    had my MX since June. At first 100% charge got me 257 miles as advertised. 90% was 232.

    Now, only after 8 months of ownership, my 90% only gets me 220 miles of range. Local shop says it's normal, but MS owners I know have only lost 3-5 miles of range over the past 2 years of ownership.

    My wh/mile since owner ship is 360. Slightly less than rated.

    What's your experience? Still getting the same range? Have you noticed a drop?

    Thanks!

    You need to fully cycle your battery a few times to truly assess your max range. I bet your range will improve with that.

    Thanks. What does that mean? Drain to 0? How do you fully cycle?

    Thanks!!

    You lost 5%. On average, the battery looses 5% during the first 30000 miles, and then it's much slower. But there is a large variance. See this

    No, the car is reporting 5% less range. That doesn't mean it has actually lost 5% of range.

    not only that, but it could simply be colder temperatures. Just like a gas car, you have less range in cold Temps. Also if you let it sit more between drives - there will be parasitic losses that happen, as well as a few additional variables.
