I've got an interesting problem for any road trips I may take in my future Model S. Not sure why this never occurred to me until now. I guess I assumed that I was fine since I was below both RATED and IDEAL range limits. Anyway, there are exactly two roads out of the town where I live; One way is ~400km until the next charge point. The other way out of town is ~374km until the next charge point. Those are my choices, and both push the limits of the Model S's range. Throw some wind/rain into the mix and I may be in serious do-do. There are some significant elevation changes along the way too (~4800 feet up, ~4500 feet down). However, since the net change is relatively small, would I be able to get back most of the range I would lose by using regen? After reading Doug's guide, it seems like I may just have to travel slower than I have EVER TRAVELED BEFORE in order to make the trip. This will be hard for me (very, very, VERY hard) but I guess I will have to do it if I want to travel anywhere. I typically like to travel 10-20% over the speed limit and now I may need to learn to travel 10-20% UNDER the speed limit! I've already accepted that I likely won't be making any trips during the winter. That's alright though, since I don't travel much then anyway. I've also sponsored a 100-amp charger with Sun Country Highway on the condition that they install it somewhere along my route; hopefully, making it a more manageable 2-300km between charges, rather than around 400km. Winter trips may be possible then. So, what do the road-tripping veterans here think? Will my Model S and I be stranded in my hometown :scared:, unable to go anywhere until Tesla releases a larger battery?
