Edmunds.com's Model S long term road test has generally been fair but this article has some possibly questionable items. Not pulling the Broder card but am interested in what owners think and whether there's an issue with the author, the car or something else? Maybe he's been driving well over 75 or routinely punching it to get the "Tesla smile" but still-180 miles?
Here is one of the claims that was troubling: "The drive isn't terribly long; 300 miles or so. But it's full of hills, traffic and relatively quick highways. There's just no way I'd ever get the claimed 265-mile range on this drive. 200 if I'm lucky. 180 seems more reasonable."
