Question for those who still have rated range.

Like many, my M3P showing significant lower range than the supposed 310 @100% 294 to be exact.

So I'm curious to see if there is a relation between the cars showing loss of range and draining the battery below 20%

I personally drained mine below 20% twice.

If twice was going to be that catastrophic, the pack would be limited above that.

I think it is reasonable to look for commonality, just think you are on the wrong track.

I'm not trying to say that draining the battery below 20% caused any significant damage. I'm more inclined to think that it caused the BMS to add protection on the lower end of the battery.

Not a M3P but my LR-AWD is showing 311miles today. I've run below 20% a couple dozen times. In fact, the car was home delivered(at a rest stop) to me with ZERO soc%. Deader' than a doornail. Had to push it back onto the car carrier to get it to a charging station. So, draining below 20% hasn't been an issue for my car.

After 29,000 miles and 19 months. I am showing 284 miles on a 90% charge which should be 316 miles full charge. We fully charge about 6 times a year and have been below 20% at least a dozen times.

I have never been below 20%. 30% is the lowest I have been. I have it set to charge to 90% and plug my car in every time it enters my garage. I drive 80 miles round trip a day to work and back, which uses between 80 rated miles and 120 rated miles depending on how I drive, whether I use the heater, if its raining, etc.

At 15k miles and rated range is 309 out of 310 for my model 3p.

LR AWD, 16k miles, rated range at 100% is 309, I’ve seen as low as 303 and as high as 319 before. I’ve gone down to 1% about a dozen times and I’ve charged to 100% about a dozen times too.

I charge my 2019 LR RWD to 85% every night and get 276 miles of range. I have never tried charging to 100% but if I extrapolate 276 @ 85% it comes out to 325 at 100%. Some day I will try actually charging to 100% to see if that is really true.

Our 2018 LR RWD Model 3 only goes to about 307 now at 100%.

Are you estimating or have charged to 100%?
Less than 20% a number of times. This morning was one, this afternoon will be another, as we're on a trip right now

My 2019 LR RWD (4,622 miles) keeps losing a few miles of range. At purchase in May 2019, 100% was 325 and 90% was 293. Two months later 90% became 287, then 285. This week it has gone down to 283, and last night was 281. (Actually I just turned the app on, and it said 282, but when I double checked, it now says 281.)

Am I missing the line by a hair when I set the fill level? They seem to have definite stopping points. I just tweeted Elon to give us a choice of either % numbers to fill in or the sliding scale. Please RT if you agree. @cmhagey

I posted a thread yesterday about not being able to charge to 100%. For long trips I had been charging to 100% but I saw a recommendation to put the remaining 5% in while getting ready on trip morning, to avoid it sitting for hours at 100%. So in the morning I removed the charge cord, slid the rate to 100% and reinserted the cord, but it still said Charge Complete & wouldn't take any more charge. Won't let me charge to 100%

I have charged to 100% about 4 times in the 13 months I've had the car. The first and 2nd time it showed 307 miles range, the 3rd time 299 and 4th 294.

I usually charge to 90% and only use about 5% everyday and charge daily.

Not too many miles (<7K) but according to Stats mine has ticked up a little since I bought it. Have never changed to 100% (and only once to 90%). Only down to about 20% a couple of times.

Last I checked my 3P was at like 299 or 298 at 100% SOC. I've gone below 20% probably 20 times, charged to 100% a few dozen times. 3 track days as well (which must wear on the battery). 25k miles total. IIRC when new car maxed at 309.

2018 LR AWD 10600 miles Charge to 90% 2-3 times per week and before a trip. When new = 278 mile range now = 272 mile range
When I charge to 100% when new = 310 mile range, now = 302 mile range.

Yes here. I have about 12,300 miles, I have charged it to 100% maybe 20-40 times mostly using a home 120v/15 amp home charger and maybe a dozen times to 100% using a Tesla supercharger (before I knew better) and now maximum range (on a trip this weekend) reads 301 when full. Twice this weekend running between Springdale, OR and Klamath Falls, and between Klamath Falls and Reno I needed every watt I could get. Tesla needs a charger between Klamath and Reno as I "lucky and can imagine the problems that others have experienced. I drove slow and turned off the heat and arrived in Reno with 10% remaining. We need a charger in Susanville please!
