    Just saw the update on Tesla website. P85D is now 253 miles, what happen to 270? Anyone getting more then 253 or closer to the 270?

    270 was for the 85D, not the P85D.

    See my post at P85D Lost power on road, - Page 26. I did 242 miles on a charge in a P85D, with 40 rated miles left, yesterday.

    thats great mileage CottonWood!

    I read your follow up to learn this was in wet / slush conditions so assuming average temps of 5c / 40F which is even better. I assume that the average speed was more like 40-50mph and not highway to get some great mileage out of a P85D

    Some details at P85D Lost power on road, - Page 29

    I drove at Posted Speed Limit + 4mph with cap, max speed of 59 mph. I also had a tail wind most of the way.

    I did 251.7 miles from Blanding to Flagstaff (and the reverse three days later). Averaged about 60 mph @277 Wh/mi for the uphill (about 1000' overall) to Flagstaff and somewhat faster @275 Wh/mi for the reverse, downhill to Blanding.

    Here's what I wrote about the first of those two drives: P85D range and highway battery performance - Page 28

    @Cottonwood, @Stevezzz - sorry if I missed it. What tires did you have on your cars for these trips?

    Thanks,
    Alan

    Both of us are running Nokian Hakka R2's, real winter tires.

    Nice to know that that awesome wh/mi figures can be achieved on the R2s.

    Sad to say, I'm having quite a different experience here in Boston this winter. I'm probably averaging 380-400 wh/mi, with a lot of excursions out to 500-600 wh/mi and peaks off the graph. Mostly smaller trips. Lotta snow, ice, slush. Cold -- just hit 35 for the first time in 3 months or more. My R2s apparently can't magically get me down to the energy consumption numbers you guys are hitting. :) And yet you're going up and down that Hole in the Wall driveway every day (loved your P85D video about that).

    Thanks,
    Alan
