    Source: For 2020, All Tesla Model 3 Versions Get New EPA Ratings

    All 2020 EPA ratings for the Tesla Model 3 can be found in one place right here.

    This week all Tesla Model 3 versions (those available currently and surprisingly also those not available anymore) received new 2020 EPA range/efficiency ratings. ...

    I was surprised to find the current EPA has a different range number, 220 mi, compared to the original 240 mi. Adjustments to EPA metrics occur but knowing they have is not universal. The good news is my last 100% SOC reported 232-234 miles. But this goes a long way to explaining some 'interesting' cross country trips this winter.

    From the original Monroney sticker:

    • GOOD NEWS - my 232-234 is beating the current EPA estimated range.
    • BAD NEWS - my 2019 EPA range dropped 20 miles.
    Medical issues led my wife to spend a lot of time in the hospital back then. So I missed the change.

    Would it help clear up some confusion if we put 4 models, the Model 3 Standard and Standard Plus versions from both 2019 and 2020, into the same image?

    Which LR version? There are 3 LR versions for 2019, and 5 LR versions for 2020. The EPA display shows only 4 at once, so go look up whichever versions you want to see:
