    Chris, Carl,
    To go from 230 to 320 WH/mile by putting the heat on would indicate that the heating system is drawing more than 5KW of power to the heating system. That doesn't seem right.

    Is this the immediate change in power consumption or does it continue even after the car has warmed up to steady state. I wonder if it is a temporary power draw as the car heats up and if it tapers off once the set temperature is reached.

    75-90 temp

    Around town and freeway 18 inch moon rims = 241 wh / mile

    Around town and freeway 20 inch stag rear 265/20 front 235/20 = 268 wh / mile

    Model S heat draws 6kW max, so 5 is not unrealistic.

    61 miles from round trip, Santa Monica to Northridge on the 10/405/118/Topanga Canyon/PCH. 200wH/m.

    Optimal driving conditions, ~zero wind, zero net elevation.

    My average Wh/Mi is ~270, a friend who used my car was able to do 200. Same car, similar temperature conditions. Both the trips were mixed use. That's quite a difference for the same car.

    @Carl Thompson,
    The energy consumption is all over the place for a reason - the M3 seems to be very sensitive to driving style.

    around 250-260 Wh/mi. 50/50 between highway and local. cabin temperature 73 F. Temperate weather outside.

    My average went down to 245 today.
  • 10,350 miles (mostly highway) and I am at an average of 257 right now.

    I just got mine and my average is 240 for 200 miles driven so far with me punching a few times and my last 50 miles where I floored it once was 217. I'm thinking if I drove normally I should see 210 average. This car is super fun with autonomous driving.

    Minus 273 today. Started on top of a hill and drove to the bottom.

    lifetime in our RWD M3 (19” wheels) = 216 wh/mi (4600 miles). Absolutely incredible efficiency as compared to our MS85D = 297 wh/mi lifetime (12000 miles)

    Temperature 40F-55F Seattle area

    I have a 2016 70d all wheel drive. Was averaging 304 watts per mile Had sudden increase to 340w/mile No change in temperature, driving pattern, tire inflation etc. Most driving on California freeways

    Mine is still holding at 213.

    PD3+, avg 245. I get lower than rated in times when I’m testing, driving conservatively. Into the 200s - 220s, big wheels and all.

    RWD, San Diego area, 240 Wh/mi Lifetime average for both cars 6k, 9k miles.

    Mixed
    Austin (so temps typically 50 - 90)

    Miles added: 5k
    Ownership: ~7 months
    Style: Chill mode but not afraid to step on it

    I would say the efficiency started to really improve after a 1k-2k miles.
