    Wow! Very good! The Model 3 LR is going to be a road tripping machine!

    What was the displayed Mi/hr charge rate?

    I believe the fastest superchargers can output 145kW max...but it doesn't look like any Tesla built so far can accept that kind of charge rate.

    Nice! It would be great if you could post a table with the numbers as well.

    Nice. Where does the 80.4 kWh come from? Are you reading that directly from the vehicle?

    OK, I'm confused. The date in the image says Feb 1, 2018 and in the text below the image, it says Feb 1, 2017. But today is Jan 31, 2018!!! o_Oo_Oo_O

    Hmm: 50/20 rule.
    50% of the charge in the first 20% of the time.

    Damn I wish my S would suck back that fast...

    They have slowed it down over time.

    Tesla may also be "selling" the charge rate on model 3 right now, and slow it down in the future too... preserve battery.

    You never know.

    I've updated what I say to people for charging my car... I used to say "about a half hour" to get to 80% or more.
    Now I say, "about an hour" ... at a supercharger enroute while road tripping.

    Maybe, but I think they are anti-selling it to a point. They say:

    Long range Supercharging rate: 170 miles of range per 30 minutes
    Standard range Supercharging rate: 130 miles of range per 30 minutes

    But it looks like the graph shows that he got ~200 miles in 30 minutes.

    To summarize, starting from a 6% charge with 19 miles / 31 km of range left he was able to add:

    125 mi / 201 km over 15 minutes
    176 mi / 283 km over 25 minutes
    225 mi / 362 km over 40 minutes
    267 mi / 429 km over 60 minutes
    286 mi / 460 km over 75 minutes

    I know this question has been answered a bunch of times already but how many kW are in the Model 3 long range battery?

    Based on the Model 3 averages in Nikola, Model 3s appear to have approx 73kWh usable capacity.

    That would mean 500 miles per hour. Sounds too fast to be true.

    If it would continue at that rate, that would be great, but it drops off quickly.

    No, it means 125 miles in 15 minutes. If you look at the graph it is non-linear (the charge rate in mph - or kW - decreases over time)
