      After 280 mile trip a mixture of all roads averaging 4.2kw. Ii do think 300 miles is possible, mainly driving in comfort mode ‘B one pedal’

        This does not show you traveled the distance, its only the predicted range.

          It does say that they averaged 4.2kw though, which backs up what they’re saying.

            You must not be pushing the gas down at all getting that sort of range on a e35 model, did you do a 280 miles trip on 1 single charge from 100%?

            I’ve been averaging 2.8kw (201 miles at 100%) unfortunately enjoying the rapid power of the car, I’m trying to get to 3-3.5kw maybe cruising on a motorway trip will help, have yet to go on it.

              Where? what’s shown is a prediction, before the vehicle is driven, that will change once the vehicle is driven

              actual range can only be measured from a full battery to zero and mileage driven at the end, not the start.

              Im afraid this is the trap most EV users fail to see. It is only an estimate based on the past, not what you will get going forward.

                This is more a true reflection, especially from a vehicle build on a non bespoke EV platform

                I would also add 200 miles true range is more what I’d expect considering  current temps etc.

                  Where?

                  In the first sentence – ‘After 280 mile trip a mixture of all roads averaging 4.2kw’

                    Ignore the picture and read what is said. I’m quite sure the poster is aware that the image is only an estimate. It is their car after all.

                      yes he said that, but there is no proof

                        Why do you need proof?

                          We don’t, maybe the wrong word, but just in this thread alone there are 2 different owners stating different ranges, and since the OP posted a picture of the “estimated” range before any trip it does not confirm anything unfortunately.

                          At current temps it would also be highly unlikely that we would see the theoretical maximum vehicle range just yet.

                            @ScotT
                            You’ll be aware that there is a suite of Journey data in the i4, including averages since factory, since trip start, since last charge and since manual reset. I have no doubt the OP has achieved an average of 4.2 miles/KWh .

                            My own average is 3.4, but I saw 4.4 on a gentle but not sedate round trip of 120 miles.

                            Yes the range in the picture above is only an estimate but at a 4,2 average, 300 miles would be technically quite possible

                              its good to hear people are getting these figures

                                @ScotT You can easily get 220-250 miles on average even during this season, it depends on driving style and pre-conditioning and wind flow can be at its advantage, regardless of long trips there’s super fast chargers at service stations in most areas so it wouldn’t be a hassle.

                                  My main runs are A roads and quite hilly I’m lucky if I get 3.4 per kw if the roads clear in front of me I’m in D mode and freewheeling down the hills with D regen set to low .

                                  when I’ve been doing more stop starty runs through town I’ve been getting 3.7 in B mode

                                  the car was on 80% this morning and estimating 180mile range.

                                    Done 4.4Kw quite easily today just put it in start stop ACC letting the car do all the work with air con on and economy mode using B mode selection.
