This car has a few glitches, but the range is absolute bullshit.
Yesterday I drove Morristown to Trenton and home. The car started charged to 278 miles and I traveled 120 miles, got home with a sliver of battery left—showing 40ish miles range left but that is not reliable because it’s clearly off by about a third. I could easily have had other appointments after, but the car needed 12hrs to charge.
Last week I drove to Philly and back. Should’ve been easy on a full charge (310 miles, because I wanted to be sure) at less than 200 miles. Instead I had to sit at a charger for 40 minutes just outside of Philly. I showed 29 miles range when I got there. It was a warmish 50° on this day.
Talked to Tesla they blamed vampire drain or temperature but insist the car is operating correctly.
I have dual motors non P. This piece of shit is not practical if you use a car to actually drive.
