    Nice! I kind of gather that your EV driving has a lot higher percentage at freeway speeds than I have in my Prime when in EV, given that EV is your only mode when you take it on trips. So, I'd say your 4.37 m/kWh compares well with my 5 m/kWh at mostly 30-60 mph. I'm feeling better about getting the M3 next year. I've been looking at various other EVs and don't see anything that even tries to be energy efficient. And then there's the Super Charger Network.

    The AWD long range sounds nice, but it's way more expensive and not nearly as efficient. I can't justify getting that one. I'm almost totally settled on getting the SR+. And the 2021 update really sounds nice.
