Nope. The kWh consumed and the consumption rate (wh/mile) includes the energy to move the car and the auxiliary power like AC and heating.
Ah, you are right. Ignore me... I was thinking it of the overall vampire drain which can be in that ballpark, but that's while the car is not in drive.

Thanks for the correction.

Prediction: Battery is fine. Firmware update will fix (corner case?) issue where car won't charge.

Discharging an EV to 0% can be dangerous. And with not accepting a charge, I guess vampire drain will make it even worse right now.

Driving a rented EV to 0% is like filling a rented gas car with diesel, you just don't do it.

That's why Tesla maintains an "anti-bricking buffer" where the state of charge when the reported range is zero is still safe for the battery.

And on the model S, there's a second level of reducing power-consumption to avoid damaging a battery due to vampire drain, I assume the Model 3 would implement similar.

I’ll just leave this here for you.
