Hi Everyone.
I am new to the forum and new to EV. 
I was wondering how much EV range people are actually getting from their C-Max Energi. 

Here is my story...
Bought a 2016 Energi a couple of months ago for my wife and she drove it for a month before it was totaled...Were getting 20+ miles on EV now.
Once it was declared totaled we got another one - this one was a 2015 but supposedly exactly the same (with some extra features actually).

On the new one I would start the day with the car showing I have 21 miles (or 23) but by looking at the driving logs we end up getting 18 miles give or take.
Anyone has any advise or can shed a light on what you are getting or similar issues etc?

Thanks a lot!

the weather will have an effect but I am willing to put my money on tires, check if they low rolling resistance and check your pressure

I get anywhere from about 13 to 20 miles.  But I've never had it entirely in a nice 30mph area on a warm day.  Then it could go higher.  I'm always dealing with hills, higher speeds, possibly snow and sometimes the heater.  Those all take down the mileage very quickly.

The estimated miles are just that - rough estimates based on the last driving experience, multipled by the charge held in the battery.  There are three major variables that affect actual EV miles - primary is your driving style, factoring in acceleration, average cruising speed and braking.  Second is battery capacity which will fall as battery ages.  My 2013 NRG delivered 5.8 kWh when new, now around 4.3 kWh after 3 years.  About right for Li-On batteries, expect around 5-10% capacity loss per year with about 1 complete charge a day.  The last is air temperature - battery does best at 72 degrees F, will deliver less at higher and lower temperatures.  Right now with city driving around 35 MPH I expect around 16 miles EV only, down on same route from 22 when new.  Still running around 80MPG combined EV and ICE in city, around 40 MPG highway at 70MPH.

When temps are in the 40's I get around 20-21. In the summer I get around 27 miles. It doesn't get that cold in LA.

Like everyone says, depends on the temperature and also your driving score and how you brake, speed, etc.  If you maximize it as best as possible which is what I try to do:

 

1) I get 21-22 miles during the winter cold months worst case scenario (from -10F to +10F range with no climate usage), or about 127 MPGe.

2) I get 29-33 miles during the summer best range when the temp is in the mid 70's, or about 210MPGe (again, no climate usage or AC in this case).  AC you lose about 3 miles range from the entire battery charge.

 

The above assumes your battery is still good and can deliver not degraded.
