Model Y 2021 LR Range question

i drive just under 80 on cruise control. My commute is like 20 miles, about half freeway, half highway. It used about 30 miles of range(including a few 100+ hits, lol @ mustangs).

Heater is the enemy on these cars, even my prius prime was WAY less efficient with heater on...seat warmers for the win :)

If you’re asking if theoretically, going from 100% to 0%, you can go 200 miles at that speed, I’d say yes, most likely in most conditions, unless you are in well below freezing temperatures. In the more realistic scenario where you start with 90-95% and want to get to your destination with 5-15%, then it is harder to say. The good news is that you can always slow down if you feel you might not reach your destination!

In the summertime, probably yes. Worst case is you need a 5 minute Supercharge which should add about 40-50 miles depending on if it is V2 or V3.

As others commented, it is doable. When I purchased MY LR and took it to see my wife's family from Austin to Fort Worth (approx 200 miles distance), I arrived with 5% battery from 95% level after driving in 75-85 mph on interstate.

The driving condtion was typical warm/dry (85 degrees) Texas fall weather with two large dogs in the back 🐶. However, this was only done once when I found out that taking short break in SC is so much comfortable and less stressful.
