As a configured but no VIN almost owner, it’s great to hear good things on the actual range! More are being delivered in the Portland area: saw a blue one go by the Forth storefront tonight about 7:30pm. The future is getting brighter and brighter!

The list of accessories for the 3 does not include the adapter. On the list of accessories for S and X the adapter specifically says it’s for S and X only.

I can attest that the 310 mile range is real. I’ve put 240 miles on a full charge and I have 80 miles left. Unlike a Leaf though, zero on a Tesla is really zero. If you do that you’ve damaged the battery and voided your warrantee. So, useful range for me is about 250-270 miles. I want to stay in a range that doesn’t stress the battery.
