I have a Oct 2018 LR RWD also with about 24k miles. Currently, at 90% I typically have an estimated range of between 270-275.Probably already addressed here or elsewhere but I also have a question about range.
I have a 10/2018 build M3 LR RWD. Have been charging to 90% since day one. (Have 30K miles) Maybe to 100% a handful of times for long trips. SOC indicates 258 miles @ 90% charge.
Is this considered low? Is this normal? Is it inaccurate or should/can it be “reset”?
Typically driven fairly conservatively, mixed freeway/streets, with A/C due to hot SoCal weather.
Please advise. Thanks in advance!
Before COVID I used to run the battery down to 60% every day and charge back to 80%. Occasionally, I’d charge it to 90% (once every month or so) and only to 100% maybe 3 times total.
Since COVID, I typically let the battery run down to at least 40% before charging (which takes over a week or sometimes almost 3 weeks now) and then charge it back to 80% or 90%. I’ve never charged it to 100% since COVID.
In the past 2 weeks, I’ve been taking regular ~160 mile trips, 2 or 3 times a week, and during that time, I regularly charged it to 90% and my estimated range has been slowly creeping up: at 90%, it showed 282miles.
Do what you will with this information. While my estimated miles may be higher than yours at 90%, I wouldn’t worry too much. I bet if you take a few long back to back trips like I did, and charge back to at least 90% after each trip, you will see an increase in estimated miles.
