My best predictions for range under standard conditions
So I thought I'd model range on the basis of the data I have gathered in conjunction with known physical effects (for elevation and drag) and empirical data (for AC use and baseline energy consumption). I also included a stop-and-go penalty at low speeds (since low average speeds imply frequent stops / slowdowns for lights and such). I'm assuming that driving style is 'normal'. Not too much babying and not too aggressive. Also, no headwind/tailwind or modeling of the thinner air at higher altitudes (which does make a difference for drag).
There are two tables, one for range as a function of speed and temperature, and one for range as a function of speed and elevation gain (loss). See if this matches your experience ... it looks pretty good to me overall (though I have no first-hand experience with very low or very high temperatures yet).
