This is Europe cycle. Could be somewhere between 20 to 25 miles in US.
The battery capacity is 10.7kwh, same as MY2019 T8 models.
It is lighter weight with smaller size, engine, and motor. This definitely helps the range. Just not that powerful.

And there is no rear motor, so no regeneration on the rear brake and not that efficient.
I hope they add a small rear motor in next facelift to address this. Even Toyota RAV4 has a small rear motor.

Because I would think we are all interested in what is happening with respect to drivetrain development. What comes around goes around.

The range extender powertrain on London LEVC taxi could be interesting to some people:
1.5-litre Volvo T3 engine and 147bhp e-motor
electric-only range of 80 miles and overall range of 377 miles.
6 seater

Could be a great family car if they make a family version.
