Was I given a 70d instead of a 75d?

    When I first bought my new MS 75D in late 2017 my maximum range at 100% was 235. A few years later that still hasn’t changed. I didn’t think to compare the number with what was advertised and just assumed it was what it should have been.

    This doesn’t appear to be a battery degradation issue and I’m tempted to think I got a 70d battery. After all, 235 is the max range for the older 70’s. Is this possible? Am I missing something?

    I was finally able to find the sticker and it looks to be a 75D but could it be limited to a 70? Perhaps in the way they used to limit smaller batteries allowing you to pay for an upgrade?

    Any other ideas for why the charging has maxed out at 235 at 100% since day 1?

    If the car reports itself as a 75 in the app and instrument cluster, it’s a 75.
