model 3 SR+ battery charging issues

My SR+ is having issue lately. I normally charge to 80% and since the max range is 240 miles, I expect to get 192 miles. But that number has been going down hill lately. When I first got the car 6 month ago, 80% give me 192 miles and then started going down to 184 miles, 182 miles and now 174 miles.

My car is very new and only has around 3K+ miles. Is the battery going bad already? Has anyone experience this issue on their SR+?

thanks!

It’ll get better in the spring. First child syndrome.

9% Range loss is a bit steep for 6 months/3,000 miles.

Tesla sometimes tells people to do a deep discharge followed by a 100% charge to "re calibrate the software". You can try that to see what Tesla tells you is your rated range at 100% battery capacity. That will give you an idea of your battery degradation to date.

StatsApp for Tesla has a nice Battery Degradation curve it gets from the car https://apps.apple.com/us/app/stats-for-tesla-model-s-x-3/id1191100729 and another app that does a comparison of your car to other Model 3's.

Are you in a colder climate by chance?
