  • Hi Nikki, like the new website. Regarding the comments about how EVs should be rated for “fuel” efficiency, I think it would be useful to know the kWh per mile figure. I do agree that most people won’t know what it means and if you are just looking at one EV, say the Leaf, it is pretty useless. Now if you are comparing the Leaf, Focus EV and Think City for example, then all you really need to know is are lower or higher numbers better. Of course this only works if everyone uses the same units. You don’t want one rated in miles per kWh, another in watt hours per mile and another in kWh per 50 miles.
