Model S Acceleration Slower as Battery Depletes...
So, for a while now, whenever I supercharge my car at night, my 70D seems to accelerate smoother and faster--I thought it was just me, but I just heard from a reviewer on you-tube that the car does accelerate slower as your battery depletes.
At what battery charge level does this slower acceleration happen? And does the car tell you this somewhere on the dashboard?
No wonder when I took some friends for a spin, the car seemed to not thrust as fast as it did on random days. So much for showing off. I then had to tell them, "sorry, this is the slow car, I bought the slow car..."
Perhaps I might have been lower on the battery charge level at the time . . . or 1 - 2 extra passengers makes the extra difference in weight to hinder thrust power? They weren't particularly heavy people. 150lbs the most.
