Just to be clear, your car's actual range has decreased only by the distance that you actually drove. The range you're concerned about is only the range estimate that is constantly being recalculated and should be used only as an estimate because your future driving conditions cannot be foreseen. You'll go crazy if you try to figure out why this estimate changes, so you'll be happier not worrying so much about it.
I'm new to the car and trying to understand how it estimates. I thought it was intelligent and would eventually improve it's estimation of range based on driving style. Meaning it would give me a range based on driving habits/weather, being able to give me an accurate range at the start of driving. Sure, if I mash the power turn on all the extras and drive out of the norm I'd expect the numbers to change.
I've observed this particular range reporting issue rather consistently, loss of 3 miles or so off the bat with very little movement. Wondering if that's normal.
I'm asking because I don't know the state/history of my battery and looking for indications if it's behaving normally.
The range on the 2015 Rex is supposed to be 72 miles. I have yet to get anywhere near that range, even when driving conservatively with creature comforts turned off. I was hoping to do 2 round trips from home to work, 18 miles away so I could avoid daily charging, I can only do 1.5 at best. I was thought with sensible driving I would be able to get more range, but just hasn't happened.
