Hi there Tesla Motors Club,
For my Master's program, I'm researching the perception of efficiency metrics in electric vehicles. I noticed many people have mixed feelings about the Tesla consumption graph. I was inspired by Tesla drivers' frustrations with the consumption metric display so I...
My Model 3 (dual motor long range AWD, Fall 2018) uses significantly less energy when it is on autopilot than when i drive the same roads at the same speed myself, as gently as possible, and using the single pedal (in standard mode)? On autopilot, which I use only on freeways or well-marked...
I realized what I really want on the interface.
Since the range is highly variable based upon driving situation / variables, I choose to display battery in % which I feel is easier to think about.
Now I have come to the realization of what I need to go along with it.
If instead of ###Wh/mi the...
This is my first post here as I’m a happy new owner of a second-hand Model S P85D from 2015.
I have been using my Tesla for a month now, and I’m wondering if the energy consumption is « normal ».
From the « Trip » screen in the car, I’m consuming on average 250Wh/km. That seems a...
I like to keep the rear view camera always on the top half of my screen when driving. It seems like this is no longer allowed with v9.0. I can’t seem to get anything but the map on the top portion of the screen. Has anyone figured out to have something other than the map on the upper...
I have built a webapp for the Tesla dashboard that shows you the energy used at your current speed on wind and air resistance.
Enter http://airresistanceindicator.com or Air Resistance Indicator in your Teslas browser to try it out.
It will give you some insights into how speed relates to...
While on vacation, I left our December, 2016 build HW2 90D MS connected through the Tesla Mobile Connector to 240V. The car has ~4,800 miles on it. The charge rate was set to 50% at 5 Amps. Energy Savings was ON and Always Connected was checked. Cabin overheat protection was on (D’oh!), but the...
The key features shown in the video are:
• Quick and easy connect and disconnect
• Nothing to roll up or store
• No floor or overhead safety hazards
• No interference with either of our two cars
• Use of the standard Tesla Mobile connector
• Charge and energy consumption metering
Took a 500 mile journey in my 2 mo. old S90D. I monitored my energy use and compared it with the nav system estimates of expected use at each supercharger stop. That is, if the nav system said 20% should be left at Mumble City, I noted it against the actual used when I got there...
My December 2016 MS 90D sat quietly in my garage for two days.
Power Saving: Off
Always Connected: On (on home WiFi)
Smart Preconditioning: Off
Range Mode: Off
Over a period of 47 hours, it's estimated range went from 198.4 to 189.2 miles. The car appears to assume that I will be...
I've had my 2013 Model S for 9 months now and have put 15000 miles on her. About 6000 of those miles were during two long road trips with another coming up in late November. What I have learned is that the charge estimator works really really well except in places where the speed limit on the...
