Bjørn Nyland (Teslabjørn) has been testing my Raven MXLR

First test was 90 km/h and 120 km/h consumption tests, there will also be a 1000 km challenge coming (there was a live stream today).
Not sure if this is interesting for you guys but anyway, here is the video of the first test:

Personally I enjoy these tests and it was quite fun to have my own car participate.

The bugs though.. I have a big cleaning job ahead of me tomorrow! :)

Edit: Crap, I forgot to put in the topic that it's a "Raven" or model x with adaptive suspension and upgraded drive train.

Thanks for lending him the car. The X LR Raven is an amazing piece of engineering. Don't know how you could part with it...

I think if you change the rims to these, it will make your car look fantastic:

Tesla Model X Aftermarket 20 inch Tesla Wheels

You can keep your tyres, caps, TPMS...etc, transfer to the new rims. And sell your old rims to any Model X owner that is fed up buying new 22" tyres...

Yeah, the rims are mostly for efficiency, if I wanted nicer looking I'd have gone with the black 22" :)
Maybe I'll tire of them in a year or so and change, so thanks for the link!

I watched his video before your post. Thanks for your generosity for lending him the car. Loved his down to earth style reviews and learned a lot from his videos.
Sheeeet. lol.

For those who don’t want to sit through the video...does it include energy usage numbers? (Wh/km, in this case)

Yes,

90 km/h (56 mph): 177 Wh/km (285 Wh/miles), range about 520 km (~320 miles)
120 km/t (75 mph): 229 Wh/km (368 Wh/miles), range about 400 km (~250 miles)

But you should see the video and comment on my cream! :)
Edit: also to see how it compares to other cars, he has some nice tables with stats

Bjorn showed a 75D X had an efficiency of 199Wh/KM on the slow run in winter at 7 degrees C. So it appears the Raven LR X is on par woth the older 75D cars on efficiency, but given the larger battery pack = significantly more range.

Also shows why efficiency is important as Tesla can get similar range out of a larger 75D X as other EVs with a much larger pack.

The Raven numbers are impressive for a 6000 pound beast with huge frontal area. Tesla engineers really know how to get a lot of range from a kilowatt.

At 120 km/h it has about the same efficiency as my 2015 e-up or a leaf. It's also comparable to an e-tron doing 90 km/h so it is indeed insane numbers.

I just returned home from picking up my wife, two daughters and two friends of the daughter in in town and I was reminded of how practical this thing is too and there was much laughter in the car with the "Emission testing mode" and four young girls. I can't recommend it enough if one has a family.

Those are some nice numbers... I have a 2016 X 90D with ~36k miles that used ~14MWh for an average of 401 Wh/mile during the life of the car. That is with lots of long highway trips while fully loaded up with kids and their stuff. This past three months I averaged 375 WH/mile. Only times I see sub 300 on a trip is going down hill.
