Do facts hurt your feelings?
What does that mean?
I'm not at all surprised by this test.
Sort of makes the Taycan more appealing, no? Not sure if I’m up for paying $120k+ for an EV that’s rated that low so I’ll stick with my $40k Model 3 that gets 300-ish miles for now.Absolutely. I'd rather have a rating of 200 and be surprised to get 240 than a rating of 300 and be disappointed to get 240. Oh well.
I have NEVER gotten anywhere near the 310 EPA rating on my LR_DM.I did something similar. On paper, the SR+ had enough range for the longest commute I may do (180 miles round trip), but I wanted to be safe so I went with MR. What I didn't factor in properly was the battery degradation and the effect of phantom drain. In 23 months and 24k miles, I have lost 14% of range (full charge around 227 miles instead of 264), and combined with phantom drain, I could not comfortably make the 180 miles without a short supercharging session. It is what it is, but in hindsight, I should have gone with the LR...
