  1. How can % go up on a drive?

    Tesla Model S
    Struggling to understand the rationale of how the battery percentage can go up at some point in a non stop drive (as shown on the trip graph) I can understand how the graph might flatten off, or the expected range increase when going from a 70 limit to a 30mph limit (which is this point in the...

    Hi, How many Tesla owners out there are actually using a Chademo adaptor?. Chris
  3. Real world energy per mile (S70)

    Tesla Model S
    With my last couple of ICE cars I've kept a log of tank-to-tank mpg as a way of measuring actual fuel consumption (the on-board estimates usually proved to be over-optimistic). I've been trying to do something similar with my Model S70 RWD which has done a modest 1780 miles over 3 months (around...
  4. Not seen this before - is it new?

    Tesla Model S
    Happily charging at an Ecotricity CHAdeMO & had returned to sit in the driver's seat after about an hour when suddenly there was a clunk sound, the main screen went blank & I got the charging info on the driver's binacle screen. Tried the double thumb wheel press, the unlock doors press, prodded...

  7. Ordering Process - When does order "lock"?

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    So... I am sure this has been asked 100 times before, but I can't find the details? :whistle: Lots talk about price increases, and specification changes (or facelift) for model S - when you place your deposit I understand you then have a period to configure your car in the configurator, then...

    Tesla Model S

  10. Days between order and build

    Tesla Model S
    I was curious if there was a pattern of "time till build starts" vs. "day of the quarter that the order was placed" I took all UK cars in the database ordered since the end of July last year, through to now, to see if UK cars were scheduled in any particular way. What I found was that there is...

  13. Comedy shorts

    Tesla Model S
    One of the rather unexpected advantages of owning a Model S is that I now see these micro comedy programs on TV - they only last a few seconds. Saw one yesterday for something called an Audi A4 - apparently "What Car" "Car of the year 2016" with all sorts of advanced features: A button to start...

    Tesla Model S

  15. Odd new 7.1 message

    Tesla Model S
    Loaded 7.1 last night - it worked OK last night & first thing this morning. Then on way home this morning all autopilot and cruise control stuff stopped & it told me to call service. I did the expected cleaning of the sensors and reboot of the screens - nothing fixed, so I booked the car in to...

    I am looking to buy a custom charge cable of 15m-20m. Does anyone already have a cable around this length? Some people have mentioned that the charging speed will be affected? Can anyone comment?

    Tesla Model S

  18. 7.1 Autopilot new constraints

    Tesla Model S
    Is it just me, or is anyone else a bit annoyed by the statement that "The auto-steering feature of the 7.1 Autopilot is now limited to 45 mph (72 km/h) on single lane roads with markings." I think of all those roads around the UK (not to mention many other countries) where you would be driving...
  19. Ward's list celebrating engines - wot no Tesla?

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    So Ward's list singles out the i8 electric motor for recognition, but no mention of Tesla's engineering excellence. Illustrates the long row to hoe for an innovative company to get closed minds (maybe with their own agendas) to open up These are the 10 best engines in the world - Business...
