    2000km trip to the Alps. Smooth.

    When we finally got our Model Y long range in March, first thoughts were for a first holiday to the alps in the EV. Why not? Then I googled it, and only found horror stories. Folks taking 16 hours or longer to get down, huge queues at super chargers, and cars limping along at 50 mph to make the...

    Driving from Montreal QC to Yellowstone MT in a Tesla S - and back again.

    I started yesterday, no real concrete plan, other than the destination. It's about 3300 km each way. I have been using both a better route planner, and the onboard navigation, and I have to say I find both very good. At the moment, I'm crossing a great lake on a ferry from Muskegon, Michigan...

    Your Best Tesla Road Trip Advice?

    A month and a half ago I bought a used Model S. Over the holidays I flew to visit my sister. While I was there I got a bit frustrated with my ICE rental car and thought, "Why didn't I just drive instead of fly?" So now I'm thinking about what road trips I want to take with my Tesla. My normal...

    Ideal travel speed in RWD?

    Has anyone done or could help with this analysis? What is the fastest speed we should use on m3 to get somewhere far (1000+ miles) while using only superchargers to charge up in order to get somewhere in the shortest amount of time? I.e. driving 90 mph in m3, battery loses about 30% so it...

    Next generation 2170 cell battery packs

    Hear me out now. Apart from being cheaper to produce (/kWh) the new 2170 cells will allow for more capaciy in a given pack size. 40% more than the 2012 85kWh pack, according to JB Straubel. And that may well be without the extra utilization of 5mm head space through the longer cells. So, close...

    Chevy Bolt a "Commuter Car?" Not Available Until April? Help!

    I have looked a bit to find information about taking a Bolt on the road and not been successful at finding it. I have looked at comparisons between the Model 3 and the Bolt. I even called the dealer. I wanted to know: How do I drive a Bolt to Colorado, 500 miles away? So I called and asked...

    East Coast Model S Road-Trip: Eight States and Two Six-Strings, a Father and his Son

    My son and I leave tomorrow for our first real East Coast Road Trip. While I have covered well-over 6,000 miles in 14 weeks, we will cover over 1,000 miles in the next six days. We have some goals, and I guess we can state them now and see where it all lands. To use our first Supercharger...

    Seattle to Portland and back

    Going to take the Model S to Portland this weekend. Leaving from the Kirkland area and will do a straight shot down to Portland on Saturday via I-5. I'll do my best to monitor power usage and charging stops. I know the trip will be much different once Tesla gets a Supercharger on the I-5...
