    If someone was able to get an S85 to do 400miles, shouldn't the 100D do 500?
    Anyone getting a 100D have 25 hours to drive at 20mph continuously?

    Been done with an 85 already:
    Tesla Model S driver becomes first to go 500 miles on a charge

    The challenge for a 100D would have to be 600 miles.

    There's a guy who has done 80+ miles in a Gen-1 Chevy Volt on a charge with 10kWH usable battery capacity. Who cars what you "can" do - what matters is what you would normally do in terms of miles per kWh when driving "like a regular person".

    According to the Tesla website a Model S P100D 500 mile range is approximately what can be achieved at a 45 MPH speed on level ground, no headwind, 19 inch wheels, etc. If you want 600 or more miles simply drive slower. At about 25 MPH the estimated range is easily over 600 miles.
