Hi, there is a used focus electric we are thinking of buying. On a full battery charge according to the specs it is supposed to get 110 miles. We went to test drive and the dealer said they just charged it. I think it’s just been sitting in the lot. The battery indicates that it is about 90% charged but says the budget is only 57 miles. The salesperson says the budget is based on previous driving history. But it seems too low to me. If it was previous driving history the person would have had to have been driving very badly to make the budget 57 miles when it indicates it is almost fully charged right? We used to own a 2015 focus electric so I am kind of familiar with this car. Every morning on a full charge our 2015 would indicate 85 miles as a full charge and as the day progressed the budget would adjust according to how we were driving it.
Do you think there is something wrong with the battery of this car we are thinking of getting? Or is there an explanation or is my memory of how the battery indicator works wrong?
Thanks for your advice.
