2013 500e is my only car, since 2015
!!! Mine is now almost TEN years old and it seems that the battery capacity is going strong! Only 24kWh battery & it's still good for 154 km on a fresh charge when I tested it recently with 50,000 km.Mine is now almost 2,5 years and it seems that the battery capacity is going downhill.
Many 1st-gen users have thought their battery capacity was going down, but they were just being fooled by the car's % gauge going out of calibration, reading lower than it really is at the bottom. One user's gauge showed 0% when there was still 20% left, so he thought his range was 20% less, since he had no idea the car was fooling him by hiding the range from view.
