When car was new, charging full and driving to zero used 80.8kW. Doing the same at 75k uses 70.8kW (since Tesla has changed the definition of a rated mile, this is the best way to determine battery capacity). That translates to 12.4% range loss. 75k miles translates to about 300 full battery pack cycles. Panasonic's cycle life curves predict range loss of 13%, so despite lots of full charges and heavy Supercharger use the pack is right where is should be capacity-wise.
