Pretty typical results. You'll see about 20-30% less range during the winter months, compounded by temperatures. Depending on where you live this can be at the "worse end" if you park outside and if you precondition a lot w/o being plugged in. It is always going to benefit you to pre-warm the cabin on "Shore power" since so much of the first 5mins of driving is bad range trying to heat up the cabin. Running a lower ambient temp (66F instead of 72F) and using the heated seats/steering will also improve overall efficiency -- but that is not ideal for most people.

Results in link above mimic my past EV experience, which is dominated by Tesla products, but includes competitors. At the end of the day even with these 200-250 mile EVs, you should still get 140-150 miles of "Real world" range in the winter, which for most people on most days is enough -- so, run the heat, make yourself comfortable, and dont dwell on it too much ;)
