Passenger weight effect on range?

I'm curious how much of an impact the cargo/passenger weight have on the range of the battery. Does anyone have real-world experience on a trip driving solo vs. the same trip with several people and maybe luggage in the car? Obviously it has to reduce the range but I'm curious if it is a dramatic reduction.

I haven't measured it myself, by you might want to look at the detailed parameters in this site:

It will compute the expected range between two points based on a number of factors, including number of people in the car.

seems like 4 x 75 Kg passenger is 7% less range vs 1 passenger

Great site. doesn't have temperature factor other than rolling resistance

Does anyone have any input as to whether the luggage being placed in the back or the frunk having much of an impact on range?

The more passengers, the lower the cost per passenger-mile!

The more passengers the more $ you can make from their fares. ;)

Expected range is greater in Europe and Asia vs USA


Please explain.

More roads are downhill.

And they count km, not miles.

I think you refer to average passenger weight in Asia and Europe vs. US? Haha, good one.
