SI'm comparing the real world experience of driving the Tesla Roadster against the Tesla Model S over a ~180 mile journey that I have driven many times in the last 4.5 years.
I believe the 312 mile NEDC range of the Model S is unachievable unlike the 211 mile NEDC range of the Roadster. My hunch is that the huge weight of the Model S is severely depressing the real world range.
Very long way from the 312 miles (NEDC) that Tesla quote on their website...
Where?Tesla quote real world range of much less than 312 miles on their website.
meaningless in legal context... only quoted NEDC range forms part of your contract with Tesla...
So presumably same would go for Leaf quoted at 124 miles range and most manufacturers quoting unachievable mpg figures?meaningless in legal context... only quoted NEDC range forms part of your contract with Tesla...
Correct... but let's discuss this in another thread... This thread is for my real world Midel S experiences.So presumably same would go for Leaf quoted at 124 miles range and most manufacturers quoting unachievable mpg figures?
Not at all, I think it's relevant here as Tesla is following standard market practice i.e. if you can replicate NEDC test conditions you will get NEDC range. If you can't you won't - simple.Correct... but let's discuss this in another thread... This thread is for my real world Midel S experiences.
I think I'm seeing the same and it was just after the v6 update. My overall average is still 355 though so not too bad. I've managed 240+ miles but it's not fun.I have noticed my Wh/mi has gone up pretty drastically over the last few weeks (not sure if it's coincidental with V6.0, or the drop in temperature).
I was getting v. close to "typical" in my S60 a month ago, and the average wH/mi was around 330 mark. Now I'm lucky to be getting 400. :S
Last night in start stop traffic, I saw my 5 mile average go over 500
Without a doubt that's why its so poor compared with the Roadster... I tried to cruise at 70mph on the motorway but heavy traffic put an end to that and the energy consumption soured as a result.it uses alot of juice getting itself moving.
Depends on the SOC of the first car as the system allocates progressively more to the second car as the car fills up.Charge rate at Birmingham supercharger is 21kW when two cars on charge
Given its a 40+ minute diversion from the motorway I'd suggest using the AC Rapids at the services...
When I returned to the car after 1.5 hours a second Tesla had replaced the first and therefore in reality I spent a lot of time charging at ~21kWDepends on the SOC of the first car as the system allocates progressively more to the second car as the car fills up.
