    Was picking up my Roadster from the LA service center today and Founder #17 was there being preped for delivery. Here's a shot of the window sticker.

    They state 12 hours to charge on a 240V outlet. That must be the public 30A chargers then since 40A is around 9 hours.

    That $9,100 number over 5 years should talk some people into an EV.

    55% US/Canadian content -- I think that answers an important question for import duties into Canada.

    Kudos for posting a full res image, easy to read EVERYTHING :)

    Edit: What's up with the 'This vehicle has not been rated by the gov't for frontal crash, side crash or rollover risk."? I doubt the thing could ever rollover, but I'm curious about the front and side crash testing. I thought this was done already?

    I still think there's something badly awry with the EPA ratings. 88 city, 90 highway? I don't think so. City mileage is going to be quite a bit higher for any BEV with regen. I think they blew/fudged it.

    I was told in a store opening that Tesla has done their own ratings, according to NHTSA's specifications, but until NHTSA buys their own vehicles and does their own testing, there's no official rating from NHTSA.

    I see, thanks for the clarification. Makes sense.

    I couldn't get the QR code to lead to any specific car. The QR code is scannable, but the fuel economy website states that they could not find a vehicle for that code, so I wonder if it's in development or just a general direction to the fuel economy website.

    The Model S has three problems that contribute to this result:

    1. It is very heavy at 2108 kg.
    2. Regen is limited to 60 kW.
    3. Regen is fixed at 0.15 g max and cannot be increased by applying the brake, even when not power limited.

    So these three together affect the city rating negatively on the test cycle. If, however, you drive defensively and anticipate stops so that you never use friction brakes above 10 km/h, you will do MUCH better than the city rating.

    On the other side of the coin, the low drag coefficient helps the highway cycle which does not include as many stops.

    Stop and go energy use is mostly about how fast you accelerate. Regeneration is better than throwing all the kinetic energy away as heat the way friction brake-only cars do, but regeneration only captures a portion of the kinetic energy. Increasing the regeneration rate is unlikely to increase range because the battery can only take so much charge without degradation.

    Ideally you don't want to use either regeneration or friction braking when you slow or stop because then all the kinetic energy (other than bearing, tire, and aerodynamic friction which happen anyway) is used for forward motion. The modern way of driving: roar up to the speed limit, then jam on the brakes at the last minute is extremely inefficient and doesn't get you where you're going any faster.

    The topic starter requested:

    This thread is already getting many posts not related to the deliveries that it will probably be snowed under.

    Could we please keep this topic to delivery updates only?

    So was this car going out for delivery imminently? My understanding was that production was at stand still currently while they iron things out, maybe not a stand still, just a crawl?

    What's the source for this? Is it something Tesla said, something you measured in a test drive, or some calculation based on speed, weight, and regen power consumption? Just curious.

    I thought they upped production to 10 per week last week (or was it the week before?)
