I do a lot of roadtrips with my Model S: I just got back from a 2200km roadtrip to Prague (Czech Republic) and I did a 5500km roadtrip through Denmark, Sweden and Norway. So I spend quite some time at the SuperChargers and after all these trips it simply starts to feel slow. Nothing wrong with my Model S. It doesn't charge at 60kW max, it charges at ~120kW. The tapering is just the big killer. I often have to drive ~240km stretches between SuperChargers and the tapering is what makes it really slow. To add 54kWh to the battery I needed 43 min yesterday. That's an average of 74kW. Going from 18km to 300km SoC it took 47 minutes and added 56kWh. Nothing wrong with the SuperCharger itself, but it's the tapering which really slows you down. In real life you have about 60kWh of capacity available between SuperCharger stops to travel a distance of 250km. That's 240Wh/km at highway speeds (~130km/h). But adding 60kWh to a Model S will take about 55 minutes and that's long. Not mentioning trying to do a range charge. So Tesla says it is not interested in a 500 mile battery, well, I'm not so much, but I'd rather want a battery which I can charge with an average of 100kW or even more. I'm fully aware of the limitations and why tapering happens, but if I would get a 110kWh battery, the tapering kicks in later. I can charge up to 60 or 70kWh quicker and be on the road again. 30 minutes is about the max I'd personally would like to see. While Elon says that a 200 mile EV should be sufficient for anyone with the expanding SuperCharger network I kind of disagree due to the long SuperCharger times you will need with a smaller battery, again. But let me be clear, I'm fully aware: - Lithium-ion requires tapering - A SuperCharger is at least twice as fast as CHAdeMO - The Model S is a great car - Speed kills range I love my Tesla and I will never buy a ICE again (promise), but if we want to proceed into the future I think people would really want shorter stops. The 4 hour driving and 30 minutes charging simply doesn't exist. You drive for 2 hours, charge ~45 minutes, drive for 2 hours. My 1080km trip yesterday took me 12 hours. I know that highways speeds in the US are officially lower, but I think a lot of the US drivers would like to drive 80 mph, right? After owning your Model S for some time, how do you experience SuperCharging?
