    Close to buying M3 LR - Cold Weather Questions

    I am about to pull the trigger on a Model 3 Long Range, but I'm a little concerned about cold weather. I spend 4 nights/wk at home where I would have a charger installed, so I'm not concerned there. The other 3 nights I spend up in Northern New England at my ski place. The condo building I'm in...

    M3 LR Real World Range

    I am interested to get a few responses from owners on here as to the real world typical range of a M3 LR. I completely understand that like ICE vehicles, it varies depending on acceleration and so on. Part of the reason I ask this is I live in Lincolnshire, and sometimes travel to Torbay...

    Improving the Model 3 Aerodynamics (for range)?

    The Model 3 is already an incredibly aerodynamic car, but I wonder what improvements might be possible? Unplugged Performance claims a 21% reduction with their mods (front and rear spoilers, lowering), but I'm highly skeptical (eps since it has been available for a few years and I don't see any...

    2021 Model Y long range real world range

    I have been driving Model Y in Alberta, Canada for last 2 months. I mostly drive on highways ranging from 110 to 120kmph speed on cruise control. I have been getting the range around 400km per full battery charging equivalent. On colder days like today (-13 c) even less. Tesla says it’s because...

    So i’m looking to get into a model 3 long range, I’m specifically gunning for the ≈350 mile range version. I know the 2021 has the better range, but what about 2020? 2019? and how can i determine which battery a car has without going there in person and checking the range? and the premium...

    My range increased!!

    My range increased from 335 miles to 370 miles! It’s great but I don’t know how or why! About a week ago I noticed as I was charging at home, it allowed me to charge up to 369 miles! Ever since I’m able to charge to this higher amount like it a permanent increase in range. The Tesla tech...

    Mercedes EQS reviews published - longest range and most luxurious ride of all EVs?

    I hope that the thread title isn't seen as a deliberate provocation. It isn't meant to be. It simply intends to point out the main objectives Mercedes has concentrated on. Last night Mercedes lifted an embargo on the publication of reviews of the production version and the reviews are all over...

    Tesla Y Road Trip Experience and Tips

    I just completed my first road trip from San Diego to Dallas and back again taking different routes. Each way the trip was done in 3 days with an average of 4-7 hours of driving a day. This drive occurred while temperatures in the Southwest soared to as high as 117. I found the supercharger...

    First Desert Road Trip

    I am taking my first out-of-town trip since getting my 2021 Standard Range Plus in April, so of course I have range anxiety! It’s a just a short 140 mile trip from Phoenix to Flagstaff, Arizona and according to ABRP, I should be able to do it without stopping to charge at all. However, I’m...

    Battery Range for Perf Model Y with 19” Wheels

    Hi, I have a 2021 Performance Model Y and replaced factory 21” Wheels with 19” Wheels from T-sportsline. I changed the wheel size settings in the car to 19” Gemini and rebooted. It still shows max range is approx 300 miles at 100% charge on the battery meter. Should that now have updated to...

    How to display rated range at 100% without charging to 100%?

    Is there an easy way, without charging to 100%, to display the 100% rated or ideal range? I'm asking because I don't want to ask dealers to charge to 100%, and some dealers don't know the UI menus at all. Is it just a matter of changing to % display, then calculating the range at 100%? I saw...

    Should Maximum Charge Be Changed Over Time

    I have a 2015 Model S. When I first purchased the car, a 100% charge would lead to about 270 miles of charge. Typically, I would charge it to 90% except prior to long trips so it would stop charging at about 240 miles or so (about 90% of 270). It has been 6 years and if I charge it to the...

    Increased Range

    I know at some point, Tesla announced a range increase for the Model Ys. Did this include existing Ys or only new Ys that were released after the announcement? I never saw any increase in my Performance w/PUP. I have never seen over 279 when charging 100%. Thanks. Reference: Tesla Model Y Gets...

    Cold Weather Efficiency Impacts

    Hi, I'm considering an upgrade to a Model Y AWD from my current Model 3 RWD LR. Now with the cold weather, what are people seeing as the range hit on average? For my Model 3 I usually get 150 wh/KM in the Summer and 200ish wh/KM in the Winter (0C and below). (Approximately 240 wh/Mile Summer...

    Purchasing used M3

    I’m pulling the plug and purchasing a Model 3! Before I do so, how does the current owner check the range of the car? Is the only way to charge to 100%? Once I purchase and remove their phone from the list of keys, would they still be able to track the location of the car? Any way to...

    Another Range Post

    Well, after 5 months I charged the Model Y to 100% on 11/1/2020. Display was 315. Today the battery was depleted to 8%. Total mileage is 201. The last 100 miles I drove extremely conservative. I live in Rhode Island which has a lot of hills.

    EPA Range for 2021 LR+

    Curious if anyone has any info about this. My LR+ was manufactured in October and on the Monroney sticker it shows the range of 409 miles. Tesla's website still shows 402 miles and so does fueleconomy.gov, although they don't show the 2021 model year yet. I know that from a practical...

    BMS Drift - does it really matter?

    So I have seen numerous posts about range decreasing and the wonky BMS, but no one has actually addressed the problem with that. Of course, that's assuming you don't have a faulty battery. I feel like in those cases you'd be able to tell pretty easily. Does having a BMS that's drifted cause...

    294 miles on 100% charge - LR AWD

    I've had my Model Y for almost 3 months. I've taken a few trips and charged it to 100% a couple of times. It will only show 294 miles when charged to 100%. Does it sound like there is a problem, or is the display just not super accurate? I was hoping it would show 315 or 316, even though I...

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    Like many others, I have been concerned with loss of 100% indicated battery range on one of my Model 3s. My P3D (build date 9/13/2018, delivery date 10/8/2018) had gotten down to 270.3 miles at 100% charge on January 20, 2020, at about 30,700 miles, which is a loss of 40.8 miles since the car...

    Range increase without Uberturbines?

    Do we know if the range of a PUP goes up if we put non-PUP wheels & tires on or is there some other factor causing the drop in range with the full package? Would like to know before I commit to a new set of wheels and tires to replace my Ubers.

    Range degradation for 2020.28.6

    First time in ages since I have done a 90% charge then switched to miles for a peek. Out of the original 240 my SR+ is rated for at 90% I have 209 miles of WLTP range @ 21c ambient temp. This would seem to represent just under a 3% range loss for 5690 miles at 9 months old. My thoughts on this...

    Model Y Performance -- 291?

    Sorry if this has been covered in another thread, I couldn't find it. Model Y Performance (w/PUP, as that is the only version now sold) is now EPA rated @ 291 miles per Tesla's website. Does this (or will this) apply to our MYP w/ PUPs that were purchased earlier? Everything I've seen...

    Wh/mi rate at startup -- calculation or consumption?

    When I begin driving my Model 3, the display shows very high power use in Wh/mi -- typically in the range of 500 or so. Once I've been driving for a few minutes, it settles down to a more acceptable rate, under 300 (and under 250 if I'm not at freeway speeds). My question: is that initial figure...

    This can't be right, bad battery or normal?

    I took my first small day trip yesterday with my new MY. When I left my house, it said I could go 274 miles. I was traveling 98 miles away. I figured roughly 200 miles round trip would give me 74 miles fluff and that I'd be ok. I've heard that I'll never get 315 mi but guys, it wasn't even...
