    Energy / battery - why no adaptive range?

    Exactly. But we seem to be alone in our view here! Maybe early adopters of EVs are already reconciled to the limitations and shortcomings, I am a new (late) adopter and I think they should have done a better job here and - if they had - a lot of the real world range anxiety problem would be...
