Pretty sure our 3 can get a million miles, at probably a 10% capacity of its original capability lol. Already lost 4% with less than 10k miles.

Assuming the Model 3's battery chemistry is similar to that in older S and X cars and therefore behaves similarly, the majority of battery degradation occurs in the first ~25k miles, then slows significantly.
