Interesting video, only in Dutch. After SoC is zero only 14 km left before the car really stops.
Same for Volvo P8 and ID.4.

Total range is 315 km for P2 under more or less normal winter conditions in NL.
Range of ID.4 quote disappointing given the larger capacity and WLTP.

Seems like all these EVs coalesce around a similar real world range despite different sizes/shapes/Cd/power/etc.... Like they know they have to advertise 300 mi/500 km, but really make sure they will actually get around 200 mi/300 km or people will be really pissed.

Problem is once this becomes common knowledge, everyone will know they have another few % below zero ... so it won't do the job it's designed to do which is to protect idiots from going below really low SOC

My primary takeaway from the last several years is that there's only so much you can do to prevent an idiot from being an idiot

Is that like how the Force creates a Sith/Jedi if one dominates?
