It depends on your driving style and the weather (temperature ) it’s predicted range based on how you’ve been driving — I get 172 miles on mine currently as I’ve been driving in a less than range-conscious way…

As rdrdrd states, in my limited experience so far hugely dependant on driving style, weather and heating / AC requirements.
I’ve had mine for about 2 weeks and best range I’ve had on a motorway trip (Ave 70mph / not exceeding 75) was reporting around 184m @ 100% SoC. The trip was 160m and at the end I had 37m range left iirc.
I’m hoping for better range as the UK weather gets better!
There’s another thread on here somewhere about real time range calcs, if you have your m/kWh on display you will get a good steer on the range you can expect, I’m seeing 2.5m/kWh so which would range out at 80(kWh battery) x 2.5 (m/kWh) or 200 miles. (Apologies if that’s old news / already known!)
Other posters in warmer climes are reporting higher m/kWh that are closer to (or occasionally exceed) MB range figures

As said above the range shown depends on previous consumption. Your consumption is of course variable depending on route, temperature driving style, etc etc. I personally only look at the amount of battery ie SOC and knowing the journey if a regular route I can guage the likely % SOC when I finish pretty accurately now after 4k km. Certainly colder weather hurts efficiency but in the milder months I was reguarly beating the WLTP figs on certain routes. I would say I live in Normandie and trafic is light with a speed limit of 90k max so driving is smooth.
I always use d auto as well.
I reccomend the mercedes eco coach app for helping acquire good driving habits and also good advice re charging the battery. You can earn points too for use on your mercedes me account or to offset carbon via mercedes sponsored carbon projects.

Hi
Could you give details of the app you mentioned above, only can't find it here in the UK
Thanks in advance
Here is a link to the press release
I was able to download it from the Apple Store I think I may have followed the link from Mercedes’ me home page if you scroll down you get various info boxes and the last one is Mercedes’ apps suitable for your vehicle and it is there.
It has been recently updated and now also tells you the no of kWh you have used over 5 days or 5 weeks or 5 mths so I have used 985kwh since I got the car in sept. Why sets of 5 am not sure 🤔
I would assume you could get it unless there are data protection issues following on from Brexit. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Let us know if you can download it.

Doesn’t seem to be available in the UK App Store, however there is something on the MBUX that monitors throttle, coasting and even driving styles letting you know how many additional miles you gain. Not sure it’s quite the same at the app you describe though.

I am so surprised that UK users cannot access the app as it really is interesting it makes no sense why unless it is a GDPR issue though if mercedes me is working I cannot see this is much different but I am not a data protection specialist🤷‍♀️ Having the total amount of kwh consumed is proving very useful for me at the moment as I am considering going to a tri phase set up as when the car is plugged in my house system can get up to a 13kva draw when my supply is only 12kva (herein france you pay for a supply up to a max level and if your system uses more the main disjoncteur will trip.) Looking at the car data with the supply data from the grid is helping me plan a bit more and decide whether to invest now or wait before moving to tri phase (needed for the next level up of 15kva max supply) which could deliver up to 22kw charge. Given my car will only accept 11kw ac it is probably not worth it for that reason but maybe future cars will accept a higher charge.
Back to the app maybe owners need to raise this with mercedes UK and see if they can get it switched on?
