Gids are a fixed value so it indicates the amount of kWh the battery contains at that moment. The SOC value is the percentage of what the battery can hold, so a 90% SOC in a degraded battery has fewer kWh than a 90% SOC in a new battery.
Uh-oh, math. Hope I don't pop a blood vessel.
Going electric has been a gigantic adjustment, especially for an old fossilized brain like mine. ICEs are mechanically far more complex, but there's none of this Wh/mi vs mi/kWh and range being relative to the phase of the moon and your magnetic variation. Miles traveled / gallons used = mpg, done and dusted. Average mpg * tank capacity = range, ditto.
