While googling for detailed battery specs I came across some testing results performed on a 2015 model that make me wish I had the extended range option. But also it's just really good scientifically gathered data.

rrattie,

Thanks for finding and posting. Not having studies physics after high school, I was not able to readily absorb the report. If someone can translate key findings for simple me, that would be great.

I was struck that there were over 3000 cells under our floor. Almost mind bending.

I do not understand some charts. The car is always stopped when charging. Why three columns . Some information is useful but charging, I do not know.
