    This relates to a MS 75. Charged battery to what I thought to be about 85% of capacity, charging stopped at an indicated 264 miles. The data for the battery states "up to 259 miles". Battery display on phone app and on car screen shows charging stopped short of capacity. Is this some "fuzzy math", or does the current air temp of 105° have something to do with it? I don't believe I'm complaining, but curious.

    Do you have it set to show Ideal Range instead of Rated Range?

    Nick answered the question; I was showing "Ideal Range", when I clicked on "Rated Range", the numbers made some sense. Thank you. That was easy ..........................
