Best range I've seen after a full (100%) charge is 462 km.
Best range after a hilltop reserve charge is 425 km. But it's usually in the high 300s, around 370 to 390 km.
I don't often charge to full, but I did take my car in for the battery update recently and charged to ful before doing so. This is after driving to the dealership, 265 miles of range after driving 11.1 miles, for a total of 276.1 miles (444 km).

(You might also be able to figure out why I usually use Hilltop Reserve).

Hang on, were we talking predicted range or achieved range?

In the Greater Toronto Area myself, now that the weather has warmed, I've been averaging 11.6 kw /100. Last week was the first time I resolved myself to driving the entire commute week without charging. I finished after travelling 338km, with 194 left on the GOM. ( I completely forgot to check the actual battery percentage).

lately, after a full charge, the GOM will indicate a range in the low 500's. Depth of winter was frequently ~280. I do NOT run Hilltop Reserve.

It's unlikely I'll have any desire, or requirement for that matter, to push it much farther. 6 months and a bit into the Bolt, it seems to be meeting expectations.

In addition to charging the traction pack to full, I'm putting my battery maintainer on the aux battery the night before too.:nerd:

Over the past 12.5 months I have averaged 4.4 mi/kWh, which translates into 264 miles or 423 km/charge. Click on my badge below to see the mi/kWh statistics :)
Changing that 4.4 mi/kWh to Metric will give 7 km/kWh or 7 m/Wh. This will eventually replace the useless MPGe that GM and other EV manufacturers are still using. Since we pay by kW,, it becomes easy to calculate the true cost per km as a comparative value between EVs.
