What happens when you completely run out of battery in your Tesla Model S? - TESLARATI.com So even a Tesla enthusiast group is capable of running out of juice and finding it necessary to call Tesla for a tow job. There are a couple of things really wrong about this. First, it seems to me that there is a serious issue with energy monitoring that must be addressed. (Read, instrument panel projected range, current and at destination if using navigation). Second, Tesla drivers are going to have to get over the fact that, if we can just make it a few more miles, we avoid having to pay for or wait for some extra range to be added. This seems to be the downside of supercharging at fixed intervals. Thoughts?
