Has anyone noticed that the conversion factor VW uses for miles/kwh to km/kwh is wrong?

My long-term consumption is shown as 7.5km/kwh, but when I switch to imperial it is shown as 4.4miles/kwh.

7.5 divided by 1.609344 (the correct conversion for km to miles) would equal 4.66 miles/kwh.

So which figure is correct?!
