Hybrid Eco Pro is the best overall really for economy though, although it does dumb a few things down a bit (including throttle response).
Two reasons for saving juice. First, if you are going to be driving into an area with a mandatory congestion zone; second, if you are going to be parked outside for a lengthy time when it is very hot or very cold so you want to save some juice to use the phone app to climatize the car. I do that in the summer in Arizona; save some juice when I am going golfing and take out my phone after the 17th hole and turn on the AC; by the time I get to the car it is comfortable despite temperatures around 110F.

I have the ability to use a 240 volt charger in my garage. So when I am doing local trips, I often set the car at electric drive and then just plug it back in when I get home.

Yeah that all makes sense. We donít have congestion zones here in Scotland (yet) - and sadly our temperatures VERY rarely require a precool 😂

I think the range isnít simply a last trip average consumption math. I see that having very similar last trip average, if I pick up the car when i use to make the least efficient trip it tells me a shorter range.

So there might be some pattern recognition and depending on the location&time it guesses where you might go next and your expected consumption.

... or maybe not.

Hey there, sorry to jump in,
I'm considering the new 330e, currently have the F30 version and love it!

Is Xtraboost mode needs to be specifically activated, or if you just floor iti in sports mode it's activated automatically? Thank you
