range limit

    URGENT advice needed on range issues with new Model X.

    Hello. I purchased a model x long range and I am getting much lesser km to actually drive than the rated range. Sometimes less than half. When I spoke to Tesla, they were surprised by this deviation from range estimates but have not offered any concrete reason. My usage is around 285 Wh/km...

    Two miles of charge to get one mile of driving

    Hi folks. We recently joined the Tesla family with our purchase of a Model S 75D. Loving the car BUT disappointed by the fact that our car seems to use 2 miles of battery charge for one mile of driving. For example, drove just under ten miles the past two days but the battery dropped 23...

    Battery charge gauge linearity...

    I've been deliberately running my battery down into the "quarter tank" range to gain confidence with that. The most obvious thing I've noticed is an indicated 185 km range at about 50% indicated, which is about 43% of full rated range, 426 km. At first, i worried this might reflect loss of...
