2018 Honda Clarity
When I pickup my clarity it was charging 48 max after a couple of months it went down gradually. Now my full charge is between 30-34.

I dealt with the Manager and no help. Keep saying nothing is wrong. What do you guys think.

Hi. It was discussed in another topic. The range is being calculated in accordance with your driving habits. If you have driven the car fast it will show less mileage. Try driving the car for the next few days slower and you will see the difference.

Two (of many) things that will change EV range estimations: climate and driver’s right foot.

Much of the current battery tech is temperature dependent. Both colder or hotter temps than ideal will reduce EV range but colder has a bigger effect primarily because the chemistry is less efficient while the vehicle/driver require more heat that is (in EV mode) only supplied by the battery.

Keeping a close eye on any driver’s scores/displays can tell you if the right foot has anything to do with it too.

If you think it’s a hardware/battery issue, you can get a test reading done at most Honda dealers that can be compared to the new rating.

GOOD LUCK!

When you picked up the car, the number of miles per charge was based upon the previous driver. The more you drive it, the more it will reflect your driving habits. Use gradual acceleration and deceleration, avoid jackrabbit starts, anticipate full stops, try to keep a constant speed, don’t turn on air or heat unless needed, and you may get the number to come back up. In mild temperatures I get about 65-70 miles on a charge but my car (2020) only has a little over 3000 miles on it.

It's normal.
Range varies with your driving style, use of climate controls, weather (low temps) and different terrain.
