I should do the same with our August, 2014, BEV.
The listed curb weight is likely for the lightest version with no options (i.e., the lightest 19" pizza slice wheels, 5" rear wheels with 155 mm tires, no DCFC, only 3.7 kW AC charging, no heat pump, no burglar alarm, base entertainment system, no Comfort Access, base cloth interior, no rear camera, no front ultrasound parking sensors, etc.). All U.S. BEV's were delivered with 7.4 kW AC charging (i.e., with a KLE module that's missing in the 3.7 kW AC charging version), a heat pump, and a burglar alarm, so no U.S. BEV is likely as light as 2,634 lb.
