    Battery Charge Level Upon Delivery?

    I will be taking a long road trip immediately upon delivery at the service center. Are they likely to have the battery fully charged at the time of pickup?

    Home on a hill - regenerative braking

    We live at about 2,500 elevation and my wife works at sea level - so the M3LR is charged (currently limited at around 70%) when she leaves the house - going down the hill she'll get the reduced regen braking alert at some point. Battery is still only at the limited charge amount. Is there any...

    Can't charge at home. Optimal charging habits?

    I'm awaiting the arrival of a Model 3 LR/AWD, and am quite excited to be weaned off of gasoline. However, I live at an apartment, and cannot charge my car up overnight. There is, however, a Supercharger near my workplace which I plan to use with a modicum of frequency, but I had a question...

    Least stressful and fastest way to do road trips

    I am receiving my new Model S 75 soon and have been reading a lot about road trip strategies to reduce overall charge times and it seems a bit stressful to calculate it all. Maybe things will change once I do a few long distance road trips on it... My question is - what is the least stressful...

    How low discharge for calibration?

    So I'm one of the fabled apartment dwellers without a charger at home. Or at least I was until last week where we finally had four chargers installed in the parking garage, which makes me incredibly happy! After almost 8 months, this is a great relief. Because of this lack of home charging...
