Typical weather is more like 40-50F around this time of year. Not sure what else I can share that would be relevant... we drive the car pretty evenly split between urban/suburban/country driving and try to stay off the highway, that probably also factors in to the GOM number?
I'm guessing just being gentle on the accel/brake pedals whenever possible has the greatest impact on actual range.
Our Leaf was built on 11/16 so maybe we're getting a few extra miles from the battery still being just a few months old.
Thank you again for the reply. It is around or below freezing here right now. Enjoying the pre-heat feature. Ours was built in 4/2016. My guess is the range on the GOM will vary with the temperature. It does on our smart ED electric for sure. Time will tell. So much to learn yet.
Enjoy your day.
