Normal for a 100D model X to have a range of 330km?

    I got my model 100D for about 10 days, driven a total of 1k km. it came to my attention that my range is only about 330km even when fully charged.
    I called Tesla and was told this is normal.
    I am quite disappointed as it is no where close to the quoted range of 560 km in the web site. :(

    I've a MS 90D (2017), I've got a rated range of around 390km when charged to 80% but only 220-230km in actuality! My previous MS P85+ (2014) has a rated range of around 360km at 80%, but around 180-200km under my normal driving conditions!! Mainly driving around HK island.

    PS. Spare a thought that other EVs' actual range is probably more inferior to Tesla by quite a big margin

    Are you talking about rated range or estimated range? Also, when 'fully charged', do you have limit set to 100%?

    The rated range displayed should be similar to the Tesla quoted NEDC range. Estimated (which is based on your average recent driving behaviour) may be less/more, depending on how you drive.

    My accumulated mileage is 330km for 100kWh of power. 60% of NEDC range.
    I don’t know what everyone’s experience is. NEDC doesn’t seem very relevant here.

    Since we only charge to 90% and should always charge before the last 10%, the effective range for me is about 270km.

    Your experience sounds about right and similar to my experience with my MS in HK.

    You may get 350km or above on highway driving for 80-90% change, but nowhere near the advertised NEDC range.

    Then again, I’ve owned a number of other ICE cars in HK. None of them come close to the advertised fuel consumption...

    Yeah, rated != estimated. I actually get pretty much exactly NEDC rated on my car (a S85, pre-autopilot) - that is some hills around Sai Kung, but mostly highway to/from work. I guess my commute pretty much matches the UDC and EUDC components of NEDC. Trips to the airport often get down to 150Wh/km (which is almost 20% better than NEDC). If you live in mid-levels (for example), you won't get anywhere close. As the saying goes; your mileage may vary.

    NEDC is a joke, but it is the law and at least allows for reasonably equitable comparisons between different brands on the same test. The US EPA test is better, and the new WLTP seems better yet.
