    I'd be interested to know the exact route. Would be useful in determining the effect of altitude, etc. on energy consumption. I think at one point Casey mentions Lassen supercharger and some of the video shows hilly terrain so this was not a "flat" route.

    Makes me think a 90D could hit 600miles on a similar route in warmer wx, surprised no ones gone for the record in a 90D.

    Congratulations! I know a bit about the "camel effect" but a whole day is awesome. I look forward to hearing more as you report some of the details. I always thought that the right conditions would allow 500 to be done. Glad to see it done!

    This is amazing Casey, you have my respect and admiration for getting to 550 miles on a single charge. For the record, that's more than double the Tesla quoted 270 mile range of the Model S 85D!!!!

    Go for 1000miles! Transport it to top of the Alps and find a road that goes down the whole way.
