    What, Tesla addresses the issue? No CAS for WantMy? How sad! I guess he can take comfort in owning the best’est top secret EV ever. It gets one brazillion miles on a single charge, even in the winter! And it’s the quietest and most comfortable, but he’s going trade it in on a Model Y, just as soon wit comes out, maybe. lol

    The kid is at a gaming cafe all day and night, somewhere in Asia and his car exists in a driving game. The sad thing is that he can’t distinguish VR from RL.

    @NYLON -- ordered 5/8. delivered 5/22 Live in California. Took exactly 2 weeks.

    I'm also having an issue with my SR+, a bit similar to Jrcase, where my 90% is only 212 miles. That make say 100% roughly 235 miles. Isn't it supposed to be 240? My M3 is brand new and so it shouldn't be battery degradation and the temp's outside have been in the 60's F. I love everything else about it but range loss makes me nervous.

    Any insight you guys may have would be appreciated!

    @Magic 8 Ball - I'm still on the same software version as delivered, 2019.7.107. I got caught up with work yesterday so I didn't get to touch base with the service rep again, but I'm guessing they pushed a configuration-only update that didn't require a full software build, and that it just needed the car to be charged again for the update to take effect. That said, my delivery specialist had already scheduled me for an on-site visit at my local service center next week so they can do a thorough inspection of the car's systems to ensure that I'm 100% satisfied.

    Other than the previously errant range indicator, I've had no problems, and I think the car is fantastic and truly a joy to drive.

    @coffegrinder - I actually think you're fine, as from what I've read it's normal for the indicator to be off by a few miles. The issue I had previously was that the disparity was large enough to make me think I had the SR range instead of the SR+. Your indicator at 212 miles is only 2 miles off from my current reading of 214 at 90%, so I wouldn't worry as I think that's within a reasonable error threshold.

    @fivehole_29 - Thanks for your thoughts. Just trying to make sure my paranoia about battery degradation and range loss hasn't already occurred. I have too many experiences with iPhone battery degradation that I immediately got flashbacks! It doesn't help the charging screen graphics kinda resembles an iPhone on wheels lol.

    Do you think it's wishful thinking that Tesla will come up with an upgrade that streamlines system electrical consumption to the point we get a nice little bump in range?

    My M3 SR+ now shows 163 miles at 69%, It is about 236 miles at 100%. I believe they fixed the range issue after I emailed Tesla service center.

    Here’s my 02 cents. I took delivery in March. Currently on 2019.16.2 but the figures have not changed since taking delivery 2019.8.5. Tesla Stats app is showing 0 degradation so far.
    346km (214.9 mi) @ 90%
    385km (239.2 mi) @ 100%

    My experience is consistent with @lateulade. I have to average ~200 Wh/mi to get 240 miles out of my SR+.

    The 'upgrade' I paid for is nothing but a hopeful and unrealistic Wh/mi rating. What is strange is that the energy consumption graph has a rated line at 227 Wh/mi, and when I average 200 Wh/mi the projected range is well over the estimated range, but it is never realized. The estimated range just keeps ticking down at 1 mile lost per mile driven while the 'fake' projected range keeps claiming I am going to do so much better.

    I definitely feel tricked. Would have considered the 240 mi Niro or upgraded to LR RWD with true 230 Wh/mi if I had known the truth.

    The Niro has a 64 kWh pack and the SR+ a 48 kWh pack, but both claim 240 miles. The difference is with the Niro you can achieve 300, with the SR+ you can achieve 210-220.

    @rstromsoe - As noted earlier in the thread, if you paid for a SR+, call service and ask them to confirm that your car wasn't inadvertently software-locked to a SR. If it is, they can fix it over the air.

    I also have a May 2019 SR+. When I got it, it was showing 240 mi. range for the first thousand miles or so. It came with 2019.12.1.2 Then all of a sudden and very consistently, my rated range dropped to 213 at 90% or 237 total. I do hope that it's not a 1% battery degradation already. But after seeing several other comments in the last couple months, I believe it's most likely due to an update.

    @Kev it's not battery issue, it's just your car adjusting to your driving style and the weather.
  • edited September 2019
    @cLam - what email address did you use? Did anyone actually reply, or did the range just change?

    I'm experiencing consistent 220max & am driving at 175 Wh/mi

    My SR+ with 28.3.1 with 800 miles on the odo is giving me 240 on a full charge (as of last Sunday) and at 90% gives me 216, both 100% consistent.

    Stop living miles and start living percentage, it's worry free.

    "Stop living miles and start living percentage, it's worry free."@cpeppey

    Only if you never worry about getting to your destination. Percentage has to be converted to range to have any real world meaning in how far one can travel, the main function of the car.
  • edited September 2019
    When the percentage gets low you just find a place to fill up, it is not hard.

    the navigation in the car is remarkably accurate in predicting residual battery power on arrival

    I have a Standard Range + and I simply drive and when it gets low I charge.
    No stress

    I have SR+ and I can only get 230-232 miles at 100%( 207 mi at 90%). I sent an email to Service last week and have yet to heard back. May have to call. My car was built in 6/19 and took delivery on 6/4/19.

    Battery size for SR and SR+ and MR always have been a mystery to me. The only way to verify the battery for certain is to look under the front wheel axle for the manufacturing sticker . Important manufacturing specs are on the sticker, and at the bottom of the sticker next to the VIN is the battery size--installed on the car. I have verified with several model and so far all SR and SR+ , including my SR+, are 50 kWh battery.

    llim3306, Did you ever hear back from service? I have the same range on an SR+. I'd be interested in what you find out.

    I think it has to be from the 32.2.2 update (at least for me, I don’t have V10 yet). I have a SR+ with 7300 miles, 6 months old. My full charge now is only 212 miles, and it seemed to happen overnight. I usually charge to 80%, and was always getting between 188-192, which is right for 240 mile SR+. Now after the update I’m down to 174 miles at 80%. Sounds like I’m not the only one.

    Snake Oil, as of 9/30, I have yet to hear back from Tesla Service. Disappointing, I really like my model 3 and been doing everything I can to promote Tesla to friends, family members, co-workers..etc.
    I may need to call service. Max range (twice charged) at 100% for me was 228 and 230.
    As someone who really care about the environment, I will be supportive of Tesla regardless.
