I see a similar 65-68 if I recharge after a city only route.
Lookin' good! I would have expected a better number after city-only driving. In my own case, because I'm a leadfoot, I'm usually under RR=60; nevertheless, I showed RR=82 after my 65+mile round trip to the airport a few days ago. Have around 30K miles on my Mitti
replacement battery pack. Range is whatever we need it to be and I still defy anyone to predict what their full-charge RR number will be.
For anyone reading this for the first time, there are two things to note with our i-MiEV's Range Remaining (RR) display after a full charge -
1. It reflects how the car was driven for the preceding 15 miles (24km) and excludes heater or A/C usage. Turning on the heater or A/C will decrease the displayed RR number by about 20% and 10%, respectively. Rather than being a measure of battery capacity, RR simply reflects the driving conditions surrounding the previous 15 miles.
2. Mitsubishi has done a nice job of camouflaging the true battery capacity as they merely reduce the (invisible and unknown) distance you can drive in 'turtle'. This has sure not subjected us to the angst that, for example, Leaf owners have as they see their capacity bars drop.
The battery capacity number stored by the car is accessible using the CaniOn and EVbatMon apps.
