Ok, so I’m sure I’m not the only one finding themselves compelled to test the limits of their S as of late. Yesterday I decided to try and intentionally run the car into the ground. I started with a “cold soaked” battery (sat unplugged all night while our other EV charged, temp in the 30's), plugged it in for about an hour then started driving with a 50% charge. Drove at highway speeds, jockeying with some of the faster cars, with the heat set to 71F and seat heater at max, 550 Watt stereo blasting, from Shoreline WA out to Bellevue, then down to Tacoma WA on out to Gig Harbor. I still had plenty of range to get home so I turned both seat heaters on, cranked the heat to max, put on the defroster and hot footed it back to Shoreline, round trip was about 130 miles. I arrived home with a surprising bit of range left and had to resort to driving the car in circles in our neighborhood, I kid you not. Finally the car got down to 1 mile of rated range so I pulled it into the stables and gave it a nice long drink. I almost have more sympathy for the likes of Top Gear and Broder, they apparently really had to put some effort into their stunts! Funny business aside, it was interesting to see a third line form, a checkered yellow line that shows how the BMS progressively limits output. It's kind of like Nissan's turtle, accept it lets you down easy. Anyone take it down past zero and care to report how it progresses, does the line just gradually keep going down to zero or does it suddenly drop off at some point? I figure better understanding how the car reacts in extreme circumstances will help me feel more confident taking it out on long trips.
