Anyone else think the quoted range is less than capacity?

    After watching the livestream and thinking about it, does anyone else think the quoted range is not at Max capacity? 85 or 90% perhaps? Considering there is no badging and it seems they are marketing this vehicle to folks who might not be like a lot of us and examine every detail of the battery and obsess over consumption. Will the greater percentage of folks who buy this car know or care about charging to less than 100% for battery longevity and health, or am I over thinking it?

    you might be overthinking it, however there is a huge cadre of overthinkers here on TMC, so have fun hashing it out.

    Lol. I only think that due to seeing the 75kw cars supposedly having 85kw batteries in them. If something similar was done with the 3 it would be like the old software locked 75s locked to 60 and the threads of charging that to 100% which was generally considered top limited due to the rate of charge staying steady to 100% of 60
