ok we have another enthusiast, which is nice, but the video is virtually devoid of any useful information beyond all the obvious stuff

To be fair just seeing it’s moving to dealerships is enough information for me, progress

Range video

New video from JGR, appears to be released today. I am no techie but the basic math would suggest the 240-250 mile range in some range of conditions altho it would appear to be heavily highway driving. Regardless, still excited about new vehicle I have ordered

Charged to 100%, battery 'preconditioned', set eco mode, and set climate to doesn't do a thing mode.


Yea, no thanks. I hop in our Model 3, charged to 90% and rack up 230 miles driving it like the sports car it is... and still have miles left over!



What a pointless "test". I like the car, but they might as well have not done anything.
It would have been better to simply not make this video at all...

Yeah, I see a lot of discussion, especially on UK site, questioning the merits of this test. The steady erosion of initial range claims is disappointing, to be sure. So, folks will simply need to assess whether they can live with daily ~200 miles, and perhaps stretching for longer runs. For me, 200+ will likely comprise no more than 5 out of hundreds of trips per year. . .

The air resistance in the tunnel (vs. real world) the lack of traffic in the tunnel. The fact that they could do the best range MPH in the tunnel.. (usually around 40-45) whole thing wreaks of legacy car maker BS.

I'm not arguing the original point (that this is not a particularly useful test of range), but I'm curious why you would assume air resistance in the tunnel to be less than air resistance in "the real world". It's a tunnel, not a vacuum. If anything, air pressure/resistance is higher in the tunnel. I know they have pressure release valves for the trains, but I doubt they have those in the service tunnel (which was used in this video).

Other than that, your point is taken. Despite having a 90 kwh battery, the "shrinking range" phenomenon for this car is disturbing. That said, for my purposes, anything over 100 miles is fairly immaterial. I recognize others need their vehicle to go longer distances, so maybe it's not the car for them. Too bad, I test drove it last week and it's a rocket ship. So much fun. Can't wait for mine to get here (late Oct/early Nov is what I was told last week).

But then, no drafting possible in the tunnel.

It's not some empty tunnel, but anyway:

What's the complaint about 230 miles and 23% charge remaining? Seems ok to me, in line with prior expectation.
