    Colder weather will affect battery range

    I don’t think it’s the weather impacting range, it charges to bang on 60k every time?

    Regardless of whether it was saying 80km or 60km, what were you actually getting?



  • Registered Users Posts: 515 ✭✭✭ shaydy


    A little less than 60

    so, theestimated range was 80km when the car was new.


    its now 60 km,


    and your getting, and always ahve got just under 60km ev range?

    The range is a guessometer based on the past driving.

    If you drive 50-100km of slower around town driving you'll get the GOM back up to 80 or more.

    It's completely irrelevant. Your actual range has not changed. You still have ~20kWh usable (unless you're in the US in which case you have 17kWh)

    I have mine since September 2020 and I have never had an estimated range of 80KM at fully charged.

    Occasionally I might see 70, but usually Im seeing around 60 - 62.

    And as @jesus_thats_gre suggested - the actual range could be very different.

    Overall Im very happy with what Im getting out of mine.

    My daily driving is just under 50KM so most days Im on electric only.

    Currently I have 11.8K Km since I took delivery and 6.4K Km have been electric - thats 54% and Im showing 52.5 mpg

    However, I got caught up in the battery recall so for 3 months I was not allowed to charge the car (as instructed by BMW) and I was driving on petrol.

    I got the all clear at the end of February and now my numbers are way better.

    Since then I have 8.7K Km total, with 6.5K Km electric - 75% electric with an MPG of 85mpg
