Why is 85% battery recommended as the normal maximum?

I Charge once a week to 100% - the range goes up everytime I charger her - now around 265 miles on a full charge. First charge was 200 miles!
Whaaa? Can anyone explain this?
One factor is that regen is disabled when the car is new. From the Good to Know app: "In order to bed in the wheel brake, the recuperation system is deactivated briefly on new vehicles or after changing the brake pads and this reduces range."

The initial range of the BC is very conservative, allowing lots of fun driving without range dissapointment. Over time, the BC calculates expected range based on previous driving style and resulting trip consumption.
