Yes mate I work for Renault lol

Are you basing your range off the dashboard in the car or your actual usage? For example, can you do 100 miles with 50% battery? If so, what is your average miles/kWh?

If you are seeing poor mileage on an average fuel economy, then I would suggest you probably have a dud cell somewhere in the battery. There are apps to check battery health if you buy an ODB reader - I used to do this with my Nissan Leaf to record battery degradation.

However, I feel you are charging your car to full, seeing X number of miles on the dash, and taking that as your range. This is not the case.

I would just ignore your estimated range and start to learn how the car uses electricity per %. Once you know your average fuel economy, you can take to make decent estimates of range. The battery is 60kWh so 3 miles/kWh gives you 180 miles, 3.5 is 210, 4 is 210 and so on...

When my Megane E-tech was delivered it had a full charge of 100% the dash showed a range of 279 miles, has anyone had the same delivery range shown as my car, then after that been able to carry out a full charge of their car and get within 10% of Renault e-tech range of 280miles 280 - 10% =252 miles. My Megane barley charges above 200 miles on a full 100% charge?

I'm trying to help you, but you don't seem to want it.

Get an OBD reader and check the battery health.

But go off the maths and not off the guess-o-meter. "The battery is 60kWh so 3 miles/kWh gives you 180 miles, 3.5 is 210, 4 is 210 and so on..."

@RayMe, you never mentioned anything about your average energy consumption. With a simple math you can find the real range. I very often get 270-280 miles of range (even more in some cases) but i average 4.5 miles/kWh at 20-30 degrees outside and 3 miles/kWh during winter at -5/-10 degrees.
Maybe you have high energy usage due to some other reasons which reflect in low range.
