    I heard a similar story about this same car many years ago, if true, it would at least be the 3rd new battery this car has had...this story reeks of fish...

    After 2 years of ownership (including the 7 months trying to sell the car) my Hong Kong car is now SOLD to a buyer in Australia.

    Thanks for your support on this forum, over and out.

    That screen shows “Estimated Range” based on recent driving habits. It is not representative of actual battery health or range.

    On that note...I’ve never seen mine that low. They must have solely been flooring it. :rolleyes:

    Or maybe had it sitting idle = "ignition" turned on and playing with all the settings? (Few/0 meters driven and although some energy consumption)

    Mine had 28km coming back from the service center and I know they were running everything down. I had a panic moment for a few seconds. A steady drive home and recharge brought it back up.

    congrats! Mine will be coming the opposite direction (from Texas to Ohio) in hopefully a couple weeks (I'm convinced these will be the longest weeks of my life)
