    I don't know how it is there but here it is usually over a period rather than an instantaneous value.
    Such as fault current.

    I did at one time. This is just the second diesel I've had. And that's in 50 years of driving.

    The 696 is the remaining range.
    The 372 is the distance covered since the last refuel.

    It's a Honda Accord 2.2 IDTEC Exec.
    It's a diesel with a manual six-speed box.

    Yes, energy rates. Not energy.
    The 85kWh is energy. Not an energy rate and not power.

    No, it isn't. Apart from anything else, the Ah doesn't take into account volts.
    For kWh, you must do so.

    It's a long shot
    The 420A on the two phases doesn't seem inordinately high for 350HP (261kW). If you assume 0.82pf, 93% efficiency and 460V it would be within the full load rating of the motor.
