Keep your “0-60 in 4.1 second ant every stoplight” and your “I’m towing a parachute” range reports out of this thread. Let’s see some reasonable range reports.

Interesting 1000 miles report from Houston.


After 1,000 miles, our range has been much better than what some viral content has shown. We just did a typical daily commute test and averaged 376 miles range. The drive was 25 miles, took 40 minutes, and we consumed 327 Wh/mi. The truck was on chill mode and most of the drive was around 65mph on the freeway.

After 1,000 miles our average range has been about 280 miles with a consumption rate of 440Wh/mi. That has been mostly on standard acceleration mode.

The cost in electricity to go over 1,000 miles has been less than $100. We charge mostly at home with a rate of $0.15/kWh. A small 10% of our charging was free at a local movie theatre.

Just like any car, how you drive effects your energy consumption.

More and more I see of these reports I am getting excited. My use case is not speed. We don't like speed from our neck of the woods. Which means more range.

Maybe Tesla should have put it in the hands of normal people vs. lets test the limits folks. Maybe that didn't work so well for them this time.

This doesn't quite compute. Based on those numbers their average speed for their trip would be 37.5 mph, nowhere near the "65mph for most of the drive on the freeway" number. Seems like it's a bit embellished as 37.5 is either congested stop/go highway or more city based driving.

That said, good result still but it wouldn't be surprising for that average speed.

Good point. Could be free and clear highway traffic followed by a ton of stop and go side roads. Houston is known for random traffic stoppages…

An older range report to add to the thread from the OurCyberLife couple.

“190 Mi on the freeway using 76kWh, not too shabby!!!”

402 Wh/mi according to the screenshot, which would be 306 miles of range.

Answer from him:
"the 40 minute drive includes getting on and off the freeway like a normal commute. While driving on the freeway we did a steady 65. Off the freeway speed is slower.​
Tried to get an example as close to real world experience as possible."​

Because every minute you spend at the light at the end reduces your average speed. Every mile at 20, 30 counts as two minutes in the trip.

So sure, most of the miles were on the freeway, but they get balanced off really quick. That's another reason why the EPA average is so low.

which is similar to why the EPA’s “Highway” test averages 48mph

Which goes to show why I don’t think these are “positive” range results and the others are “negative”’

I haven’t really seen anything that isn’t a “roughly expected” result, be it EPA-similar results at EPA-similar conditions, or EPA-dissimilar results at EPA-dissimilar conditions

Very true.

The absolute biased barrage or range reports that include expected heavy energy activities are clogging the forum.

We need a focus on reports that make use of BEV best practices. It’s getting hard to find those reports. They are being buried.

Well I’m not buying my truck to get great mileage but it looks like if your driving at a realistic pace it will get reasonable distance down the road. I’m looking for a fun to drive truck and I’ll take performance and cool over trying to achieve hi mileage .

This is encouraging news. The 4680 cells and software will only improve over time.

The rumor is Tesla is already on the 2nd generation 4680 cell but I can’t confirm.
Cybertruck already uses the Gen 2 4680s

They are doing a chemistry change right about now to increase the Nickel content, thus more energy per cell, don’t know if that counts internally as Gen 3

The California pilot production line is being upgraded as we speak to make Gen 3 (or 4 depending on the above) cells that should be expanded to full production by the end of the year hopefully
