Game over for the Tesla, it appears.

A better photo of a model 3 Monroney (final or preliminary?) has now turned up, showing 131 MPGe city, 120 MPGe highway:

TEG pegged it, but that was after he posted his blurry photo of the sticker on the thread above, so that now appears not to be a guess...exactly.

I also got 120 MPGe highway (lucky guess) before that announcement, but wasn't expecting the model 3 motor upgrade (discussed p. 1) which may be the primary reason the 3 does so much better than previous Teslas in the city MPGe rating.

Still time to guess the numbers for the LEAF, which just might be announced tonight.

Ever since the partial Monroney sticker of the Model 3 showing 126 MPGe combined was known, the city and highway MPGe have been a matter of arithmetic using the EPA CSI report UDDS and Highway ratios. Like this

Just have to get the ratio arithmetic correct ... :oops:

No prizes.

And the term guess indicates the answer is unknown to you.

Try guessing the LEAF numbers...unless you've also got a picture of its sticker?

Everyone should feel free to post that, when it shows up, ending the contest.

BTW, after last night's reveal, I think its even more likely that my LEAF guesses from ~a month ago may have been too high.
