I have a 2017 BOLT and find following highway use, a charge caps at 80%. Following local/city driving / more economical use, the resulting charge gives back the energy I saved in city driving. Slowly. Am I being punished for highway driving- forever, on my new March 2022 battery ? Hilltop Reserve not on.
When you'll understand that the range isn't a function of the battery pack, you'll have the answer to your question.
The range of ANY EV is dependent of the following factors :
1. Terrain (elevation and surface)
2. Temperature (wind, snow, rain, cold, hot)
3. Type of driving (speedy, slow, fast accelerations, slow accelerations, hard stops, slow stops)
All these 3 factors together define the "efficiency" of a car.
If you happen to use ABRP app, you will see that the Bolt EV is rated for 18.5 Wh/km at a speed of 110 km/h. This means that for a 66 kWh battery, you can drive about 320 km at 110 km/h on a flat road with optimal weather conditions.
When you plan a trip in ABPR you'll see the efficiency per the trip once all things are computed. End of class.
