+1Not at all strange. A simplistic range based on no destination information that says you have 300 miles of charge is somewhat meaningless. Such a guessometer is all we in the Leaf world have. It's based on your recent driving. The car doesn't know where you are going when you first turn it on.
If the Mach E navigation system works like they say it will, then once you enter a destination and a route is calculated, then it can estimate the real-world range based on the roadway. If you then drive on a 65 mph but drive 75, it will adjust again.
A 300 mile EPA range will be significantly less at 75 mph.
Range without route is meaningless. Tesla buries the route-based range, although it is used in the navigation tool. I wish they brought it to the forefront and didn’t portray it as a remaining charge graph in a secondary screen.
