What is your drive profil ... ?
75 miles = 120 km.

Same here,
First 9 months I was getting 105 miles per charge.
Now 18 months later I'm getting 75 miles per charge. That's a big drop off. I'm bringing my car into dealer to get it looked at for the second time. Good thing is that I have on record that a year ago I was getting 104 miles on charge so I can force them to do something about it. They say it's all fine but not really.

At about 5500 miles mine dropped from 105 to 99, now at 8900 miles I'm at 93 miles. What the heck is going on? So I needbro take it in for this?

I bought my Tesla same time last year and put more miles on it. At full charge range is still same as when I just bought it. Have lost 0% range now at 10,000 miles and 20 months later. Maybe Kia Soul EV battery is low quality?

The projected range on a full charge correlates in large part to recent driving efficiency. What Energy Consumption values are you seeing in your car's ECO Driving > Driving History screen?

I mentioned this in another recent thread, but there several factors that determine the predicted range that you see displayed -- state of charge, heating/air conditioning use, exterior temperature... but the most significant is your recent driving efficiency. Even if charged to 100% each night, your predicted range may vary from day to day depending on how efficiently you drove the day before.

Your car tracks energy consumption cumulatively. The only reliable way to see your recent efficiency is to reset the calculation via a button on the steering wheel (I do that each morning out of habit). I'll try to find photos that illustrate this point.
