I would think 130-140 miles is about normal if driving it like a normal car. 2015 - 2016 cars go 80-100 miles (with one notable exception on this forum). 2017 on are 50% larger capacity so 120-150 is about what I would expect.

Nothing changed in your commute? Different time of day allowing you to travel faster on the highway? (Range plummets over 55-60mph.)

You're right, not meaningless, but not scientific either.

If you are really curious for an explanation there are threads in the forum about how to track battery degradation with a spreadsheet using %of charge from CarNet. OBD11, VCDS, etc. (diagnostic tools) are options to actually get information from the car also.

Bradster, you're arguing with the wrong guy. :-) miiumra may have spent more time than anyone else on this board trying to accurately track his battery degradation.

See this post, then read the entire thread to get an idea of how to get a more accurate estimate of your battery capacity:

FWIW in three years of driving the eGolf, I saw the about the same amount of seasonal variation in the GOM as you are seeing.

Without knowing your mi/kWh driving efficiency before and after, your figures are meaningless. It's called a GOM for a reason.


If it's the same commute and same driving style it's not meaningless just because I didn't nerd out and record my numbers.


If you're going to bitch about less range per charge, at least provide raw, meaningful data. It's not about being a nerd, it's about making factual statements, with data to support your factual statement. Don't complain, if you're too lazy to substantiate your claims, like the rest of us.
