Sudden drop in range while still in driveway

    My wife has noticed something odd about our Model X. She says that when she gets in the car it will say something like a range of 207 miles. But 5 seconds later at the end of the driveway it says 196 (or something like that).

    Is this something other people have seen? I'm thinking it's just the car waking up and taking a second or so to measure the battery capacity and come up with a fresh value.

    Have you seen the instant energy usage chart on a "cold" start? It is crazy high, so that's why it affects range initially.

    Does your neighbor have an EV and a tap into your Tesla's battery?
