Cool New owner of I-Pace

Recently changed my Volvo XC60 Diesel to an I-Pace. First impressions are just positiv except for the battery range which is quite confusing. I feel a little bit as in an anticlimax, 470 km on one charge exists only in a fairy tale, in reality, one can be happy to get 300 km as best. But how often am I going to drive as long, probably never, and if, there is always a charging station somewhere. Still, the marketing about the range is a bit tricky, for not to use stronger terms.

Yes it takes a little getting used to and the car also has to get used to your driving style and you will find the range indicator (also called the Wild Guess-O-Meter) starts to get a little closer to reality. Yes, I would be worried about starting a 300km trip in the dead of winter so I share your feelings on that, however I also found that through my daily driving I charge up less and less as I am not as concerned as I used to be when I purchased my first BEV. It all takes some getting used to. I remember the same range anxiety back in the 80s and 90s when I couldnt find diesel after 10:00 at night.

It would be interesting to know what was changed. Is it the difference between LG and Samsung batteries? New tires? Other software tweaks?

Cooled glove box? Just another option to suck range (which box, center or passenger dash?) But 300 mi range for MY20, now that is interesting news! Any validity to that or just hearsay? I could understand if they were keeping quiet about it, given they have over 1000 MY19's still to move. If 300 mi range is true, what was done? Any software change that could impact the MY19's?
