EV Range Estimate (not reality)

Hi Everyone,

I have had my car for a year. I have watched the EV Range Estimate on a full charge fluctuate from 68 to 47 (usually at 53). I haven't paid much attention to it, but I did find that because it is based on past driving it is not really accurate.

What I mean is that when I do my daily commute to work, regardless if I started at 68, 53 or 47, I almost always return home with around 1 to 4 miles left of EV.

Just wanted to share.
