Yes, though the 2018+ models are far less susceptible to that kind of range inflation. They significantly changed the algorithm behind the GOM, and it is far more accurate than before.
Good to hear.
My wife still finds it unsettling to charge up to 80% in our 24 kWh battery LEAF, drive 5 miles to the gym and upon return find the GOM at 40 miles even though the battery sits at 12 bars of capacity (though admittedly not for long.) My explanation that the GOM is relying on the trip home with its 1000 ft climb is accepted ... sort of. She only really forgave the LEAF after I convinced her to ignore the GOM and rely on the SoC.
