As one of the most popular electric vehicles in the world, Tesla Model 3 has become the highest selling pure electric vehicle in many countries and regions.

However, recently, Edmunds, an American automotive media, measured the Tesla Model and found that it could not reach the range declared by EPA, which also attracted netizens' attention.

According to media reports, the 2020 standard extended range model 3, 2020 performance model y and 2018 performance model 3 have not reached their declared EPA mileage.

Then Tesla engineers contacted Edmunds and questioned the test results,They think that they just drive until the meter shows that the driving range is zero, and they don't drive until the power is exhausted.


Tesla believes that even if the meter shows zero range, there is still residual power as a safety buffer.The engineer said that if the buffer mileage is added, the actual endurance after running out of power can reach the EPA nominal range.

Edmunds tested three Tesla models and two other brands according to the engineer's instructions and recorded the actual driving distance after running out of mileage.

With buffered mileage,Only 2021 long endurance model 3 and 2020 performance model s have reached the EPA nominal mileage.This is also the actual endurance achieved under the condition of full power starting, constant speed driving on closed circular road and running out of electricity.

However, in the normal use environment of electric vehicles, few car owners will completely exhaust the power of the vehicle. After all, the battery is fully discharged, which also has certain damage to the battery.

Tesla's EPA range calibration data is in the state of completely exhausted battery, which may cause misunderstanding of the vehicle's real range. What do you think of that?
