Some of you might now that I started a blog a few months ago to post entries about my road trip in Europe, which I did this summer 2015, covering 10.000 km across 9 different countries. I have now decided to use that blog to post entries on the EVs I am taking on test drives. So far I have tested the VW e-Golf, the BMW i3, and the Mercedes B electric drive. You can see the blog entries here: http://teslaroadtripeurope.blogspot.no I of course compare them to each other, but also against the Tesla Model S, not to see which one is best, but rather to check for potential improvements on the Model S. And so far I have come to the conclusion that Tesla really needs to inplement driving modes on its cars. That is something all other EVs have, and it is really a useful tool. It allows you a safer driving in winter conditions or slippery roads, and it will also allow you to save power and get more range out of the battery. Another thing I found interesting is one of the regen modes of the Mercedes, which works with the ACC radar and adjusts regen level to the traffic situation and the road incline. For example, if the road is flat and you lift your foot off, it does not regen brake, but has you coasting. But if you do the same downhill or with a slower vehicle ahead, it will regen brake. Quite interesting, although I am not sure I would ise it. Those improvements are easy to deploy via OTA SW updates, so I am thinking that implementing drive modes would be an interesting suggestion to log into Tesla Motors' website. Thoughts?
