    Driving from Toronto to Ottawa on the 15 th of April 2018 in the midst of the ice storm with a full charge and had to drive reduced speed of 70km/hr for the last 20 Kms to reach the supercharger with 0km battery power ! Very scary!

    Wow that’s right on the edge!

    In adverse conditions slow down early, and tou won’t have to crawl towards the end. Energy app is great for monitoring the power draw.

    Another point to mention with the ice storm all the front of the car was a sheet of ice, all sensors stopped working, no cruise, no park assist and no auto pilot ,not that I wanted to use the auto pilot in the storm

    Least range I've gotten was 2 miles. Took forever to start supercharging at a decent rate.

    Arrived home one time with zero on the clock. Was actually zero for the previous 12 or 13 km. Never intend on doing that ever again!
