Have you noticed how unrealistic the range estimate in Lucids? It appears that Lucid is using the EPA rated consumption of 4.7 miles/kWh (in my car after charging to 80%, the car shows range of 344 miles. 344/(92x0.8)=4.67.) I am in the Chicago area, so now in winter I get about 2.7 m/kWh, according to my measurements in "Trip A or B" and estimate since last charge. What Lucid should do is keep a running average of consumption over the last 50 miles and use this number to multiply by kWh for range estimate. I believe that this is what GM does because range estimate in GM cars has been remarkably accurate.
