723 kWh and 500 km later

I have now moved into the center of Stockholm and left the safe private parking space and socket behind.

The electricity now available is from public, yet quite experimental, points of charge.

Fortunately at Kungsholmen close to where I live electric company Fortum (Swedish) has two free of charge sockets opened with an RFID key. That is part of an evaluation project so the future of free charging is unknown

Anyway the cost of electricity is almost symbolic. After some 500km driving with my i-MIEW the energy meter at my old parking lot was reading 723kWh

Since a kWh is appr 1SEK it means 1.50 SEK/10 km

Compared to my “retired” Mercedes ML320 SUV consuming some 1.5L the cost would have been 500 x 1.5 x 13SEK = 9750 SEK!

Free or not is not the main issue since the price of the car is 350.000-380.000 SEK

The i-MIEV is still running on payed kWh from my old parking with some 50km driving remaininng.


Next stay tuned for the public charging adventure..
