    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,

    Matt

    hard to say unless you do a balancing of the battery ,ie run down low than charge up high ..few times ..in general the numbers you show I wouldn’t be concerned ;)

    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.

    Well, I hate the % display and won't ever use it, but yes, get over it!

    Check out the class action lawsuit (and potential NHTSA investigation) over battery capacity capping. Not sure if your vehicle is part of the group, but worth checking out:
