Is this standard milage loss?

Purchased a 2018 Model S 75D with 18k miles.

When I picked it up it was at 60% charged, I took it home and the following week when Tesla transferred the VIN I headed to a Supercharger and increased my charging to use the max battery capacity.

When supercharging was complete I had 241 miles. I thought the 75D should be closer to 257 at full charge and with only 18k on it that seems low.

Should I be concerned or is it all part of the Tesla experience.

Thanks for your time,

Being concerned about range loss is a huge part of the Tesla experience.

At least until you set your display to percentage and just get over it. It's pretty liberating.

241 miles at 100% is about 7% loss. Definitely in the range of expectations for a 75, and you will likely find it fairly stable there from here on out.
