What I thought was interesting was "actual range as percentage of advertised". Niro the clear winner, at 91 percent. Leaf was I think second at around 85%. Does make ya wonder- why are NONE of them getting what they advertise? at about 42 degrees, should not be using much heat.....
Haven't watched the video yet but 42 F is cold and will require using the power pig heaters.
About "advertised", please see the following regarding EPA tests:

I looked at the beginning of the video and saw a curious figure of 292 miles for i-Pace. That's the WLTP rating. We don't use that here. EPA range rating is 234 miles for i-Pace: https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find.do ... 3&id=39860
. I don't know any details about the WLTP test but they're clearly inflated vs. EPA range ratings. Example is https://insideevs.com/news/335878/2018- ... ltp-cycle/
. '18 Leaf gets 151 miles on EPA range test vs. 168 or 177 miles combined on WLTP. At least WLTP isn't as inflated as NEDC.
Back in 2013, the '13 Leaf could achieve 84 miles on a full charge on the EPA test (https://insideevs.com/news/317213/2013- ... gs-system/
) but the Nissan exec at https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=304180#p304180
(video is dead now) said 200 km (124 miles). Apparently, that was the NEDC rating.
