I have one question. How good is the performance of the battery pack and the Tesla cars in Highlands (over 3500 mts (11,482 feet))
We have a lot of cities in my country that are above 3,500 mts. Like Cuzco or Puno. Also some pass through the mountains that are above 4,500 mts (14,763 feet)
If I travel in my ICE I know that I will lose at least 10 to 15% of performance due to less oxygen in the atmosphere. I know that oxygen doesn't affect batteries but what about altitude and temperature?
For example I had an Gen II Ipod and it doesn't work over 3,500 meters but I'm not sure if it was due to the battery or the hard disk
