The test performed on the car was the European NEDC. On that test, they got a result of 444wh/km, which is about 2.5x what Tesla publish as their NEDC result. that is the crux of the issue.

The other related complain is why are they even accounting for CO2 used for generation of the electricity used by the car? They don't do the same for electricity used in the refinement of gasoline, or transportation, etc. It certainly is a novel arrangement that the end-user pays for the power plant CO2 emissions, and at a rate more than 10 times the normal CO2 offset rate.
