Difference between estimated battery miles and actual charge status

So I've had my 2019 Niro LX for a couple of weeks now...and I'm wondering why there is such a difference between the battery range gauge on the dashboard and the (apparent) actual battery charge level? I drive 19 miles to work each day. When I get to work, the dashboard gauge says I have about 6-7 miles left on battery power. That seems reasonable and in line with the estimated 26 miles max on battery power alone. But if I go to the menu showing the battery charge level, it says I have about 50% power left, and when I plug into our Level 2 charger at work, the battery is recharged to 100% in about an hour and 20 minutes. That's quite a discrepancy. Is there a simple explanation, or is there something miscalibrated in my electronics that should be corrected by Kia?
