2023 Subaru Solterra with Technology Package, Platinum White with Two-Tone Black Roof
Seems Toyota has sent out a letter indicating some changes. Positive sign Toyota/Subaru is listening and are taking some action.
Two immediate changes
Toyota has always said that the matter is a top priority for the company, and today at 1 p.m. they sent out an email to their customers, making in-depth comments and suggestions for action for the first time. Initially, two changes are outlined. The first is to release more of the large buffer at the bottom, which will mean that more of the available range will appear on the range meter. In addition, you will be able to see the residual capacity as a percentage.
The letter states the following:
"The battery in the bZ4X has a relatively high residual capacity after the display shows 0 kilometers. The buffer is at least eight percent of the battery capacity and is included in the stated range calculation (WLTP). We understand that this is not in line with the expectations of customers, and we are now studying a change that better visualizes the available range for the driver, as well as the display in the car of the current capacity stated as a percentage. The changes will be made available in the future and we will inform customers as soon as they are implemented."
