Great find with this test.
Guys, we expected the "new" cars to pass 84 miles in Phoenix. We used that number to align with Nissan's data, and our over one year old 21kWh baseline (and Nissan's, too, effective Dec 2011).
I fully expected any car with 2600 feet air density, and 80F batteries would be 86-89 miles, which I would just call 104% (for 87.5 miles). But, of course, the car that went 59 mile is only 67% of 87.5 miles, and with 8 of 12 capacity bar segments is 60-66%.
I think we did well.
