Range temperature dependent or charging habits?

It has been very warm here in MA the last couple of days with temps last night in the 60s. My range as of last night is back to normal. Is it the ambient temp or something else?

You battery is doing well for an LR RWD. Looks to me like you are seeing greater drops this winter than last winter (when the car was new?) due to some degradation but it’s only on the order of a couple % at most (77.5kWh down to 76kWh), and it is hidden from view most of the time AFAIK, until you get below 76kWh or so.

I’d expect relatively soon you’re going to start seeing the rated miles at 100% slightly below 325 even in warm weather, but overall given the car’s age and mileage, you are doing pretty well.
