Planner indicates to arrive at destination with 15% battery power left. Realistic or should I expect to charge on Route? Most of trip will be motorway. TIA

Do you have a charging station at your destination? If not, I'd buffer in some charge time so I have more than 15% at my destination.

Depends on how fast you drive.
What is the outside air temperature in your part of the world?
Is your route mostly flat or hilly?

LR, no problem unless really cold. Set the nav to your destination to let the car keep track of you. It will tell you to slow down if needed

Thanks all for your responses. Was pleasantly surprised by accuracy. Arrived with 16% left. Speed varied from 0 to up up. Outside temp 10 deg and some really heavy rain (I won’t repeat the rubbish auto wipers - oh I just did). Autopilot made for less tiring driving.
