Does the range shown when fully charged depend on past driving? I did a 100% charge and it shows range as only 189 instead of the 204 or whatever is the claimed range. Do people get different ranges when they charge their etron to 100%?

If you have a read of other charging related topics you’ll see this is based upon projected range calculated from previous usage and driving history

Yep. The range estimate is based on your recent EV driving efficiency and battery charge, which will also update as you drive. For a better estimate on a planned drive, use the Nav system as it will factor in speed, type of road, altitude, etc. But yours is within the "normal range."

Check out the search function, as there a lot of posts on the forum with folks reporting their driving range and efficiency. If the range is abnormally low and driving efficiency is good, there could be an issue. Check with the dealer. Otherwise, it's mostly likely driving habits. Avoid high speeds, go easy on the throttle, check tire pressures, make use of regen braking (don't slam on the brakes), etc.

EV efficiency is measured in kWh/100mi, or how much energy used over 100mi, where a lower number is better. And mi/kW is how many miles per kW, where a higher number is better. Focus on improving those numbers and your range will improve accordingly, to the limits of the vehicle, of course.

I like the way now to drive in an efficient way. I love driving the etron. It is an amazing car to drive and people are excited about the car. It is a beast😀

I get different ranges depending on recent driving histories. My favorite is seeing the guess-o-meter instantly drop from 157 miles range at the charging station to 125 miles when the next station is 120 miles down the road in the desert and it's 110 degrees out.

What kind of range do you see when you drive the e-tron like your merc? :)
(e.g. lots of boost mode)

Hard to say, I drive the Audi like my mother while the American wife drives her Merc like I used to drive when I was 16 years old. I like the quiet of the Audi and have only used Boost mode twice in 6,xxx miles while she paid way too much for the optional shouty exhaust. It's pathetic I know.

157 mile range, however is based on 75-80 mph highway driving across the desert in three figure temperatures.

It seems people are too lazy to do a simple search. This topic has been discussed to death on this and many other e-tron forums.

Well, it is an interesting dilemma. Many people feel it is based on your driving “style”, but I was having huge issues and it started just like that. One day it charges to w04 or even more, then gradually it was charging less and less. When I couldn’t get it to charge over 100 miles, no matter what level charger I used, or the duration, I brought it back to Audi 9where it has now been for a week and a half). Despite looking at the car on a number of occasions and deeming it fine, this latest visit found a faulty battery and two others out of synch. So there was an actual problem. Will be interesting to see how long it takes to repair...sorry for your trouble. Make sure all ancillary things like AC, seat heaters/cooling and heat are off during the charge. If it keeps up, I’d get it checked out before you lose faith in the car as I have.

Don't be despondent about the range. - I've been there too, experienced the frustration and just charged my car to 100% and the range displayed in the cockpit is 221 miles!

I had previously driven the car on a road trip and plugged in at home - Level 1 only use the Audi whip - and after a few days of charging, was very happy to see 211 mile range displayed.

Due to Covid, most of the driving was local, all within a 2-3 miles, so this was the first time we'd driven 150+ miles on a single charge. Car was in 'dynamic' mode, we had A/C on, seat fans, everything......

I'm not sure what the previous issues had been or why it the dashboard and App only ever showed 175~ miles on a full charge, but I'm now happy and relieved.

We have a 2019 Prestige and seeing it in the driveway still makes me immensely happy and it's by the most comfortable, quietest and speediest cars I've ever driven. In short, I love it!

Changes based on the terrain, driving style, etc. (unfortunately this board doesn't give you city info)...but for those with lots of highway and flat terrain, you are going to look great. For those of us with lots of hills (I mean 10-20% city street grades), then you will be feeling let down. And if do lots of highway miles (with fewer mountain pass runs), then we get closer to 240 miles....in city, we settle to 199 or 209 in summer and 169-189 in winter (and we don't get colder than -28F/-2C here)...so in harsher winter places, then ouch...
