Displayed Range, Watts/Mile, Calculated Battery Capacity on 2021/2022 Model 3s

I am considering trading my 2019 LR RWD Model 3 with 19” rims for a 2022 M3P or 2022 M3 AWD.

I am trying to judge the real-world range and battery capacity that I would have in a new car. I’d lose radar, and homelink. I’d pick up acceleration and restart the warranty. Not sure what my real world experience in terms of range would be compared to the LR RWD that seems to be pretty efficient.

I am hoping that a few owners of 2021/2022 AWD or M3Ps are willing to share their current displayed max mileage (using the app slider), calculated battery capacity (using the formula 5-mile range x projected range / percentage of charge)?

I have 22,000 miles, I show ~290 max displayed range (using the slider on the app to 100%). However, my battery consistently calculates out at ~68 kWh. This worries me.

80% in town driving and my total watts/mile lifetime is 231 wh/mile.

I can go ~250miles @~80mph Phoenix to Tuscon and back without charging.

Can anyone share their ’2021 or 2022 data to what I have? Even if you only have a few thousand miles, your feedback would be helpful.
