When I got my iPace in December and noted the low range, I figured it would get better once the snow melted and things warmed up a bit. Once I saw ideal temperatures, my Guess-O-Meter wouldn’t go any higher than 369 kms (229 miles) and in Canada the car is rated at 377 so I figured it was about right. I also attributed the actual range of around 260kms to be due to my aggressive driving style
After around 10,000 kms, I noticed that my battery wouldn’t charge higher than 89% and at that point it was ‘fully charged’ with around 280 kms of range displayed. I took it to the dealer and they checked it out and said that my battery was bad and they had to order a new one. Surprisingly, the battery arrived around 10 days later and they had the car done shortly thereafter. I thought it would be a way more difficult operation, but they showed me the battery once it was dropped out and it is surprisingly simple.
Once I got the car back, the Guess-o-Meter started displaying ranges in the 400s and the actual range got significantly better. I haven’t had any long-ish trips yet to compare, but my previous limited range clearly points to a bad main battery. I am pretty happy with how things have transpired.
I wish i could supply some real world figures but that will have to wait for a few weeks.
