    I drive within rated range comfortably.

    How slow do you have to drive to be within ideal range?

    I am guessing like 50 mph on highway?

    Reading how many people don't even get the rated range, ideal range seems "too ideal."

    The trick is described in Tesla blog:

    Model S Efficiency and Range

    • Constant speed (such as using cruise control)
    • Flat ground, no wind
    • Climate control OFF or using vent only (no heat or air conditioning)
    • 300 lbs of vehicle load (driver plus passenger or cargo)
    • Windows up, sunroof closed
    • Tires inflated to recommended pressures
    • New battery pack (<1 year, <25,000 miles)
