One of the most common topics here is the perceived loss of range because people see that the range meter is showing less than the expected range, one day it's 278, another it's 275 and sometimes it's 271. In your hear of hears you know that the battery isn't really degrading before your eyes but the range display makes it seem as if it is. I fliped my display to percent the other day and it's had a real calming effect. The charge level bounces around a little, today it's at 89% but last night it was at 88%, that's just due to the vampire drain and when the car decides that it needs to top the battery off. When you are driving and you really do need a range estimate the energy graphs are a far far better way to get that information because the estimate on the energy graph is based on the recent energy use from driving and the heater, you can also see how your energy use varies minute by minute. There is nothing disturbing in the energy map because it's clear that it's based on speed, going up or down hills, and heat are what it's basing the number on, not the health of your battery.
