It is set to 100% Iím going to lower it to 80% just to see what range I get the hopefully itís not 145 miles interestingly my i3s on its 21Ē wheels is getting double the eTron and doing 3.7 miles a kWh and 122 miles per charge I know they are apples and oranges but I just wish the eTron had 20% more range but it doesnít so it is what it is.

6 months out of the year Colorado's average low is below 32 degrees. Interested to see the real world impact of the colder temp range...

If itís anything like my ex-Tesla, short trips are energy hogs; I believe it spends a lot of energy getting the battery up to temp.

My first mile was almost always double the normal consumption and I would only see a level of consumption close to the EPA rate after at least 10-15 miles of driving. On my typical morning ride to school and back (10-ish miles) I would see an energy consumption some 30% higher than EPA rate.

Yeah, but that first line of 48 miles and 55 per 100 is terrible regardless of it preparing the battery in the first few miles.

With my Tesla S90D for three years I would leave after overnight change to 80% on the same commute at 240 available miles and return with 205 miles after a 35 round trip if I had a long trip I’d go to 100% and get 270 miles of range. It is just very dissipating that Audi claimed “real world” miles of actual “regular” driving that the car would originally do 250 miles of range, then readjusted that number to 202 EPA just last month, and yet in the field it barely delivered 172 miles real world. I’m not going to drive this car like my grandma I’m going to drive it normally and at that pace it’s a car the delivers 168 to 172 miles of range which is way less then stated by the manufacturer nearly 50% less. I’m very disappointed in Audi and their algorithms on commuting calculations of range numbers and voodoo analytics. Love the fit and finish but not the range and lack of charging facilities

I have to wonder what range readings Audi was getting, all those years since the introduction, from Sept. 2015 to the release of the 204 by EPA. Audi runs the EPA tests and gives results to EPA.

On E1 --
Driving for a week-
ambient temp ~50-80 deg F
Efficiency mode.
A/C eco on. Radio on. Headlights on auto
Manual regeneration with 2 clicks
one way trip ~16+ miles. fairly flat terrain. max speed 60. avg speed 30+.

Getting consumption of 2.5-2.7 mi/kWh consistently (or equivalent of 370-400 kWh/100miles). This gives it an expected range of 237-256 miles on a full charge.
Still not as efficient as Tesla but better mileage than EPA estimate.

And yes, you 'lose' ~0.7 mile when you turn on the car.

Very apprehensive initially but very, very pleased with the purchase! ... so far.

Drive in eco and don't stomp it? That's not fun but that's gonna up your range a lot. I can get 230-240 driving like an old person

I'm guessing everyone driving around in an e-tron at the moment is driving on 21 inch wheels. That should result in a roughly 10% range penalty compared to the 19 inch wheels, which I'm sure is what the EPA range is based upon.

Does that mean at 78 Iíd automatically achieve 230-240 mile range?
