    Model S 70D.

    I am travelling from Brossard to Manhattan. Since I only have a total range of 385km it is a stretch to reach the Albany supercharger which is 345km from Brossard. So far i have travelling at an average speed of 60mph.

    So far so good. Will keep you posted.

    Hopefully that north wind will help you out.

    So I arrived at the Albany supercharger with 8miles to spare. Overall a very relaxed journey with autopilot and auto steering. I left Brossard with a full charge showing 375km. I initially travelled at an average speed of 90kmh and then once I entered US via LaColle border my average speed was 60mph Outside temp was 1dec celcius.

    Just in case you have issues for what ever reason always have a plan B especially in winter when it drops below zero. There are many level 2 chargers along the way.

    Do you think a 85D would be able to do Montreal > Albany in the winter on a cold day?

    85D i would think so. You just may have to slow down a little. Just have plan B avail to use level 1 on route. I recall two Hampton Inn have them. Check out evtripplanner.com
