Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum, and a recent owner of E-Tron (2 months in). I would like to share what I am seeing in terms of mileage driving this car past two months.
I am seeing a consistent mileage around 260 miles on 100% charge. I usually do not charge more than 70% based on my driving needs. I have also attached a screenshot of Electric Range shown on myAudi App.

I am still in the processing of exploring all the features. I will keep you posted.

You can let the car charge to 100%. The eTron is not like the Tesla where you can charge it to 100% capacity but they don't recommend doing that very often. The eTron has a 95kwh battery however, for longetivity and heat dissipation, a 100% charge is actually limited by Audi to only about 85kwh. Which is why the Audi actually has a lower range than what it should have given such a large battery in the car. You can't really charge it to 100%. When it says 100% charge, it has really only charged to about 85% of it's total capacity.

The manual literally says not to because it’s bad for the battery. A 100% charge is near 100%, and nowhere near 85%.

I'm a new owner too (e-tron just a month old) and have been struggling with getting consistent charging guidance. My research is consistent with what other are saying - Audi reserves a portion of the battery to maintain longevity. I understand this is 12% with 4% at the top and 8% at bottom of capacity. This article may help explain EV battery use/ charging - What can 6,000 electric vehicles tell us about EV battery health? | Geotab
