So, I have a question about the use of CC and any drop in RR. Is this immediate drop in RR pretty much the only alarming thing I should see? Is the i-MiEV somehow calculating the estimated reduction in range and taking the number right off the top? Or will I see both that immediate drop in range AND an exponentially greater decrease in my range as I continue to drive and use the CC?
Robb, your 10 mile RR redux is exactly what most of us have seen, it will stick, and I'll say you won't see further penalties. I'm using air conditioning or heat unless I need to go farther than about 45 miles.
