Hi all I'm an Australian excited at the coming arrival of Tesla S now that RHD drive production has started. Unfortunately it's coinciding with a big change for me that will make the choice of car more difficult. We currently live in Melbourne, a city of around 4 million people but are planning this year to tree-change, sell our suburban home and buy a small central apartment and rebuild our home in a beautiful sub-Alpine area about 320kms away. My wife and I will work mainly in the rural area but regularly commute and work in Melbourne. Our rural travelling will be 100kms to 200kms a day (big country) but I'm concerned about the commute and whether the car will have the required range without running the battery to the limit every drive down and up. The drive will be on a divided freeway with a 110km/hr speed for the most part, some hills but mainly flat. Temperature range will be between -5 degrees C in winter, and 45 degrees C in summer although both are rare extremes. I'd plan to put in a charger at either end but the electric car infrastructure here is extremely rudimentary and we have an antagonistic Government that thinks that climate change is a left wing plot so I'm not expecting a big change in the near future. Has anyone commuted those distances? If so what power rating do I need to think about? I'd even think about putting in a recharging station at my own expense half way along the freeway if it isn't too expensive.
