Good call, I totally spaced on the wheel covers not being present.I'd say up to 2% as these would also be aero optimised. It's not like they are slapping truck mirrors on there, so the difference between with and without might not be that big. The wheel covers might do more.
There are a couple ideas from inflatable front "Aeroobars" that offer wildlife protection and better aero, to revised front skirt with active lowering skirt for freeway use, better air curtain design around the wheels, or a rear wheel well cap, and a pop up roof that can streamline to a trailer box etc.
Ultimately I think all signs point to what we essentially already know. 120kWh+/- pack and a top-end range at or just north of 300mi. At this point, outside of an official EPA/Tesla leak I’m not sure we’ll get anything more precise.
