I know I have seen comments on this, but no resolution? Some of us are happy to extrapolate total kWh in battery after a partial recharge. But not all drivers. If you have a mountain up return trip, the H.M,L mileage predictors are near useless. How hard can it be to add the recharge number to the ongoing monitor? Anyone out there have an info?

I'm not quite understanding what you're looking for. Doesn't the battery capacity gauge (the alternating light and slightly darker green bars) on the left side of the instrument cluster do what you want? Each bar represents 5% of the battery's capacity or about 3kWh.

I do math, not all my drivers do. There is a good current usage screen on the main screen. Shows kWh used and miles driven. It should update the current capacity after a partial charge.

I'm still not quite getting the issue. If, for example, your drivers need to know that they have at least 25% battery remaining at a certain point, how is that different than knowing they need at least 5 bars showing on the meter? It seems to me that if it needs to be more accurate than to the nearest 5% then you're getting into pretty marginal territory in terms of the certainty of being able to go the distance.
