    Hello,
    I tried searching, but couldn’t find the answer.

    Question: How many KM’s / Miles, will the ( Model 3 long range two wheel drive) typically get, between a 20% to 80% charge.

    I’ve seen videos of it getting 500km’s from a full charge to empty.

    I’m curious how what range it typically gets sticking between 20% and 80% though.

    Thanks

    60% of the total right? Or am I missing some part of your question?

    Not sure of your question .... If 100% is 310 miles, then every 10% is 31 miles....Range at 20% would be 62 miles and range at 80% would be 248 miles?

    310*0.6=186

    Thanks for the replies.

    I should have stated that I could do the math to get a range, assuming the rate of consumption was constant from 0% to 100%.

    I asked, because I wasn’t sure if the rate of consumption changed based on the percentage the battery was at.
    I know the car charges slower as it reaches 100%, and I’ve seen some videos where the battery percentage falls faster at the end of the charge.
    So I figured if anyone regularly ran between 20% and 80% the range may be different from what the math would dictate.

    I’m not sure though, since I don’t have a model 3 yet to test for myself.

    Thanks

    Charge rate is very different from storage capacity. As the battery charges it can accept less current, but the last 10% of charge is the same number of watt-hours as all other blocks of 10% SOC.

    Therefore capacity of a given SOC range is just the percentage of total capacity.

    Thanks again.

    186 miles / 300 KM’s it is then.
    That’s perfect for my daily usage.

    Just holding out for the AWD model now ...
    :)

    I am quite impressed with the Model 3 range....
    Here's a chart of various SOC vs ending range after my daily commute. Depending on your geography/weather and driving style you can evaluate different max SOC settings. Since I live in Southern California even with a 110 mile (!) commute and aggressive driving style, I am totally comfortable choosing to max charge to only 70% nominally!
