Car has 140k on the odometer. Currently a full 100% charge will report 83km range on the screen. Driving conservatively I'd say I am able to get 100km or so.
Some readings from SoulEVSpy:
Min Cell Det %: 19.1
Max Cell Det %: 36.3
SOH was 93.4% (Min Det: 0, Max Det: 33.2) 4 days ago before I started to drive it to work each day this week. I assume the min cell % was wrong at that point for some reason.
When I check the battery cell heat map after arriving home from my 35km commute I see:
7 cells @ 3.64v
36 cells @ 3.66v
51 cells @ 3.68v
3 cells @ 3.62v
1 cell @ 3.60
and 1 cell @ 3.58v

So this morning for the first time my GOM read over 100km estimated range with 100% charge (101km). Outside temp. is 9c.
I've been adjusting my driving habits to better suit the car and this has been consistently increasing my range over time. My commutes to/from work are generally 15.1 - 15.5 kWh/100km now which seems pretty low to me.
This mornings readings from SoulEVSpy:
Max cell det.: 38.9%
Min cell det.: 18.9%
SOH: 81.01% (this has been dropping slightly each time I check it).
Mileage is now 145138km.
GOM range has been dropping a bit and now getting 90-100km with similar temps and conditions as last post.
Max cell det. is now: 42.6%
Min cell det. is now: 0.8%
SOH: 66% (using latest SoulSpy app with improved SOH formula).
Question is should I file for a warranty replacement now or wait another month or so to see if gets even worse (which I expect it will with colder temps approaching)?
