Welcome to the forum. I concur with #Dantrium... after 10k mi on 3 different I-Paces, including two 2019 FEs (one a loaner for 2k mi) and now a 2020 HSE (I traded in my FE to 'delete' the heated windshield) I've seen it all with the GoM: 100% SOC max of 201, 282, and (for the first 6 months or so on software version S18_D) variability between 190 and 240 depending on my recent driving history. Unless and until JLR makes some radical changes to the software, you should count on range of 185-210 highway and 215-250 city, depending on (i) speed - the faster you drive (over 50mph) the worse range gets, (ii) auxiliary power use (HVAC, heated steering/windshield/seats, etc., including use of preconditioning while not plugged in) and (iii) ambient temperature - the lower the air temperature the worse range gets.
All that said, recently I have experienced what you describe above: my I-Pace had been exhibiting a 100% SOC range of 201, then I used preconditioning several times last week... now I'm again seeing the 282 at 100% SOC. I've learned to ignore the GoM and use the 50 mi per quarter "tank" reading as a crude estimate of range. I've (recently) watched the 282 run down to 30 mi over 180 ACTUAL mi driven.
Although after 9 months the novelty of the car has worn off, the joy of driving it hasn't. Luckily, I haven't experienced any of the major issues reported in this forum (which I expect is the case for most owners). I have only 3 regrets: (i) the sluggish infotainment, but I'm over that, (ii) as an eager early adopter I paid about $10K more than those who waited 6+ months, and (iii) watching the media treat lukewarm (and recently declining) sales of the car as a negative seems to only further handicap sales.
