does anyone know the battery size of the long range model 3?
Per Tesla, they say 75kWh but technically it is 78.3kWh. Although the EPA testing document states 80.5kWh capacity. Regardless that is not the usual capacity. There are certain parts on the bottom and top end that are not usable to protect battery health. I recall actual usable capacity is around 72kWh.
