Drag times just released a video comparing the power output of the Model Y vs the Model 3. One of the things they measured was the battery capacity, the Model Y's battery is 5KWh larger than the Model 3, 77.x vs 72.x. The Y and the 3 are supposed to share the same drive train parts, I would think that the increase in capacity is more likely to be due to an improvement in battery chemistry rather than a new pack. The Model 3 is now advertised with a range of 323 rather than 310. We haven't seen any software updates that improve the range of the M3, if they've quietly improved the battery chemistry then that would account for the discrepancy. Drag times uses Scan My Tesla which requires the installation of a OBDII plug. Has anyone done this with a 2020 Model 3?
