For data below, the post keeps moving the 40kWh and 60kWh headers to the left by Mileage. For each row, just know the first number is for the 40kWh and second is for the 60kWh
For the many that are deciding on which of the two smaller batteries to purchase, I have put together what I believe to be a good/accurate breakdown of mileage expectations. Note the 40kWh EPA rating is estimated using the arc of the 85kWh and 60kWh EPA ratings.
Mileage 40kWh 60kWh
EPA Rating (Range charge of ≈95%) 145 208
Standard Charge (≈90% of max charge) 130 185
Real world Range (RWR) driving (85% of range) 123 177
Real world Standard(RWS) driving (85% of standard) 111 157
Winter driving Range (WDR) (70% of range) 102 146
Winter driving Standard (WDS) (70% of standard) 91 130
RWR - Battery degradation (20% after 8-10 years) 99 141
RWS - Battery degradation (20% after 8-10 years) 88 126
WDR - Battery degradation (20% after 8-10 years) 81 116
WDS - Battery degradation (20% after 8-10 years) 73 104
If you think the battery will degrade more/less or that you may drive more conservatively/aggressively, then these numbers will change accordingly.
