I got this OTA on the 12th and maybe 1 other OTA (can't remember). But maybe they've unlocked the extra usable battery range for SR.
My 21 select awd job 2 car is now showing 70kwh for energy to empty (in car scanner) when charged to 100%
I've a 21' job 2 select awd. And my DCFC charging curve past 80% is much improved. Getting about 28kwh past 80%. Woohoo.
Likely it came with the slew of OTA updates this summer to address the HVBJB recall.
So those with 21' job 2 select waiting patiently for the OTA, it'll come.
In my experience the high voltage battery heater/cooler uses about 6kw max. So the impact on charging time is minimal, unless it's hot out. Then you'll be sharing cooling the cabin with cooling the HVB, and that will in turn take longer to charge your battery.
And oftentimes it won't charge at...
Very interested to know how much more range one would get if preconditioning is used to do a highway trip from 100% SOC down to 5% SOC? Thoughts? Can one expect greater than 5% increase in range assuming exterior temp is 32F (at all times) and car was preconditioned outside?
A silly option is leave car on for heat/ac. Roll down driver window, step out of car, put your arm through window to lock car and to trigger window up (don't forget to pull arm away while window goes up).
Depending on temp (cold/hot) where you live, the HVB heating/cooling might take an avg of 2.5kw (5kw peaks I've seen) during charging. So that will eat the rate at which your battery refills slightly, especially at capped 50kw DCFC
My observations from the 3 map apps in order of routing accuracy. Google maps is tops, rarely get strange routes compared with Apple maps and Ford Nav.
But I like Apple maps carplay full screen portrait UI the best.
Isn't cold weather already factored in the cars displayed mi/kWh avarage? I.e. if your car is already displaying 2.3mi/kWh in winter, can't one just take 70kwh*70%*2.3mi/kwh=112.7mi range left at 70%? Or does one have to also take into account that 70kwh might only have 60kwh usable in winter?
