    I'm a bit confused.

    How many kWh are in the various model options for a Tesla Model 3?
    ... per the Tesla specification. I see the EPA mileage numbers, but want to better understand the specs on the kWh in the variously sized batt packs?

    Standard Range ?
    Standard Range+ ?
    Enhanced?
    Long range?
    etc.

    Battery capacity is not a physical property like the volume of a gas tank. It varies based on temperature, discharge rate and age. Tesla has de-emphasized the battery capacity spec and focuses on the resulting range from controlled testing.

    Model 3 useable battery capacities are approximately:

    LR: 75 kWh
    MR: 62 kWh (discontinued)
    SR+: 52 kWh
    SR: 48 kWh (software limited SR+ pack)

    That is super helpful @Zoomit.

    I tried to give your post a thumbs up, but can't see how to do that. (maybe not allowed 'cause I'm a new user just today)
