    Why my Wh/mi so bad?

    Hi Guys, so I recently received my model y long range. It’s a 7 seater with laminar wheel cover from Rimetrix. I’ve been mostly driving local with AC set to 68-70 with only 1 passenger. I dunno why my wh/mi so bad. Any idea? Speed was mostly within 30-45.

    Moving to USA from Canada in my Tesla Model 3... What do I need to cross the border?

    Hi all! I'm going to be moving to the USA soon (New York). I'm going to be driving from Vancouver, Canada in my Model 3, and I'm finding it hard to understand what information I'll need to cross the border with my car. I have all my other paperwork sorted out (TN-Visa stuff) and I'm going to...

    Is EPA range for 21" or 19" tires for 2016.5+ performance MS?

    In researching different MS versions, I've been unable to find whether the EPA rated range for MS versions are for 19" (assumed for non-performance) or 21". This is really just a question for the performance versions, e.g. a 2017 P100D. I know many are sold with 21's, but is the 315 mile range...

    EPA mileage not matching energy screen

    I have a MY standard range and the EPA states that I should get 244 mi @ 260wH/mi. However, when I check my energy graph screen, it shows that the rated wH/mi line is about 220wH/mi. Normally, a lower 220wH/mi would mean that the car is more efficient. However, in this case it's bad for me...

    Model Y Standard Range EPA Doc & Battery Energy (54.8kWh)

    FWIW, the EPA doc for the 2021 Model Y SR is now available. (Ironically, the vehicle is not?) (Should have put 2021 in the title of this thread though I guess so far there is only one model year of Y SR...maybe mods can add?) It shows 54.8kWh available in their full discharge test. So I'd...

    2021 SR+ Range/Efficiency/Battery Capacity Measurements Released by Tesla, via EPA

    EPA test docs for the US 2021 SR+ have been published. (EPA datafile and EPA new car website not yet updated though.) https://iaspub.epa.gov/otaqpub/display_file.jsp?docid=51461&flag=1 -> It has a heat pump (heat pump confirmed!) -> Battery capacity seems similar to that of the 2019, though...

    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...

    Preliminary EPA Data for Model 3 AWD & Model 3 P 2021 Released

    So the preliminary document from the EPA for 2021 Model 3 AWD & Performance is released: https://iaspub.epa.gov/otaqpub/display_file.jsp?docid=51235&flag=1 Covers 18" AWD and 20" Performance in detail. Note: it describes the details of the heat pump similar to the Model Y. Summary (AWD)...

    Tesla Model S Gets Official EPA Range And Efficiency Numbers: 402 Miles

    With EPA energy consumption of 117 MPGe – 288 Wh/mi (179 Wh/km), Model S is more efficient than ever. As we already know, Tesla is the first manufacturer to introduce a series-produced all-electric car with an EPA range of more than 400 miles: the 2020 Model S Long Range Plus can go up to 402...

    2020 Long Range Plus Model S

    I recently took delivery of a 2020 Model S with a claimed range of 391 mi. I did a range charge yesterday morning and the Model S indicated my range to be 361 mi. I didn't need a range charge for my trip from Las Vegas to Joshua Tree National Park, but I wanted to see the maximum range of my car...

    2020, 2019, 2018 Model 3 Battery Capacities & Charging Constants

    I should have done this a while ago, but I've finally compiled all the data that Tesla provides to the EPA, and put it into a spreadsheet. The detailed 2020 test data is now available, so we can see why things are rated the way they are. Through formulas, I've also tried to capture what...

    EPA Efficiency Numbers 2020 vs. 2019 - Tesla Model 3 SR+ Takes Crown

    I "happened" to be looking at the EPA efficiency numbers for the 2020 model year today.:rolleyes: This is kind of a look ahead to the promised 2019.36.1 efficiency changes which Elon talked about in the Q3 conference call. And it somewhat matches up with some of the information showing up on...

    Idea: Incentive to buy Solar Panels perhaps?

    I love flooring my Model 3, but using 450 W/mi (at times) leaves me feeling guilty. Having no solar panels yet (SRP in Az victim), I'm basically pulling dirty power from the grid for my thrills. Maybe this unlimited acceleration will be gone someday should the EPA clamps down on EV efficiency...

    Help understanding Wh/mi (EPA vs. displayed)

    I've had my Model S since August, and am still having a bit of trouble getting a sense of how much energy I'm using. With my old Volt, it was easy: at the end of a trip, you could see miles used, estimated miles left. If I drove 25 miles and had an estimated 10 miles left, that's about 35 miles...

    Model 3 Specification Speculation

    Since it's fun to speculate, I threw together a little python script that uses the EPA FTP-75/HWFET traces and the unadjusted EPA rating of the S 70D to guess at Model 3 range. Using an admittedly crude comparison, I'm guesstimating a 55kWh 3 will hit 240+ mile combined and 75kWh 3 will hit 325+...

    EPA Rated Range for 90D and P90D

    FuelEconomy.gov has published their ratings for the 90D and P90D. The 90D combined city/highway rating is listed as 100 MPGe with 95 MPGe for city and 106 MPGe for highway. EPA rated range is 270 miles. 34 kWh / 100 miles. The P90D combined city/highway rating is listed as 93 MPGe with 89...

    P90D - LUDICROUS & RANGE - Expectations and Performance

    I am currently circling the P90D with Ludicrous option. It is obvious that perhaps TESLA has not published the actual EPA numbers for the P90D with Ludicrous as of this date. The P85D is listed as 253 miles on a full charge... with the RANGE option added which results in a P90D, the 6% should...

    When will we know the 5 Cycle Range numbers for the 60 KWH Model S?

    I am going to order the 60 KWH Model S and I've already received my Email from Tesla saying that it's time for me to lock in my order and configure my car. However, I have not yet confirmed my order because I'm still waiting to see the 5 cycle range estimates. I think most of us are expecting...
