I tried last month when it was in for warranty work....they said some newer models needed a bmu reset under warranty but mine wasn't it so they wouldn't do it

Re: 2016 37k Miles Battery Health

Hi, ... Browsing around the forums, I am struggling to work out if 88% is an acceptable ammount of SOH remaining for a battery of this age, and also if any of the BMU reset methods people are using would actually make any difference to my battery, or if it would just reset the numbers for a coupld ...

Re: 2016 37k Miles Battery Health

Also it is not fair to compare a BEV where you charge it up and then discharge whilst driving before recharging, with the PHEV which features the frequent charge/discharge cycling when running the ICE. Also the PHEV has more complete charge/discharge cycles over the same period than a BEV = and we ...

Re: 2016 37k Miles Battery Health

People are forgetting that 100% is a nominal figure. A car straight from the showroom (old type), would typically show 37 Ah instead of the nominal 40. So take your base as 37.5. When new, I would normally get about 36-37 km for my daily commute out of the battery at this time of year. Now, after s...

Re: Stolen Charger

Re: 2016 37k Miles Battery Health

If it helps, I bought a late 2015 about this time last year and it had 85% so I feel like it's reasonable to have 88%. You will get slightly better mileage on EV as you get used to it but unfortunately 20 miles range isn't unreasonable this time of year. I'd say preserve the battery as best you can ...

You absolute star, perfect timing - thank you.
