Did one of our "long drives" on Saturday and used up ~50 miles of our 96 (90% charge). By the time I plugged in, I was showing ~45 mi remaining and about 47% charge (IIRC, could be off by a couple of %).

By the time I hit 90% the following day (L1 trickle charge at home), I was showing 89 mi range. This is the lowest I have seen since owning the car early February. Drove it this morning, and after a couple of in-town driving for about 10 miles, I am showing 85 mile range (so lost 4 mi) and 79% battery charge (lost 11%). Confusing to say the least. Hope to see back to 96 mi or higher with the warm weather.

What did your miles per kw reading show on the dash as a matter of interest. (using info button) and also on settings, information what does you last few trips look like. As you know the range is an estimate based on your last journey. Warm weather here we come. Getting around 113 at 90% at the moment, with temp in the range 8 - 14 degrees currently in not so sunny Edinburgh🌧☂

My Full charge Range has gone down the more 60+ Mph highway driving I do. I Take a 50 mile Drive to Wilmington and DC fast charge to 90% and drive home and it’s always lower after doing trips like this.

If I reset the computer trip data. It go’s back up when I’m in my own city.

Pro-Rider, yip highway, motorway call it what you want draws you into higher speeds and chews more power, especially on hilly terrain. There goes your range calculation.... I am over it now and sit at a steady 50 mph'ish to extend range where required and I now get more friendly waves, especially the single finger ones, from kindly truckers. Sitting at about 3.8 miles per kw at the moment.
