you didn't test a Tesla? It can display SOC% (but only by replacing the remaining range with the SOC%).

A setting changes range remaining to SoC

I forgot to look carefully when I test drove the Fiat 500e in the past but it looks it that car has it: https://www.allpar.com/cars/adopted/fiat/500e.html.

Bolt unfortunately for some stupid reason doesn't but the % SoC can be viewed via the My Chevrolet app, which is slow to update unless connected via KeyPass (near/in the car). Someone (here, I think) pointed out the KeyPass fact to me and also that the value can be displayed on the large LCD when connected via CarPlay.

From the gallery at https://www.smartusa.com/models/eq-pure-coupe, the gen 2 Smart ForTwo ED has it, as well. From https://www.greencarreports.com/news/10 ... n-the-road, looks like the previous gen had it, as well.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
