Default Battery Range indication

Does anybody know that issue? It happened twice last week that I was driving home on pure electric. The range indication showed me about 10 miles left and suddenly the indications started to count very rapidly down to zero within a few seconds. The engine started at zero so I made may way home. The total distance driven on electric was far under 50 miles. Wondering if somebody had the same issue and what helped.
Thanks for feedback.

You have a bad module in the high voltage battery . I can rebuild the battery depending where you live .

Ok thanks. That's not too much. How many modules are in the whole battery (I just outed myself as a complete newcomer in the electric car world :-)

Thank you all guys
It becomes worse: today I had only 73Km reach indication when I started the car instead of the normal 81 and at 15Km in the evening the indication started to count down to zero again. I am a little worried because the guy who sold me the car said that he had no problem at all for one year and 15'000Km and I have such problems now after three weeks I'm owning the car :-(

Check with Emil Frey in Switzerland - they have someone who can replace your bad module with good one from defunct battery. In some European countries Emil Frey still provides warranty repairs.
