Hi There,

I went on vacation and ran a little experiment. I fully charged my 500e then unplugged it and left it in my garage for 16 days. When I returned it still said 100% charged and 87 miles of range. After driving it my normal amount for the day it said it had the expected amount left so there appears to be very little 'vampire' loss overnight. So feel reassured if you need to leave it at the airport.

This is in contrast to my wife's Model S that used to loose up to 8 miles of range per night and will hopefully down to 1 mile of loss per night after the next software update. It is more responsive to its iPhone app though. I did to have to reinstall the Fiat Access app again to get it working again.

Regards,
Trent

Mine has been in recall limbo for 8 days and according the Fiat Access it still is at 98% which is what it was the day it was towed away. Nice to know it can sit in case I ever have to leave it at the airport for a quick trip.
