I drive just 1.8 miles each way on my daily commute, and have been looking for some suggestions on the best charging practices in that scenario.
I took delivery of my 3 LR AWD on June 29th, with a year of free supercharging included. I have three supercharging locations within 10-15 minutes drive each.
After 4 months I have just over 1,100 miles on the clock. I have taken just one 200-mile round trip on the highway, before which I charged to 100%. Once or twice a week I might have a day of 20-40 miles running errands or visiting friends. I have pretty much been following the Owner's Manual recommendation to just plug it in each day set for 80%. Home charging is easily adequate despite being just 20A/100V, resulting in 6-7 MPH charging. Charging cost at home is a measly 4.162¢ per KWH!
I did run the battery down to around 20%, one time, then went to the supercharger and ran it up almost to 100% in order to "exercise" the battery. I have noticed the displayed range at 80% SOC declining a bit (4 miles or so since new) and that brought me here to seek advice from others on the best strategy for charging. Or is it best to just forget about without worry?
In case you are wondering why I would invest in such a car for a 2-mile daily commute - I am on the cusp of retirement and plan A LOT of road trips to enjoy the Tesla experience!
