Folks, I might have stumbled upon the official battery capacity of the Long Range Model 3, and that’s indicated by the number 74 in the Tesla Trip Planner URL below:

https://www.tesla.com/trips#/?v=M3_2015_74&o=New%20York,%20NY%2010001,%20USA_10001%20Manhattan%20New%20York@40.75368539999999,-73.9991637&s=&d=Montreal,%20QC,%20Canada_Montreal%20Montreal%20QC@45.5016889,-73.56725599999999

Could the number 74 in M3_2015_74 mean 74kWh battery capacity?

When switching to the Model S P100D the URL states P100D in that same spot.

I tried searching through the forums for any info and to see whether someone had already found the answer but the search feature ain’t working, at least not on my phone as I type this... Thoughts?

Now if anyone can guess the size of the standard range battery, maybe we can hack the trip planner for some travel estimates. ;)

Probably. Most estimate that it's about 75kWh.
When switching to the Model S P100D the URL states P100D in that same spot.
But for all of the Model S variants, the "year" is given as 2017. Strange that the Model 3 is 2015.

I would try 50 and 49.
Maybe try changing the year too?

Well, the URL does change to 75 and 100 when selecting the respective S and X vehicles, so you may have just stumbled on the first official admission of capacity!
