Re: Actual Range

In miles, I see it vary from 67 to 97, depending on the outside temperature (temps 27*F-90*F).

Re: Auto locking of charging cable

As stated by SiLiZiUMM...
I have found if you lock the doors first, the port is not locked, but it usually cuts off charging after a few minutes.

My wife frequently went out to a low battery (no charging had taken place) until I had her stop locking the doors first. Problem disappeared.
