The guess'timates for the Roadster's range have certainly seen their ups and downs. At first, it was projected at 250 miles. Then, because of additional safety weight, it was dropped to a more disappointing "over 200 miles." The first EPA test reignited the optimism with results of 245. But now Drori reports that the independent lab screwed up and that a second test drops the range back down again to 221. He states, however, that "we feel the real world numbers are a better reflection of what you might see in day-to-day use." Okay. So let's look at those "real world numbers," as reported by Andrew Simpson in the "Touch" blog. They are: 267 (best-case scenario), 230, 227, 222, 213, 209, 203, 186, and 165 (worst-case scenario). When I calculate those figures, I come up with an average range of... 216 miles, i.e., 5 miles lower than the second EPA test. That's pretty much in the same ballpark for all intents and purposes, not "better" --or worse either. It looks like the anecdotal reports actually substantiate the latest laboratory results, so that's probably what one should count on for "day-to-day use."
