I've put down my deposit on a Model S and I'm incredibly excited. I'm currently back in the queue past position 14k, so it's going to be a long time waiting..
Anyway, I'm trying to decide if the 60kWh battery will be enough for a regular weekend trip I make from Marlborough, MA to Brandon, VT. It's about 200 miles, with the final 80 miles being mostly 40-50mph on curvy, mountainy roads. I'll pass near some chargers in Concord, but I'd rather be able to do this in a single charge. There are no real charge stations past that, though I might be able to find a house willing to let me steal some power if its an emergency. People are nice in Vermont
Does anyone else make similar trips with their Model S? Any idea how claiming a small mountain will affect driving range, since there's a lot of regent potential on the downhill?
