This is again another review or test drive without prior knowledge on EV range. Please check Bjorn excel that several factors could influence the range. For example if this range is with AWD , 20 inch wheels , winter condition and in highway(120KM/H) . Then it is par with most of the long range EVs Tesla Model 3 Performance (339 km), Jaguar I-Pace 90 kWh (263 KM), Tesla Model X P90DL (313 KM), Polestar 2 (305 KM), Volvo XC40 78 kWh AWD (224 KM), VW ID4 1st 82 kWh (297) . Few of the above ranges are even taken in summer!! Please check the below link available for public.

The test from the Norwegian site consisted of 25% highway, 70% country roads, and 5% urban. They tested a model that is supposed to have 470 km WLTP. They tested with 18 inch winter tires. The temperature in one of the screenshots was 8 degrees celsius / 46.4F and they stated the same. Not the warmest of days obviously, but still relatively mild for this time of year in Norway. Dry roads and eco mode activated for climate controls during the second test.

I think it's generally understood that most cars do not match their WLTP rating and range drops as the temperature drops, but the difference is pretty large. Have you guys checked the website? They seem to do a lot of testing.

The test has actually been updated now to include that Toyota Norway is aware of the test and has promised to get back to them after they have taken it up with Toyota Motor Europe.
Could you please share the link ?
