Range of 62 miles on a 15 KwH battery pack... If true they are leaving no extra buffer on the upper or lower end of the SOC and I don't expect the battery to last nearly as long as the Volt without degrading.

It's a concept car that MIGHT be ready in 2019. What do you think GM, Tesla, Nissan, and others will be making by then?

Most likely it is European rating. Ampera, which is Volt 1, has like 50 mile range (up to 50 miles) in Europe.
That may be part of it, but the Ampera with a 16 KW battery got 50 miles, this thing with a 15 KW battery gets 62 miles range... just saying I wouldn't want to purchase a used one after a few years and lots of miles :)

American cars have additional safety features that weigh a lot, and I believe the Ampera shares those safety features. If these Turkish cars skimp on those safety features, they can easily strip several hundred pounds off the weight, which will also increase the range.
