Can't speak for 4xe (yet) but our Pacifica Hybrid is greatly affected by temperatures. In Jan-March (we had a very cold March) we are lucky to get 22-24 miles on pure EV of the 35 mile range. Since it hit the 70's we are getting closer to 38 EV miles. It's a big difference. We also are not running heated seats, steering wheel, heater, etc. and just light A/C.

Guessing 4xe will be similar and will really do well when it is not too hot or too cold.

It has an electric heater and air conditioner.

Even here I was getting a 40% reduction in range during the winter with my 500e
I'd be thrilled to see that reduction for some relief. It would drop the AC bill at least. This whole winter in Florida was misserably hot. Can't imagine how bad the summer is going to be.

How well does the 4xe hold its charge?
ie if you were to drive once every 3-4 days, and not plugging in, would you still get 15-20 miles range?

Interesting question. I'm guessing the very large majority of us are plugging in daily with either level 1 or level 2 charging. I know there is one person, who has posted, that is in an apartment complex, so they may have an answer.

It appears to calculate range by battery state of charge x recent mi/kWh figure for your driving style/speed etc.

This method is very common in the industry and seems to be the most reasonable method. A fully charged battery in the 4xe is about the same as a half gallon of gasoline. (0.43 gallons to be exact...) If you look at it that way......then your Jeep is getting over 60 miles per gallon of energy under those driving conditions. Pretty nice. :)

However, as electrified vehicles become more normal.....we are going to stop talking about miles/gallon equivalent (MPGe) and migrate to a mi/kWh figure instead. You are getting about 2 miles/kWh. My Focus Electric averages 4.0. My Mach-E averages about 3.5. When the BEV Wrangler becomes available for sale we might be lucky to see 3.0 mi/kWh. (this last sentence is just a guess though......)
our RAV4 Prime is getting 3.0-3.2 mi/kWh

Unless you have heated seats then it isn't that big of a penalty. Depending on how cold it gets of course. Here in AZ, heated seats used in tandem with departure time pre-conditioning goes a long way to minimizing range loss during winter driving.

Does the 4xe have a PTC resistive type heater? And can it be turned off?
"Preconditioning" itself drains battery.

In any case, I'm not sure AZ, except for a few higher elevations, is a good example of "winter driving."

Not if it is plugged in to L2 EVSE.
L1 maybe.......but L2 is capable of delivering enough energy so the vehicle doesn't need to draw from the HVB.

You're 100% correct. I should have been more specific.

Cheers!
