At 98 mph you might get ...
just guess 33 miles on flat highway.
That would be a whole 20 minutes.
Do I remember correctly that they never got it to work properly, so they disabled it or otherwise did away with it?LTLFTcomposite wrote:(I thought the tesla had a two speed tranny though)

Did you guys read my post in the previous page, esp the long blog post I linkedLTLFTcomposite wrote:I recall them having a lot of trouble with it, but never heard the final outcome.mwalsh wrote: Do I remember correctly that they never got it to work properly, so they disabled it or otherwise did away with it?
That would be "no".evnow wrote:Did you guys read my post in the previous page, esp the long blog post I linked
Thank you, Carnac the Magnificent.gudy wrote:based on 70 miles at 55mph (with AC on), 95mph would give you about 24 miles of range.

Seriously, how can you with 1 speed / range determine what the range will be at another? Given that range is (speed * 24kWh / Power) and power required to overcome drag is proportional to the cube of the speed, all we can say for sure is there is some quadratic equation (with a reciprocal term, 1/v) that would determine the reciprocal range under those conditions. Solving for such an equation would require 4 distinct speed points with all other variables being equal. 70 mi at 55mph would only give you 1 of those. One could just as easily guess that the equation is v * 24kWh / ((v - 55mph)**2)kW + 18.8 kW, which is 70.2 mi at 55mph and about 1.4 miles at 95mph.
