http://www.teslamotors.com/blog/mode...ency-and-rangeThe company is planning to offer a prize for the first customer to get what it says is an achievable 400 miles on a charge, and Tesla predicts that 350 miles will be routinely possible, assuming a level road, 45 mph, rolled-up windows, no climate control and 300 pounds of load.Is anyone here planning to go for this? I think Greg in SD is the earliest delivery in TMC.
You can also see that at slower speeds it could even be possible to exceed 400 miles in a Model S under the conditions above. We haven’t internally demonstrated that yet and we are planning a prize for the first customer that actually drives over 400 miles on a single charge.
Of course we would need rules.
