Will Tesla show both EPA and NEDC Range numbers tonight?

Will Tesla show both EPA and NEDC Range numbers tonight?

I hope they do so competition has a harder time to mislead consumers.

Care to give a quick summary of how those differ, if you know? It's a new concept to me there there are multiple range estimates.

From what I can tell, the NEDC (European) rating is generally much higher. I'm assuming the methodology differs due to less highway driving on average?

Are competitors really so bold as to mislead consumers between the two on other vehicles?

@Atlanta09 NEDC, European EPA version, is not a real world number, don't know how the testing works, but EPA nbrs are lower and more accurate.

And yes, VW conflated the too in the past. Other European car makers disclose range without specifying whether is EPA or NEDC, or at least do not
Declare EPA range on purpose.

News sites don't do their due diligence and end up comparing apples and oranges.

Below an example.
