Is this the highest "MPG" of any similar-weight electric car or truck?
For Electric Vehicles: Low Amps = High Mileage
If you have an electric vehicle with similar total weight that draws fewer amps, I'll buy you lunch!

With electric vehicles, the "race" is not who is fastest, but rather, who has the LOWEST CURRENT DRAW on an long uphill road or bridge.
Only a vehicle with clever "electricals" can do this. If you pull out your calculator, you'll realize that the relatively very-low-watts involved here are close to what is theoretically possible.
Can you show a lower current draw on a similar-size/weight electric vehicle?
Can Any Electric Truck Show a Lower Amperage Uphill Run?
If you have an electric pickup, how many amps (at 120VDC nominal) do you draw going up a bridge? About 400 amps, probably?
Lower amps = Longer range
Also, the batteries on this EV were dicarded, worn-out batteries, some from 2003 and from mixed sizes, types, and voltages.
