I have seen different posts online about this - everything from "the weight is proportional to the range" to "the 40/60 kWh versions have weights added for the missing batteries" to the 40/60 kWh use lower capacity batteries so the weight is the same." Does anyone really know?. I am hesitant to pay $20K for extra range. If the 40 kWh battery is about half the weight of the 85 the efficiency would be better, and it would help me be more comfortable with the lower range. My commute is 3 miles each way, and for $20K I could accept using our other car for road trips.
