    The bottom row's a little dim, but it reads:
    (unlocked icon) 1,000 38° Sat Dec 8 5:19 PM

    I suspect there are other milestone pics floating around but hadn't seen them on the forum yet so here's a thread for it.

    Some notes:
    1. I took delivery around 2pm on Nov 13, with 65 initial miles.
    2. I don't get anywhere near the efficiency of folks in Florida setting records. ;)
    3. The kW pulsing I believe is the "idle" climate control and radio.
    4. No more screenshots from me with the prominent Projected range estimate. I updated to 4.0 after getting home tonite.

    Going 50 miles using 20kwh should mean about 200 miles on a charge, right? Not horrible, definitely usable.

    I have found that the initial few miles requires a lot kWh to either warm the battery or the occupants. Yesterday, I drove in Ohio with the temperature in the 40's all highway miles and my projected range was higher than the rated miles. I averaged 298 Wh/mi for 135 miles driving mid to upper 70's most of the time. Heat on, seat warmer and radio blasting. It seems to me that a lot of short trips requires multiple warm ups and is not as efficient in colder climates.

    All in all no complaints the Model S far exceeds my expectations.

    Lots of short trips kill energy usage in any car. The main difference is that old fashioned cars don't have the instrumentation to show you, and most people don't keep a logbook, so they never know.

    Exactly correct. No question in MY mind. Which probably isn't saying all that much!
