    A very simple "ruler scale" under the power meter bar that has a numbered scale showing how many kilowatts the bar corresponds to would be AMAZING. It doesn't have to be a linear scale. It could have increments of 1 from 0 through 20 (normal cruising power) and then perhaps every 10 up to the maximum value.

    See below for a quick photoshop of what it may look like....substitute mm for kW!

    While we wait for maybe Tesla to notice this post...

    If the forum folks working with the REST API can figure it out how to get it working with the Model 3, maybe we can gather some data on the max and min values (and perhaps some video showing how long the display line gets) then the scale could be determined -- whether or not it's drawn in the actual UI by the firmware.

    It’d be nice to also view current power usage alon with estimated range left...if you see “300” maybe you make some changes.

    Does the Model 3 let you see the power usage graph that you can change the scale to 5/15/30 miles on x axis that also shows the current projected range based on the average and instantaneous efficiency? That's a nice thing to check in the Model S especially when getting used to the car.

    It would also be great if you could have one or more custom rated ranges (and associated efficiencies) you could make up for yourself. Basically the range scale could be set to show rated, ideal, and custom1 and custom 2. For custom1 and custom2 you could enter in an efficiency rating that it would use for calculations. You could plug in a lower efficiency for winter or what you've figured out for having a bike rack or new wheels or whatever. Then you could work from just that little battery icon range indicator.

    Not at this time. I do miss the trip graph from my S - that was very handy on long trips for gauging how well you were doing against the predictions.
