    This means the promised range by Tesla is.... well, way f.. way off. Don't get me wrong, I love the Model S, and I almost never drive more than 200kms (125miles) in one day. But in Europe we typically drive faster, and the range thus gets to the square of x worse, which means I can't do 300kms (187miles) on one charge... which is... unexpected, unfortunately.

    90% of roads in Estonia are 90km/h or slower. During winter it's 100% of the roads. During the summer only the major highways are upgraded to 110km/h and some sections to 100km/h. Germany is an exception and that's why a denser network of superchargers is created there.

Can someone confirm what the ideal and rated lines are at in the energy graph? For EU model they are 181Wh/km and 205Wh/km. One has to do the km <-> mile conversion though.
    I am not sure if this may help, but it might! I will link 2 videos. The first video explains why he uses typical range (He is located in Norway.) The second video explains the difference between rated range and ideal or otherwise known as projected range (He is located in USA.)

    I hope this helps!!

    (PS the first video is kind of long haha..)

    Video two: Skip to 1:20 of the video and you will hear him discuss why he switched to projected range rather than rated.

    (video three goes hand-in-hand with video 2.)
