What's your P85 Range?

Hello all, I want to make sure that my car is normal and I am not having any battery issues. So with that said, what is your current range on your vehicle...

90% charge ?
100% charge?

AT 90% I sit at 266
AT 100% I sit at 288

Thanks all....

That can't be right. If it is you don't have an 85kW battery in your car. Brand new a P85 get 264 at 100%.

2013 P85 with about 45.5K miles. I get 233 miles at 89% charge and 262, 263 miles at 100% charge. Note that I've only done 100% charges only when taking a long range trip and I then time the charge to complete within 1/2 hour of driving, so that the car does not sit with a full charge for a long period of time.

So after 45.5k you haven't lost any range? I find that one hard to believe....

I never said I haven't lost any range. When I took delivery of the car in 2013 a 100% charge gave a range of 268-270 miles, so I have lost some range over the years.

I'm fairly gentle on the battery. After my initial "fun" with rapid accelerations, I generally no longer find the need to floor the accelerator to pass most other cars. I believe rapid discharging of the battery may effect the performance (maximum charge range) of the battery.
