Will only do 80mph :crying:
Yep, been that way for a while. You can still get to 80 real quick though
Yes all the demo cars are that way.
Hmm... did 85 mph in the 60kWh loaner I had last week...
I've definitely seen service loaners go above 80 as well. For those from Texas (i.e. pete), they still limit it to 80 even though some of your highways have 85MPH speed limits? I'd think they should at least allow you to go the speed limit.
Yeah....I remember when they started doing it around this time last year, Jack, the SC manager at the time, explained that a few customers had been going a little crazy, so I guess it's a liability protection for Tesla as much as anything else. The 85 mph roads are down in Austin I think, nothing fun like that up here around DFW :-(
Yeah. The Texas Autobahn. They should raise it to 85mph for the Austin loaner cars then.
Autobahn's are way more fun, and way safer; I'd be scared of unlimited roads anywhere around these parts....so yes, it's probably as close as it should get to the real thing!
I didn't attempt to test the 60 I had last week in Palm Springs, but the loaner contract I signed also said something like "you agree car will not be driven over 80mph". Or maybe that was the test drive agreement - the fellow at the front desk was confused when I showed up for my [service] appointment and thought I was there for a test drive, had me fill out and sign the iPad, which I [obviously] did not read all that carefully.
I really wish the contract and the speed limiter were actually for 87 mph. Can't hit 88 mph, cuz we all know what Doc Brown would say would happen!
87 would be a nice touch, like the radio going to 11
I understand now. I was curious to know if they had anything better in the design of the road technically, I mean keeping aside the driving rules/discipline. Thanks.
I am not sure about most areas, but here in Denver, the Service Center sometimes pulls their loaner cars from the nearby gallery's test-drive stock. The Test Drive cars are always speed-limited, but the dedicated loaners (in my experience) have not be locked down.
Until yesterday there was no store in Dallas, so all the loaners were out of the service center, though they've hosted various test drive events as well.
The one we test drove in Orlando was definitely not limited to 80.
I drove two in Orlando three weeks ago, a P85 and a P85+. The + was speed limited and the P85 was not. I hit the limiter several times on the test drive.
