    Maximum Percentage Charge Fluctuating

    Took a short trip this afternoon and plugged our 2021 S into the Tesla Wall Connector when er arrived home. We have always kept the maximum set at 84% and it has worked just fine.

    Extremely Disappointed With Model S Range When Driving on the Highway at 35F

    Jill and I went for our first long trip in our 2021 Model S LR yesterday. The trip covered 325 miles of roads with speed limits mostly between 55 and 70 mph. Close to half of that was on 70 mph highways. The car was set to Chill Mode and I have never been stopped for driving at the speeds we...

    Torque and Tires

    Two questions. Has anyone seen torque figures for the 2021 Model S LR? If so could you let me know what they are. And on the TeslaTap.com website they indicate that the tires on the 21 S and, I believe, the Plaid, are "Advanced" - would anyone know what that means? Thanks, Beasts

    Ground Clearance Concern

    We will soon, and finally, be taking delivery of our 2021 Model S LR and I have a concern about the last 5 miles of our drive home. We live out in the country and while our road is well paved we have to drop the passenger side wheels off of the pavement in order to allow oncoming traffic to...
