different countries have different test methods for range - more city would give a longer range - more highway will give a shorter range.
jaded you arecongratulations...you've fallen for the BS, and the lies....wait a few years when the efficiency of the battery has degraded and it can't even hold the charge it does now......
.....and now you're complaining.............
I don't care one bit, except that this .....crap......is affecting me now, and will have a devastating effect on me down the road if this "movement" is allowed to continue....
Same for meI am from Australia - hybrid mode I get something between 57km - 62km. Pure EV mode, I get something around 62-67km.
You need to accelerate gently (slowly), if you try to max it EV power when accelerating, the battery will discharge a lot faster and cover less mileage.
Also I notice, in slower start stop traffic the car seems to have longer EV range.
Does anyone know why the electric range is less in hybrid mode? If it’s also using the ICE I would have thought you’d get more kms, as the electric wouldn’t be doing all the work?Same for me
I think I know why. With hybrid mode, when it shows 0km/miles left, the battery still have 7-8%. However, if you are in pure mode and it shows 0km, the battery is only 3-5% left. So pure mode will discharge deeper while hybrid mode will maintain 7-8% of battery.Does anyone know why the electric range is less in hybrid mode? If it’s also using the ICE I would have thought you’d get more kms, as the electric wouldn’t be doing all the work?
I’ve still not been able to get a range above 45kms in Pure despite best efforts.
Presumably you were using AC to cool the cabin! Was there much stopping and starting on your trip, or mostly steady acceleration?I was very pleasantly surprised yesterday. I had the battery charged to about 96% . The screen showed 38 miles of electric range. I drove the car for 32-33 miles ( in South Florida August heat) and returned back to my house with 10 miles left of electric range.
Yes i was definitely using the AC. It was a mixture of steady 35-45MPH and sitting still in some of the infamous 5 minute red traffic lights that are so common at major intersections in South FloridaPresumably you were using AC to cool the cabin!
