Top Speed103 MPH (165 KPH)
Theoretical top speed based on gearing. I
doubt it could do that speed with the
batteries in the shape they are in now.

timed with a stopwatch on my phone (not
very accurate). It pulls real hard up 45
or so.

The ev calculator said I could get up to
50mi with conservative driving, but I
don't have the patients to drive that way.
Range has decreased considerably after a
summer of driving.
