Model X

How many miles are you actually getting with your Model X?

edited November -1 in Model X
I have a new 100D MX with 22" RIM
trying my very best to get the maximum mileage when driving on the highway or around town.
Based on my avg 65MPH speed (or below) and gentle acceleration, I am happy if I can get 230 miles without too nervous about reaching the next charging station...

what is your experience in maximizing your distance on your MX?

    I've noticed that mine rarely even gets 200 miles out of the projected 260 even if I stay in range mode the whole time.

    This Summer to experiment I have been switching back and forth between OEM 20" and 22" wheels. With 22" my avg has been around 400Wh/mile, with 20" it is around 340Wh/mile.

    400Wh/mile translates to 92kWh for 230 miles on a 100 battery so that seems reasonable.

    And the range penalty of 10 to 20% with the 22" is real at least for me.

    The mileage projection in my experience have been within 1% accurate , and maybe some time 2% off but its rare.
    (under expected conditions)
    So range anxiety is rare as you know you will get to the destination location with the estimated charge.

    You also know pretty quick if the estimation will be way off.

    So you have to use the car navigation, for road elevation, temperature, speed limit will have dramatic effect on range.
    In the winter for example, I dont even get half the rated range going to the mountain. And if you plan to take cargo, give yourself a generous margin on arrival. 20% is usually a safe amount if you drive with passenger and the temperature can drop during your travel.
    Right now, the only electric car that can get me to my destination are long range Teslas in those conditions.
    Even so its less then a 100 miles trip.

    I think I get ~420kw per mile average on the odometer. So 184 miles per leg if I go from 90%-10% (good / flat driving by myself)
    I expect that this will drop by 10% in the first 5 years, but could be upto 30%. (Tesla does not really guaranty the battery beyond that or a total failure)

    For me less than a 15% drop would be manageable, but more then that and I wont be able to drive this Tesla to some of my common destination. So the hope is that Tesla will offer a battery swap for owner that need the range restored by then.

    I mostly use mine for non-freeway commute to work. A single charge to 80% will give me about 140 to 150 miles before it reaches 20% at which time I charge again. Averaging about 350KWh/mile and I lose about 15KW of power to phantom drain over a period of 5 days. On my most recent long distance drive of about 100 miles, I averaged about 285KW.

    I have averaged 316WH/mile over 29,000miles of city and Interstate driving. I am running 19" Slipstream 8" wide wheels from a Model S with Michelin tires that match the diameter of the original 20" Slipstreams. Look "cool" with 22" or get good range with 20" wheels or great range and ride with 19" wheels. It's up to you.

    wow... you can fit a 19" wheel on MX?

    my wife gets better range than I do

    I drove from Portland to Cannon Beach (Oregon), about 85 miles with 3 passengers and luggage and had 68% left when we arrived. It was last June and was mainly highway driving, but did involve going over the coast range at speed - that was glorious, no more 4 bangers for us!

    I drove four miles yesterday.
  • edited August 2019
    Did you have range anxiety on that drive?
  • edited August 2019
    I have a sig X(#3XX) with 44,000 miles on it, 22" wheels and at full charge approx. 223 miles, not bad!

    @Model X Guy - 19” MS wheels on your MX? I didn’t think 19” wheels would clear the MX brake calipers. Any difference in ride in summer and winter weather compares to 20” wheels?
  • edited November -1
    To answer the OP, I have 20” factory wheels and tires. I get ~230 miles in the warm weather and ~210 miles in cold weather on surface and highway combined driving.

    I traded my MX90D with 22” wheels for a 100D with 20” because of the range. I’ve been reading these forums for 3 years and learned that 22” wheels use about 15% extra range because of their increased weight. (Thanks Teiggerplz et al.). Now I get to mymost common road trip destinations without having to stop for charging. I would recommend anyone who will use their MX for distance driving to get 20” wheels and have it on range mode. For city driving if money is not an object, use any size you please, any mode. My 2 cents’ worth.

    PS
    I wanted the 20” wheels on my first MX90 but my husband wouldn’t have it. He said the 20” didn’t good in his opinion. After I convinced him ab the issue w range, he realized he was wrong to go for looks only and getting the 20” on our second MX100 was the way to go!

    Hello everyone,,

    2017 build MX75D with 39,800 miles with life long 345 wh/mile and running 20" Contis (still have about 2,000 safe miles left before replacement). I have gone a max of 220 miles once under optimal conditions (that leg was 310 wh/mile average); another time I only got 150 miles towing a U-haul with 470 wh/mile average.

    It all boils down to how aggressive you drive (higher wh/mile) and the conditions of the weather such as head winds, rain, ambient temperature and of course road conditions like mountain terrain, curving roads.

    We recently got Raven LR. My average is about 280 W/mi mixed freeway and city driving, easy 290 miles on 90% charge.

    I am about to go pick up a 2019 Model X 100 d so how far should i plan on driving before i will need to recharge? I have about 2,300 miles to cover and was thinking about every 130-150 miles between stops. Am I close to correct?

    I have watched this closely and taken measurements. I bother a Tesla X Long Range in late June. It is a 100 KW battery and rated to 325 miles on a full charge. Bottom line, consistently for a combination of city and highway driving I get about 294 miles of range using the radio, A/C etc. I live in the Monterey area of CA and can drive to San Francisco and back on a single charge with well over 50 miles of range left when I return to my garage.

    Took my new Raven on a 1,000 mile shakedown cruise. From San Diego, went up 395 to Mammoth Lakes. Went through the East gate of Yosemite, through the park and over to San Francisco to see the kids. Then down Hwy one (Big Sur), over to Ojai and back home.

    Original full charge at home started us off at 326 rated miles. Used the computer to make my Supercharger stops and stopped for the amount of time suggested. Never had any range anxiety over mountains, across plains and down the highways.

    Car performance was all that...and a bag of chips. Smooth, powerful, great handling, quiet and reliable.

    Never felt that it was burning electrons faster than projected. Computer seemed to want us to stop around 80 miles remaining range, and it charged rapidly at that point till about 70% full. Very efficient way to travel.

    Noticed that gas prices have recently gone up, Saw lots of prices over $4.00 gallon. Made me quietly smile.

    Best car ever!

    Raven P100D , summer driving, 1 passenger, after 1400 miles I average 370w/m . so 270 miles theoretical (100% to 0%) For road trips this represent ~160 miles legs (summer , flat highway)

    The kicker is winter driving up the mountain with 5 passengers.... cut that effective range pretty much in half.

    Damn I didn't know we lose 10-20% by going with the 22".
    I'm getting really bad mileage. I charge to 288 and I can't make it to Atlantic City from Potomac, MD (183 miles). I have to charge midway.

    I have 2019 MX with 325 mile range. I typically drive the speed limit and typically get 95-105% range. My wife drives 5-10mph over limit or more and gets about 85% range.
