    I got the car 2 weeks ago and did the full charge 1st time and the range it showed was 314. Is it good, bad or standard??

    What was yours??

    297 - both times I've charged to 100%.
    However, I've gotten a calculated range of 304 - 312 at various states of charge (70%, 80%, 90%).

    I think mine was 315 day after delivery (they left the car set to 100% charging). Last time I did 100% charge it was closer to 310 tho.

    I charged to 100% yesterday and I'm not going to charge it again until I get to ~10%. Should take a few days. I'll then charge to 100% again and report the result. Today is only day 5 with the car but I'm testing everything. I think I'll set my max charge level to ~70% for day to day driving after this test.

    I did a full charge a few times on superchargers and each time it went to 310. Most time I limit it to 90% and it caps at around 281 I think.

    311 at home a couple weeks after delivery. 314 at a Supercharger about a week after that.

    After a week of driving, I had a charge go to 311, but it wasn't quite 100%. The phone app showed the power from my 14-50 had dropped from 32 amps to 18 to 12 over about 15 minutes, so it was probably 99.9% at that point. I had to go to work and couldn't wait for it to finish. My typical 90% charge gives me 282 miles.

    310 on my first charge. 305 after about 2000 miles, and 276-282 on 90%.

    What rate is everyone seeing when supercharging? My first couple of times it was over 400 mph.
    The last wo times is was from 50-100 mph

    It depends on how full your pack is and the health of the Supercharger. At a properly functioning 135kw supercharger without another car at the paired stall I've hit as high as 118kw and nearly 500 mph when my battery was very low. Once you get up near 50% charge the rate will decrease significantly and continues to decline as you get more full.

    I had 310 when I first got it and 312 this morning. The number will vary.

    My first full 100% charge was after 5 days (150 miles logged) of driving. After charging to 100% car only read 305 miles of range. It was for a road trip and I have not charged to 100% since. Taking a road trip this weekend and will see what the max range is this time.

    Forgot to update. After charging to 100%, driving to below 10 miles, and then charging to 100%, it read 315 miles. Up from 311 beforehand. I'll probably do this every few months. I've settled on charging to 80% day-to-day.
