I have an AWD LR M3. I drive fairly conservatively due to the traffic patterns on my route during my commute and eek out about 175-190 Whr/mile during the summer days in NYC vs the 250-290 Whr/mile during winter.
I have never charged the car to 100%, max being 90%. Have had the car since early November 2018, and have added about 6500 miles since ownership.
For the most of it, I have charged my car to 70% capacity, which has put me at or around 218-221 range at charge completion.
I drive about 19 miles each way (home-work).
After a full 70% charge (220 mile range) and driving to work for about 19 miles, I will have about 204-205 miles of range still left (as I said 175-190 Whr/mile). Car sits in a garage with network connectivity (AT&T LTE gets coverage) and the temps are ideal to prevent battery drains. When I'm done with work, there generally isn't any range loss.
When I drive home later in the day - after another 19 miles - the range on my car will read 189-190 miles. An hour after or so later (or sometimes even after 20 minutes), the range is 180-181. This has consistently been the case for me no matter what I do. If I stop the car with around 190-185 miles left, the car will "lose" about 9-10 miles just like that. I have observed this consistently for the past 3 months.
