Mine was at the same speed. Today I used 5 bars from a 100% charge, and still fluctuated between 78 and 82 miles projected range (ok I DO practice driving on the 'thrifty' side
) remaining, by the time I took this pic. From prior/similar remaining charge states, I estimate I'd go another 60-70 miles before power reduction mode. I'm REALLY hoping I'll get a chance to (purposefully) burn through an entire 100% charge. Still, as you alude, it all turns on whether one starts gunning it, using AC, maintaining high vs low speed, driving up grades, etc.
I'm finding that we have about a 10% combined efficiency loss ( off the 5.5 mile/kWh car reading) from our 240V charging and DC-AC solar inverters ... which would leave us with just a tad under 5miles/kWh ... and at least 10 miles per bar average, when driving level ground, off freeway, no climate control.
