2014 Volt - REduced EV range

Hi all
I'm new here and this is my first post.
I bought a used 2014 Volt in June and imported it to Iceland, Europe. When I got it the EV range was around 40 miles. In the beginning of October the range started to gradually degrade and is now 26 miles. Has anyone experienced something like this? Can I somehow check the battery cell status myself? Since it's imported from the US I'm not sure the local dealer is willing to help. The car is kept inside overnight so it's not because of the colder weather.

Thanks for all you replies, I really like this forum. My concern is that I charge the car inside in ~68°F. When it's fully charged, 10 bars the range shows around 26 miles.
I understand it will degrade based on temperature and weather as well.

Thanks all for very good replies. After I learned the range is an estimate based on previous use it all clears up. It's colder now. My wife uses the heater a lot and the car is kept outside during the day. In addition I have studded tires and only 38 PSI (read that some people go up to 50 PSI) :)
It is, relatively. Smallish place, surrounded by a warm-water current. It's just at about the same latitude as Denali, which is about half way to the North Pole from what you and I consider normal.
LOL, it's all warm and green during the summer :) Never very hot but never very cold either. Today it's around 39-48h °F
