I know we are going a bit off topic here but this disappoints me a bit and I feel a little duped by Tesla. I guess I could have done my homework before buying but the drop off is significant after 75%. I found some sources saying that the drop off on the M3P is steeper than the LR AWD in terms of total loss power (something to the effect of 2X). This makes me wonder exactly what my 10 grand bought me? Is it just a software trick at the expense of having a faster decrease in power relative to SOC?Yes. State of charge does affect the 0-60 times. For max speed keep it above 75% charge.
In the grand scheme of things, the vast majority of my driving will be between 90 and 75 SOC so I guess it's not a huge deal but I hope Tesla finds a way to lessen the impact of the drop off. In the meantime, I guess I will keep charged at 90 to maximize my enjoyment of the vehicle. Having done a few longer drives and gotten my battery down to 60 or so, the drop off is definitely noticeable. You can offset it by leaning into the throttle more but the thrust is definitely reduced. I guess a loss of 50 or so WHP will do that.
