I have done this test with all my EVs, to get a sense of their range guess, the battery percentage, how they behave, how linear the battery gauge is, etc. I got a chance finally to do same with I Pace last night and here are my thought:

- the range estimate (pre new issues) is actually pretty good. I was driving in "grandma/eco" mode because I had a 68 mile drive with 80 mile range guess, and not knowing the car I wanted to make it. I arrive at destination with 15 miles to go, then drove around until I was down to 3 miles.

- the car behaved absolutely the same a predictably all the way down to 3%. Gave a warning at 10%, battery indicator turned orange, but that was the only warning. I did not drive it down to "emergency" mode if there is any so don't know what that would be like.

- for what its worth the car behaved perfectly all the way down, and felt "stable" and really just like a gas car. I never got any unexpected jumps or drops (I have seen those in a Tesla) towards the bottom.

- It looks like for the last few percents it reverts to a simply multiple of range for percent, or the algorithm stops showing effects of other driving styles.

So all in all very positive, I would feel very safe going down to 5% and even down to 2% in case I had to. Very please.

Thanks, epirali, for doing the test. So what total range did you achieve? Also, where are you located (to get a sense of geography/temps)?

After the last Regen/Gateway update, the range estimate on my vehicle had become pretty accurate as well, hopefully the H228 update being installed today doesn't break that as some are reporting.

You will also note a blue 'max power' line, much like the green 'max regen' line, but on the other side.
It appears at about... 4%?
My car went all the way down to zero, and it forces Battery Saver and the blue line gets tight.

I didn’t do this test for total range (sorry), I know I got a total of 90 miles from 44%, but that was a mix of driving including AC on on a very hot day in VA. The last 75 was with climate off, driving carefully because I didn’t trust the battery SOC and/or GOM yet. Now I do.

In MD/VA area with temps in 70-80 I can easily achieve 240 with climate off and 210-220 with climate on. This is normal driving (not racing, not carrying grandma, and I am an aggressive type driver). Mix of speeds including highways at 80 mph. And I tend to drive in dynamic because I prefer tighter suspension but I can control the acceleration/regen just as well with care as in eco mode. Now that I now the SOC is pretty linear and accurate I am sure based on what was left in range/SOC and what I had actually driven. I was getting 170-180 in winter when it was cold, but I would precondition the car while plugged in.
@McRat: thanks I did notice that but it really hadn’t tightened at 3%. I did keep trying power on dynamic mode and it wasn’t really throttling yet. I am sure it would have if I had the courage to go to 0!

Thanks, @epirali Looks like we are in the same area (DC here) and so are getting similar range :)
