    I saw that tesla is now showing a range of 322 miles on their website so I thought that I would fully charge to see what my range is. Tonight it stopped at 304 miles, bummer, lol. I was hoping the new upgrade would add mileage along with power. I drive at a max normally of 70, I am not one to gun it, I normally charge to 240 miles and the temperature outside is 68 °. When I originally bought the car I tested it out at 310.
    I do not know if anyone as tried to see if the new upgrade has given them more range. If so please let me know. Right now I figure a 2% degradation, hopefully it is not a 6% degradation. 322-304 or 18 miles.

    No as far as I know they have not yet changed the constant. Maybe soon. We’ll see! No one knows.

    Tested mine (same model, April 2019) and get 307, same as before the upgrade. Release notes did say more power but did not mention more range, alas.

    There has been no recent update to the range (only website changed)
    Hopefully it will be on a future software update soon!

    You folks are funny.... 253 at 90% extrapolates to 281mi at 100% for me. I am not gonna worry about it yet, but it does bug me.

    I have a feeling they changed the algorithm for reserve on the battery so people don’t run it down to depletion and harm the battery. You know, idiot proof.

    180 miles @ 58% this morning, so 310miles. Stats shows 59%, so 305miles, but it doesn’t seem to update the SOC accurately.

    Is interesting how Tesla does advertise that range which is not obtainable on older cars. Unless of course Tesla made physical minor changes and only new cars can obtain it.

    Yep, same here as well. We just got short changed, lol

    You are a generous guy, if I had only 281miles at 100%, I’d be more than just a little irritated.

    I'm wondering if the problem is with the Stats App or is it like this with other apps as well? Is there any information from people using Teslafi? Or other apps? Do we know if there was an equation change? I cannot see the range drop being related to the battery when the range took a nose dive right after the Tesla software update.

    LR RWD here and my range hasn't increased either from when I got it. Technically this should have been 331 miles, not 325. And thats before the efficiency gains Tesla supposedly made. If that change came out along with the 5% boost in power, I suspect there is no actual improvement, because my car isn't driving with less Wh.

    Interesting ... mine's a LR RWD too, see my Stats picture from a post this afternoon:
    Living with 120V - 8000 miles and counting

    Except for the recent dip, my rated range is almost the same as yours. Is your data from TeslaFi?

    yep, teslafi data.

    and my dip early on was when they changed 325 back to 310 for some unknown reason, then it took a while before i recovered the 325 range.

    I charge to 65% daily, and 80 to 90% on weekends if I plan to drive further.

    The 65% charge means I get to work at 55%, which is close to neutral. Especially good considering that the car is exposed to heat while sitting in the parking lot. Though I do park it in the shade.

    Did you care this much about your range everytime you fill-up your gas car in the past?

    Point being that it was never finite or consistent either&you never really took notice.

    I got a new battery pack about a week ago (boulder puncture) and asked about the 322 range. Tesla told me that going from 310 to 322 is gained in the hold regenerative braking mode and it doesn't display. 9/2018 delivery Model 3 LR Dual motor.

    unfortunate if the case
    Whenever I hear Tesla told me... my confidence in the answer is never very high so will sit and wait on this issue for now
