    I love my 2017 Prius Prime. It always charged to 25+ miles of battery miles, but this winter it now only fully charges to about 19 miles. I'm quite disappointed and the dealer says everything tests OK. I have 35,000 miles on it. Anyone else have a similar problem?

    This is a Cold Weather related problem, when the your 24 hour weather cycle hits 70+ F, you'll see it go back to normal.

    OK, Bisco, what are you smokin'? :D

    @Rob43 has probably nailed it. Colder weather will put the bite on EV range. Tire pressures and higher speed driving will also eat up the electrons. And one hard stop will cost you a mile of range or more.

    Actually Western Europe: Madrid to be exact:).

    This was a reschedule as we were supposed to go to Shanghai and visit my brother;).

    But those plans changed:cool:.

    Since the in-laws agreed to watch the kids, we kept their promise and went to Spain instead(y).
