I posted this in the 125+ page Range Anxiety thread, but thought it deserved more identity and opportunity for discussion from an interested and focused audience. At one point in the Q&A Elon Musk made the following statements regarding EV range expectations by the public: Transport Evolved Live Blog: Teslas Press Conference to End Range Anxiety in Electric Cars - Transport Evolved "Musk: 200 miles is minimum threshold for an electric car. We need 200+ miles in real world. Not 200 miles in 'AC off, driving on flat road' mode. " then added: "Musk: anything below 200 miles isn't passing grade. Most people looking for 20% more than that." So it sounds like maybe 240 miles targeted in the Model 3?!! That would be amazing at the target price point! Is this realistic? It would be hard for Tesla to put out anything much lower than that after a statement of this sort acknowledging what the public expectations for real world range are.
