Out of curiosity, do you have a source about the EPA certification of that range rating? I realize that Tesla is stating 260 miles EPA estimate on their web site.mtndrew1 wrote:The Mid-Range car has 260 miles of EPA certified range.
Hope you realize that the EPA actually does not actually test the fuel economy of most vehicles. I assume this holds true of EVs, as well.
Electrek: Tesla Model 3 is starting to show some important flaws in cold weatherFuel economy is measured under controlled conditions in a laboratory using a series of tests specified by federal law. Manufacturers test their own vehicles—usually pre-production prototypes—and report the results to EPA. EPA reviews the results and confirms about 15%–20% of them through their own tests at the National Vehicles and Fuel Emissions Laboratory.
