Very interesting. I’ll google the Recurrent Battery Health project — or do you have a link? Thanks!
We have had our 2021 Premium Plus for about 6 weeks now and charge the vehicle to 80% which gives me an indicated range of 156 to 158 miles. Our experience in local driving has been pretty good with the range not going down precipitously. When we are on our freeways at 80mph that is another story but for urban driving, no problem, 156 mile range is more than enough.So I just came back from a test drive on a Premium Plus E-tron. It was all on level local streets in mostly slow traffic, driving in eco mode on for a total of about 15 minutes. The range went down 6 miles for a total distance traveled of about 3.5 miles. Not great. The temperature was in the upper 50s, so I'm not sure the issue of keeping the battery at 77 degrees should have been a major factor.
This is the only thing that gives me pause about this otherwise great car. The ride was undeniably smooth and ultra quiet.
Any thoughts from owners about the range issue? Should temps in the upper 50s really impact range as I saw it?
Did folks see the Edmunds article re: EPA ratings vs actual driving mileage? Every car but Tesla outdid the EPA predictions. Tesla responded that the car gets the predicted mileage if one ignores the battery meter and drives until it dies.Yesterday I drove my new 2021 E-tron SUV 25 odometer miles but saw the range go down 38 miles (from 173 at the start to 135 upon return) with climate control set at 72 degrees. Most of the drive was on limited access roads with little braking. In the nine days I’ve had the car I’ve capped daily battery charging at 80%. Is this ratio of odometer mileage/battery mileage consumption normal? What am I missing here?
Are you saying that the you can call up the main charging screen on the MMI that you would normally reach by going VEHICLE > CHARGING & EFFICIENCY > CHARGING with a shortcut?There are several minor ways that the Audi e-tron is a step down from the LEAF, and this is one.
You can get the battery % on the center screen, and I often do and have a shortcut for it, but that is a waste of display.
