My new car now has 263 miles of mostly local driving. You would think that charging to 80% twice would have covered that, but it came with 70% charge and has had 2 partial charges in addition to the 2 charges to 80%. On a 2.2 mile drive on level ground with 3 traffic lights on the route and 50 degree outdoor temperature, the range dropped 9 miles.
Is there a break-in period for the battery, after which the range improves? Does it sound like I have a defective battery?
