September 26th, I made in Austria my driving license upgrade.
6 hours on a 3500
October 3rd, I had the opportunity for 4 days testdriving
First discovery: the odometer shows 1 km after 809m
The montain test showed a big improvement compared to my E-Max S from 2006.
For the first 550m height difference only the half time and the engine just 10 degree Celsius warmer than air temperature.
As I reached the top of the montain (Salzburg 420m above sea level, Gaisberg 1260),
the engine was still cool, the batteries just 3 degree Celsius above air temperature.
Only the controller had 44, 32 degree above air temperature. This could be dangerouse at hot days.
Surprising was the low consumption, despite the much higher speed, lower as the consumption of my old e-Max S.
