Did a long 200 mile run and on the way home topped up with charge to leave me with 10% charge when I arrived home.
As normal the car over estimated the charge needed quoting 9% left anticipated at end of journey as we left the rapid charger. But we showed 12% as we pulled on the drive.
I plugged in with the car set to start charging at 9am and Zappi set to eco mode.
Needless to say the car didn't start it's charge so I had to unplug and plug but was then surprised to see the car charge down at 4%

numbers don't seem to mean very much at the moment, whether its because of the cold or something else. I haven't had the experience you have just had, but every trip I take seems to use more than I would expect. It's my first ev so will take some getting used to I think. at the moment though I have range anxiety virtually every time I go out. currently my car says I have a 100% charge with a range of 191 miles - if I travel 20 miles it somehow reduces to around 150 miles range, so I have to allow double the distance I want to travel to feel safe. never mind GOM there's POS as well (pinch of salt) now...

Temperature is very critical and if it drops too low it will affect the range so when you switch it on in the morning the range will be less. However perhaps you or your partner have been sleep driving ????

Hopefully now we are out of winter things have improved? As stated above temperature is a factor.
