    I believe those to likely be conservative ballpark numbers. Because it’s always best to under-promise. Bare in mind that there will be other variables which will impact range. An all-wheel drive version will consume more electricity than a 2-wheel-drive one. So, a 2-wheel-drive one will likely rive a further distance than what is advertised to allow for the all-wheel one to achieve the stated objective. Also, if you are using an off-road package it will lower your range. Given the already light weight of the car, if the car is driven by a petite person and their purse it will have a longer range than if driven by a sumo wrestler and their giant duffel bag. Temperatures that are too hot or too cols will also lower range. And, as I saw a certain person on this forum inquiring on whether or not one can drive with the camper package on … well, I would expect that to severely dampen the range. lol
