charge at 250 kW at low SoW. But at low SoC, voltage drops a lot. And in order to maintain the same power (kW), current needs to be higher. And heat loss is a product of resistance and the squared of current.

I really can't recommend a PHEV. Prices are almost the same as BEV, but most don't have decent electric only range nor power. A lot also just switch to the ICE when you demand some decent acceleration. The only people who could use a PHEV is the once that can charge at home and/or at work, and dont need to do a lot of highway miles in their every day driving, but need to go long distances at least once a month. If you dont fall in that situation, the best advice is to save up for a BEV or go second hand BEV/ICE...

11 dager siden

bilgyno1

It depends on your driving needs as well as charging options. Most PHEVs have a lousy electric range and are very thirsty if you just run on petrol. But if for example your daily commute is less than 30 km (in total going and back), and that's most of your driving, it can make sense. If you can charge at work reliably, it could be 60 km in total per day. Of course, you'd need to charge every day. Must admit I haven't looked at a lot of PHEVs lately, because they don't fit my need at all. Might be that there are options now with a longer range.

Good video and information Bjorn. It looks like a legacy auto company is doing a pretty good job with it’s EV offering. Now a 170Kw charging speed will be a serious improvement with a similar curve.

The curve would not be similar. It would probably go to 170 kW at low SOC and then go down in a straight line. It would still shave around 6 minutes of the 5-80% charge time.

good range at that slow speed. But try again at 130 km/h as we use to drive on our german Motorways. 95 km/h is country roads speed.

Watch the whole video before commenting. I also tested 120 km/h (10 km/h over the maximum speed limit in Norway).

Hey Björn Thanks for the video. Is 100% in this car the same as 100% in the Tesla? I know in the Tesla there is no buffer when charging to 100%.

@Bjørn Nyland is this the difference between the 82 kWh gross, 77 kWh Net ? One would assume 100% on the gauge is 77 kWh, although some tests have shown that Volkswagen can drive for many more km past 0% SOC. So could be a safety measure.
