Yet another video showing Taycan beating EPA rated range on the highway and it's not even in summer weather.

I fiddled with the car a little more. Tesla P85D had a recommended tire pressure of 45 PSI - hence all the data in the graph are at that pressure. I decided to check what happens with the Taycan at higher pressure - went for 42 PSI instead of 39. In addition, I charged to 100% just before departure. With these 2 changes there was a ~5% improvement (395 Wh/mi at 30F vs 405 Wh/mi at 40F).

The ride comfort was not different at higher tire pressure - as far the seat-of-the-pants measurement. I will stay with current setting for a while, will see what that gives in really cold weather.
Do you have 42 PSI on all 4 tires? I have 42 on the fronts and 39 rears. 20" studless snow tires. What's your tire size? Just wondering whether I should try the same settings front and back.

I have 42 PSI on all tires - 20" Pirelli PZero Winter. Previously I used 39 PSI on all four (that is how the car was delivered).

How on earth are you guys managing to get ~20kw/100. I’m nowhere near that. Like 39kw.

@Gogs, your 39 kWh per 100? Is that per 100 Miles?

If not That world be nearly 65 kWh per 100 miles else?
I think we are mixing imperial and metric here

200 miles at 100% is what my car will get.
