Model 3

What is your Wh/Mile?



  • 15 months and nearly 50K miles.

    I'd say 70% highway miles, 20% city and 10% mountain.

    Type: Model 3 LR RWD 18” Aero all season tires
    Location: Maine and Atlantic Canada
    Wh/mile: 302
    Type of driving: Mixed. Some interstate speed limits here are 75MPH. Preheat often and try to finish charging just before leaving when plugged in. Occasionally leave heat on for an hour or two when away from car and NOT plugged in. I try to avoid driving during heavy snow storms or freezing rain.
    Temp: -5 to 45 degrees F
    Miles: 3,324—October 2018 through March 2019

    My typical has been 320 on the 21s (3300 miles), but I recently have brought that down through more observant driving so I am averaging 254 wh/mi (Model S 60)

    Minnesota. 54 degrees
    1,453 miles and mine is 270.
    Not really conserving.

    I live in MN. Definitely have noticed that roughly 40 degrees seems to be the line between “good efficiency” and sort of “crap efficiency”. Loving the warmer weather ahead of us.

    "I live in MN. Definitely have noticed that roughly 40 degrees seems to be the line between 'good efficiency' and sort of 'crap efficiency.' "

    For me in California the line between good and bad efficiency seems to be much higher. For me it's around 60 degrees.

    Update on mine:

    I’ve now had the car almost a month. NY, avg probably 50 degrees. SR+ 18” wheels.

    85% highway
    Low climate or no climate on
    259 wh/mile in 1500 miles

    The efficiency has been good overall and I’ve noticed on the occasional 65 degree day we had I was able to achieve close to 200 wh/mi. So, I’m sure in the summer my numbers will go to more like 230 wh/mile.

    However, what isn’t accounted for is the drain per day. 10 miles a day seems to be the norm for me (occasional pre heat) and more if sentry mode is on (20ish) miles a day.

    10 miles a day, 365 days a year just lost is 3,650 miles gone from the range that need to be replenished (about $15 a month wasted with my NY electric rates)

    Just to keep that in consideration for those who feel that they would save quite a bit from switching from an ICE car. I ended up saving quite a small amount compared to my 26mpg Cadillac at current gas prices. Maybe $40-50 a month. Still good. Not great. I imagine those with low electric rates are loving it though

    >40 degrees and it’s not unusual to get efficiencies of 220-250. Below and I’m frequently 290-320.

    M3 LR RWD
    We've had it for a bit more than 7k miles now over 7 months and Watts/Mile is 256.
    We got it in August and it was HOT here in Tucson so our Initial W/M was 300+ but it's gone steadily down what with less launching it and cooler temps. Lately my about town W/M is 220-230ish.

    P3D+, about 6000mi in with late September delivery (so mostly cool to cold driving so far). The last 4000mi have been on Pilot A/S 3+

    Live on a hill and most drives lose between 500-1000ft before heading home.
    40/60 highway/city
    Lifetime is 310Wh/mi
    On warm days without punching it, I’ll get 240 on my city round trips.

    My first 3 (RWD LR) is at 218 over 15,000mo and 14 months.

    My P3D+ is a bit over our S85D’s lifetime of 304.
