    If you took 240V, 13A and a 53kWh battery and assumed no losses, you would get 16.98 hours. I guess that is what happened here.

    But agreed - it's shoddy journalism at best.

    Well, lots wrong in that sentence. Are these articles just sourcing the other incorrect articles? Or is Tesla stating something multiple times which can be misinterpreted?
