When fully charged its only showing 26 miles and the gauge isn't showing full ... any ideas ?
I don't yet have mine so not speaking from experience, but from what I've seen on here before it could have something to do with your min and max settings on charging. Worth a bit of a play around on the app / MIB to see what you find?
Yeah, similar situation here !.Upon my 2 yr. old GTE whereas in 2015/6 would show 29 after full charge in summer months is now only showing 27 this summer. Whether Service Campaign 93B3 software updates had any bearing upon this or battery now starting to show early degradation after repeated charging I know not.
I would check to see if you have your climate control turned on from the previous journey !. I think nearly everybody on this forum has at sometime left either there climate just turned on at the lower level prior to charging the car. If you leave the climate turned on - charge the car and then turn on the car the following morning it will drop the predicted range on the GOM by 5 or 6 miles instantly !. Having the drivers door mirror in the "heated" section will pull down the range by 1 mile also !.I've found something in the manual that says that it's normal for the first few cycles, I'll see how it goes
Many thanks for all the info and suggestions
But we'd be in one of the ugliest cars ever made and a 400 mile journey in a day when needed would be impossible Go on, tell me it's beautiful and gets a 200 mile charge in 5 mins!If you''d bought 30kWh Leafs you could have added a hundred to that!
Paying extra for 26 electric miles doesn't seem worth the higher cost.
Seriously, back on post, and sorry sure this is covered elsewhere in the GTE forum, but do you reckon it's better to almost fully discharge the battery then recharge (I currently do a 9 mile round trip and top up each night)?
Thanks Tudor - will see what charging every other night does for the guess o meter - I only have prior experience of lithium ion powered hedgecutters to go by (and they don't have a metres to cut GOM!). Hope these replies are helpful to Clattergate.I would go with: charge it when you need to. With 9 miles round trip, I would expect that you can make it a couple of days (18 miles) before needing a charge. Three days (27 miles) would be near impossible.
How many 26's in 400 ? Five minutes or not, that's an awful lot of stopping to do if you wish to run purely on electric. 26 miles isn't worth the bother.But we'd be in one of the ugliest cars ever made and a 400 mile journey in a day when needed would be impossible Go on, tell me it's beautiful and gets a 200 mile charge in 5 mins!
Most People don't buy/lease/get this car to run completely on electric.How many 26's in 400 ? Five minutes or not, that's an awful lot of stopping to do if you wish to run purely on electric. 26 miles isn't worth the bother.
