I am only getting 16/17 miles range from a fully charged battery on electric only range. Is this normal? I was expecting it to be nearer 25-28. I don't use any heaters etc and drive economically. Any suggestions on what to do or how to improve this? I have owned the car for a month now and I did get 22 at the beginning. It is a 65 plate car. Thanks
Have a look at the Nissan Leaf main dealer site they have chart you just put in your speed, heater outside temperature and it will show you an estimated range.
The Outlander PHEV battery is most efficient at 25 degree C, the warmer of colder it gets the less efficiency. In the summer we were achieving 34/35 miles, if we travelled at 55 mph on the motorway to the daughter we achieved about 30, increase the same journey to 60 mph it dropped to 27/28 miles.
This time of the year at 5/7 degree C we are seeing around 24/25 miles driving around and 20 miles with the heating on.
