I took delivery of a new Silver Model Y Long Range with FSD, induction wheels and the towing package on 3/14/2021. It appears flawless. The build quality so far exceeds all expectations and everything is in great working order.

VIN: 137xxx
Build Date: 2/26/2021
Delivery Center: Tyson's Corner, Virginia
Heated Steering Wheel: Yes
New Center Console: Yes
New Headlights: No :-(
Bioweapon Defense: No
Battery Size: ??? Haven't figured out how to check this yet.

I have seen this formula used for a rough estimation of battery size.

Formula makes sense except replace 477 Wh by 0.477 kWh. (118 * 0.477) / 0.79 = 71 kWh.
Answer is correct as is.

Can you plug your numbers into the formula to see what yours says?

Thank you for the equations. Using both methods of calculating, it appears that this Model & has a 78kWh battery.

239mi*235Wh/mi/0.72 = 78.00kWh
(239mi * 0.235kWh)/0.72% = 78.00kWh

This is big news. I may be wrong, but this is the first I am seeing evidence that the LRMY has the 82kWh pack (78 usable). Previously we have only seen MYP have the bigger pack. Someone may correct me if I am mistaken.

I think the large packs calculate out to 80.x and the LR calculate out to 78.x.

Software update: My Model Y came from the factory with version 2020.47.103.1 which did not have many of the features (like boombox) released late last year. It did however have the controls for the heated steering wheel. On 3/18/2021 (4 days after purchase) the car received an update to version 2021.4.12. This update seems to have all the missing features and I'm pleased to see that I am still able to control the heated steering wheel. One thing of note is that the "Navigate on Autopilot (Beta)" and "Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control (Beta)" features are now grayed out and say "not supported in current region". I'm reasonably sure they will be available again when I take my first drive after the update. I'll report back if they do not.

Did you have to do anything to get your software to update? I picked up my car on 3/18 and it came loaded with 2021.47.104... now been a week without an update to the current standard. Thanks!

You are off by a power of 10 in your second equation. You divide the 235 from the first equation by 1000 but you divide the .72 by 100 to get .72%. Second equation equals 7.8kwh.

Actually both equations are a little wrong as written, but both answers are correct.
The first actually yields 78000 Wh, which was then divided by 1000 off screen to convert to kWh as shown.
The second has the correct units (kWh) but the denominator should be just plain old .72, not .72%.

But hey this is nitpicking. The formula is good.
