If RWD then 275 miles represents a battery that is 4.6% larger than the previous SR+ (LFP).
Cold weather seems only to have a small effect of Rated Range, like less than 1 mile in my case...
The only way cold weather will affect rated range is if a part of the battery is 'reserved' until the battery warms up - you will see the reserved portion on the app or on the charging display in the car. In that case, the rated range will only reflect the battery proportion available.

Cold weather will however considerably increase consumption/efficiency meaning the rated range will be even more optimistic than it normally is.

Picked up from Southampton this morning and drove home for an hour. All very easy. Dropped off my trade in, all they checked was the mileage and V5. They gave me the key and left me to look round the car.

All looked good and great quality, no panel gaps or paint issues as far as I could see. I gave them the OK and they activated the car and I drove off. I was there for probably less than 20 mins.

Car looks great, had 30% charge, so enough to get home and plug in.

Overall, exactly what I was expecting and very happy.

looks fantastic and thanks for the pictures, this will be me on the 8th; fingers crossed. If mine has 30% charge might be an issue getting back to just north of Newbury. I wonder where the nearest supercharger is to the Southampton delivery Hub??.

Type your home destination into the navigation and if you need to charge the car will direct you accordingly.

Otherwise tap left lower corner of the map if there isn't a lightning flash symbol already showing. Sutton Scotney en route but it has a reputation of being one of the few slow/inconsistent Superchargers due to "age and infirmity" ...

You rock up to the collection centre, park your car, hand over the keys. They check the mileage and that’s it.

Anyone picking up from Bluewater today?

I've Googled to see what the pickup location looks like (didn't want to do a reccy as we are 1.5 hours away here in sunny Suffolk), but would be interested to see if anyone's picked up their Tesla from there today?
