The "guessometer" will only show an approximate estimate based on your driving before. Having the airconditioning switched on will show an even lower alledged range.
The best way to get some idea about the real range is getting experience with the behaviour of the charge level meter.
The car is very sensitive to driving style in its electricity consumption.


I would add some words : Having the air-conditioning switched on will show an even lower alledged range, in a very pessimistic manner.

And the car is of course very sensitive not only to driving style but to driving conditions too. For example I can reach -in summer- 50 km in EV mode very easily between 70 to 90 kph with a few stops, but it's extremely hard to reach 45 km at max 50 kph in the urban traffic with a lot of stop and go at lights etc ... even with an eco driving style.

Got a recall from the swedish dealer stating I must get the car to a garage to get the ECU and plugs swapped.

Anyone heard what the cause is? What will change?

Looks like it. Thanks.

I would really like to know more though. Maybe a call to the local dealer would shed some light.......

That recall has been suspended here:

Someone had it done and it didn't go well......

my car has had the recall security patch applied and it was after this patch that i starred getting errors and the car started to behave strangely. lucky i took photos of the errors as they where random and i could not recreate them.

now my car is still at the service center. i was told that japan is looking into it. it might be a new ECU, but at this point im not sure what will happen. it is thought that the software patch has caused the errors and so this might be why they might have suspended the recall.

Where is "here" ?

You got a patch, not a new ECU ?

Really sounds like I'd better call the local dealer and see what they think...

Oho!

I've been having problems since a software update (before the recall) I wonder if this is related to your experience?

Can you provide any more information about the odd errors?

I'm about to take my car to it's first MOT.

Emissions should be no problem since they can read fault codes via OBD. Correct?
I don't want them to try to start the engine and getting it warm at the station...

Brakes. Can anything get damaged if they do the normal brake tests?

If that were the case you would have had a crumpled front end long before.

Hmmm, dunno about Sweden, but I can't imagine any MOT testing station in Britain issuing a certificate without starting the engine!
