On another note, as known increased speed lowers the mpg, reason why even in Germany most cars actually stay under 90mph (with quite a few even at 70mph or so). For the electric car, the situation is even worse (perhaps even much worse), range decreases dramatically with speed - the graph is for the Tesla S

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye is fast, with 797 horsepower. But
Fiat Chrysler noted that at full throttle, you could drain your gas
tank in 11 minutes

FWIW....for gasoline combustion engines, exceeding 2200 RPMs brings about decreased engine efficiency.

For semi-trucks, wind drag is more pronounced around 55mph and above.

With different engines, gearing, etc., most will follow a general pattern of decrease mpg as a function of higher speeds, but for each, there is a set speed for best mpg, in a given condition. Driving to slow can burn more fuel than driving a bit faster...but not too fast. YMMV, as they say.

It’s all a giant deep state conspiracy to rationalize the speed limit for the worldwide cabal. The problem is the still can’t agree on the units.

You will be able to exceed the 30 mph cabal limit but only if you register your speedometer and pass a background check. Large capacity magazine racks to allow you to read while driving will be allowed, but your bump stops on your suspension won’t be,
