So I bought a SR since I commute 50 km a day so I had no reason to buy the LR battery and reasoning between LR, MR or SR+ was the same as the family car for ski trips and camping trip will be the 7 seater Model Y.
2 days ago just before the software update, I was charged at 95% showing 360km range of my usual 386km since delivery as it was delivery as a SR+ and not yet software limited. I had forgotten to get the charging max back to 80% as I usually do and just before the drive put it to 100% to pre-warm the battery and make it charge to 84/85% before departure.
When I did the update on the 3rd of January, the battery range was showing 334km range at 100% of the battery.
I then went for a 25km drive and the SOC stayed at 100% for the whole drive.
I went for another 25km drive and now the range started gradually going from 334km to 300km.
So I guess the SR will have a software limitation of the upper 13.5% of the battery pack and I guess it is safe to charge to 100% daily as it if the equivalent of charging to 86.5% as I was already doing.
Just the regen that will be affected for the first few miles driven.
There is only 2 points of regen showing when full charge which is the 86.5% battery known capacity
