It's ok if you're not charging to a 100%, just give an estimate.
Simple math. Do a quick toggle from miles to %
(Miles displayed x 100) / % displayed
= est. SOC at 100%
Ex: my LR RWD gets 284 at 90%
(284 x 100) / 90 = roughly 315 at 100%
I recently charged to 100% for the first time. I got 235 miles on my SR+
My SR charges 100% to 223 miles.
I think you mean Rated Range as Estimated Range would be the person's driving style factored into the currently available range. Everyone's would be different.
Vmulla, this is what I should have posted all along.
But for posterity:
42, thanks to all the fish
217 when i got it.
212 before V10.
206 immediately after V10.
240 before downgraded to SR. I charged to 100% that morning and it was 210. It is sitting at 206 now with V10.
Woke up this morning to 201 at 100%.
So maybe there should be some general discussion here about the elephant in the room. Lithium Ion battery degradation. This happens to all LI batteries regardless of the device. It doesn’t matter if it’s a phone, tablet, laptop, drone or a car. This is a well documented phenomenon, especially for Tesla cars. Check out the myriad of charts depicting this that show up when you do a google search on the subject. Notice how the capacity drops rapidly when it is new and then levels out and has a very slow drop over a long duration. When discussing the displayed range of your car try to be cognizant if this inherent drop in range as your car ages. If you get a new software update you’ll probably be looking more closely at the indicated range and be inclined to attribute the drop to the new version of SW. When it’s more likely just due to the natural aging of the battery. There also appears to be some pretty unrealistic expectations about range from model 3 owners here on the forum. Maybe Tesla should have some educational materials about what to expect for battery degradation and range over the lifetime of your car.
Please pardon my ignorance on this model, but doesn't it have the same batteries as the original Model 3 - just down graded by software?

Very true. We see many instances where people have battery degradation issues, go to Tesla and are told that 10% loss in first year and 15% total loss of capacity by year two is within normal limits.
Tesla should use it as a sales pitch for the higher range models since it effects all EV's and Tesla has the highest range EV's.
@FISHEv: "Very true. We see many instances where people have battery degradation issues, go to Tesla and are told that 10% loss in first year and 15% total loss of capacity by year two is within normal limits."
Citation? No, because this is total BS. Fish, please take your trolling and go away.
One Million Dollars!!!
Beagle, the SR has a software locked version of the SR+ battery which is smaller than the MR and LR batteries.
Just charged my SR+ to 90%, giving 350km (about 218 miles). That makes around 389km (243 miles) for 100%
