I’m curious to know what range you are getting when charging to 80%. Each time I fast charge to 80% I only get around 190 miles and between 220-230 miles when going to 100% SOC on the home L2 EVSE. Is anyone getting 250 miles at 80% SOC? What are most folks averaging?

I usually have around 230 miles more or less.

I thought the 250 range number was at 100%, not 80%. If so, 230 seems about right?

I have only charged up to 80% each day at home on L2, and at first it was indicating over 260 miles, but now has leveled off at around 220 or so at 80%. Based on calculating the kWh/m I am averaging (3.3), I fully expect it to drop to around 200 miles eventually as that is what 80% of 77 kWh and that rate will calculate to.

Thanks all for the useful feedback. I had 320 miles of range when we picked up the car, but only average about 190 charging to 80% and about 230 when going to 100% on an L2 home charger. We are only doing 100% charges when heading out for long road trips.

LOL when we picked up the car it said some ridiculous number like 385 miles. People call it the Guess-o-meter for a reason.

I will try an experiment and draw down the battery to about 5-10% and then charge to 80% on our L2 home charger to see any difference in the way I charge.

It should not make any difference. How much you get per charge is function of speed, elevation and your driving style.

drive slower, go to a warmer climate, have less headwind, etc. its a big car and these has effect on the range, but without knowing your driving habit and climate the range sounds oke, not great, but nothing strange.

Very true. I could get 60 MPG in my Prius driving conservatively and slow, or 40 MPG driving aggressively and fast.

I generally see 215-220 miles at 80%. It really depends on driving style and mix of highway/city. Here in Southern California "city" often involves freeway miles, so my number is lower than some other folks'.

240-260 is typical for me, but today in 80+ temperatures in Ohio and highway speeds the past couple of days, this was a treat!

Just look at miles/kWh and then you can do the calculation. Assuming usable battery is 77kWh. I am getting average 3.5miles/kWh * 77kWh * 80% = 215 miles. If you drive such that you get.For 190 miles, 190 miles / 80% / 77kWh = 3 miles / kWh. So it all depends and how you drive, the AC setting for cooling/heating, and how fast you're going (wind resistance). Turn AC off when you drive and watch that 190 miles jump up to 220. It is all relative to how you drive your car

That all makes sense. We've only had the car a week and did a road trip up to Mt Lassen from San Jose last weekend. We averaged 75mph on the freeways, stopping a few times to charge up at the EA stations along the way. EA worked flawlessly and was super fast. The only hitch was the WiFi trial running out mid-trip on the way up which messed a few things up using CarPlay but otherwise, all was fine.
