    Saw this question posted on the facebook X Owners Club and thought it would be good to gather some data here too.

    So far it seems that Tesla's estimation of 10% - 15% is pretty spot on. Unfortunately.

    Anyway, it would be good to put some numbers to this. Please post your relevant configuration (P90DL, P90D, 90D, 75D), and any other information that you feel is pertinent.

    Thanks!

    90D here on 22s. Lifetime (almost 3,000 miles) is 380 Wh/mile

    90D with 20" silvers. Can get pretty close to 300Wh/mile driving at 65mph.

    Isn't there more to the equation than just wheel size though that could impact the findings? Variables such as driving style, ambient temperatures, elevation changes, windspeed, highway vs. city driving and could be more that I can't think of.

    I am sure there is no doubt the 22" wheels will cause some range decrease, but need to filter out the other noise to truly determine what the impact is.

    Would that imply that would could see a 300 Mile range?

    90,000 Wh / 300 Wh/Mile = 300 Miles.

    The actual usable capacity of the battery is less than 90kWh. Don't know the number but there is unusable capacity for battery health.

    Probably not 300 miles, but certainly 250 miles is easily achievable with the 20" wheels (whereas with 22" wheels 250 miles is essentially impossible unless you're driving at 55mph).

    Of course, but with enough folks from enough areas and driving styles providing data that noise is minimized. Then again, it would probably take many more data points than there are X's out driving around. So far it seems like the estimate provided by Tesla is pretty accurate.

    Thanks!

    Wow, you've had a 90D long enough to put 2500 miles on it? Must be one of the first out in the wild! Congrats!

    I picked mine up end of March. I drive around 75mi. on my daily commute, plus a couple of weekend road trips, hence the high mileage. :)

    This is why wind is such big factor for range... (50mph headwinds)
