Yesterday I took my car to the airport, where it sits and charges while away in TX. It was the longest trip I took so far and wanted to evaluate range and efficiency. I've owned for a month as of tomorrow and have been feeling the estimated max range displayed has been on the lower side and that efficiency isn't that great. So I decide to document this trip and open to you guys for thoughts.
I set the preconditioning, but not 100% if it worked or not; I really don't know much about it or how it works. Within the car I turned it on, selected the day and time for departure and that's pretty much it.
Estimated range at 100% charge 210 miles
Weather sunny no winds 54 degrees
Trip fairly flat roads mainly highway
Drove in comfort mode for about 10 mins then switched to eco mode
No aggressive driving
Did no use heater, ac, steering assist. Only used radio
Estimated range upon arrival 137 miles
Actual miles driven 54.7
Car used 73 miles
I noticed the driving style stats from within the car differ from the stats show under journeys on the mobile app; curious why. Also noticed that although the car displayed an estimated 137 miles remaining the battery meter icon showed I only used a 1/4 of the battery. But if I used a quarter, if my math is right, I should show 157.5 miles based on 210 max range. So if I really used a quarter maybe my max range should have shown 289? I don't know, still not sure how its calculating that and have felt the displayed lower 200 range for max range is off based on my driving style, weather, and not really using the heater or ac. I was able to park at a charger and the car charged to max before I got to TX and it now shows max estimated range of 206.
I attached screenshots below. What you guys think?
Also, sorry in advance that the pics are showing sideways, I don't know why its doing that when I upload.
