With Tesla's new branding of range (220 miles or 310 miles for model 3) rather than battery size does anyone know if these are real world ratings? Typical Tesla charge is only to 80% to preserve battery life, wondering if 220/310 posted range is for charging to 100% or 80%? Thoughts anyone?

See the Tesla Motors Club thread "How does the US EPA calculate the "Certified Range" of an EV?" #4

Stopcrazypp says
"Long story short:
1) fully charge car
2) park it overnight (factors in "vampire" losses)
3) test on given test cycle repeatedly until car can't keep up (either stops completely or can't meet the parameters of test; keep in mind that whatever the car's dash says about range is irrelevant to this as long as it can keep driving)
4) fully charge car from an AC source and measure electricity used (charging losses are already factored in) ... "

I think we will all be surprised when the EPA releases the Model 3 range. Chevrolet pulled a fast one and stole the headlines when the media found the Bolts range (238) to be a lot higher than the 210 miles claimed by them. I do not think that was lost on Tesla. If the EPA tests the Model 3 and it is less than 220 miles it will be a disaster for Tesla.
Look to see the Model 3's actual EPA range come back higher than the 220 Tesla says. I would not be surprised if it is higher than the Bolts, thus stealing GM's thunder.

Hi
Has anyone got access to a graph mapping vampire losses against temperature over time for tesla 3. It would be a helpful estimation especially when you are away from home or when charging before cold nights.

Depends on what reality you live in.
