I just got my first 500e, and am stoked! It's a beautiful orange with white'n'orange seats. I love it!!!!!
i've only had it for 2 months. I bought it used with 10,000 miles on it, so fairly new. I had a concerning observation and I hope some of the senior folks here can help me out...
Yesterday, I took it for it's first long drive on the highway, with the heater on, and on coming back, the battery gauge showed 20% remaining. I plugged it into my EVSE which has an app that shows you statistics like energy added (eMotorwerks Juicebox). After charging to a 100% from 20%, the EVSE said it added only 11.9KWh of energy....
If 80% (100-20) of capacity is 11.9KWh,
100% = (11.9/.8) = 14.75KWh!!!!
The capacity is supposed to be 24KWh. 14.75 capacity means that it has degraded to 60% capacity?!! Am I doing something wrong here?
