Has anyone exceeded the estimated range?

    I made a reservation for an ID4 Pro S, but know it will be quite awhile, so I've been watching videos to learn more about the car. So far, most have shown the car getting well below the stated estimated range, even in warm weather. Some of the folks seem to he driving more aggressively than I do, and range tests were done on highways.

    A local weatherman has a Niro Ev, and he has said that he gets ~200 miles per charge in the winter, but up to 300 in the summer (estimate ~240 miles). It's a FWD, and the ID4 video I was watching was a RWD. All this is giving me a bit of second-guess-edness.

    I have the ID4 First Edition, RWD. Almost a year now. And I live in CA, so not much cold weather. The very first time I charged I was shocked that it went to 350! But the more you drive it the more the car learns your habits. I am not an aggressive driver and on average my 100% charge takes me to around 300. I'm very happy with that, given VW promotes the car as having a 250 mile battery range. That said, I believe you are not supposed to charge to 100% on a regular basis - VW says 80% is better for the battery (not sure if that is the case with all EVs, or just VW). And that puts me close to 250 range for an 80% charge.
     
  4. I got my Ioniq 5 the first week in March, when it was still pretty cold. Charging to 80% gave me an estimated range of just over 200 miles. Sometimes 220, once I think I got 230. The last few weeks things have warmed up and now I’m seeing 80% estimates of 250 and better. The factory spec says 255 is the expected. Warm weather makes a tremendous difference. However, I am worried by what I’ll see next January and February.
