Highest Mileage

What is the highest odometer reading on a Model S?

I only have 5,300 miles.

How long have you owned it? (And that's something anyone replying to this thread should add).

WOW 29000+ miles in 6+ months! How much extra is the insurance premium for mileage like that?

ppape | July 13, 2013


What does P85 'Non Performance' mean??


gill_sans | July 13, 2013

@My5bAby, have you noticed any range degradation in your battery after 29,000 miles of driving? (I just clicked Submit on my order last night, and this morning I woke up thinking, "Oh crap, when am I going to have to replace that battery??")

My5bAby | July 13, 2013


Absolutely noticed no degradation what so ever. It is unbelievable. As for battery replacement, my guess is I will end up changing the battery by choice once new cheaper more power batteries are designed years from now. However by then Super chargers will be everywhere so I might just keep what I have, so I can try and have one of the high milage vehicles.

If you think I am exaggerating, consider the fact that no Prius owner has had to replace a battery. The original Prius was built in 1997. Now add to this the fact that the battery management on the Prius is significantly inferior to that on the Model S.

No significant increase in insurance.

Lastly I don't have the highest milage. Roughly 2-3 weeks ago when I was at 25K I was told by a Tesla employee that someone had 30K.

I was concerned about degradation when I ordered the car but now that concern is not even on the radar

A guy I work with last year had his 2006 (I think) Prius battery fail. But this seems to be rare after googling. My 2005 Prius has 150k miles and the battery is fine. Heh, anybody want to buy it? Need to sell to make room soon for my grey 60 ms coming in a few weeks!

keichhor | July 13, 2013

Hmmmm...We are getting off topic. My sister in law has a 2nd generation battery (Honda Civic Hybrid) that has had to be "tweaked" 2 times already. So she is basically only getting 2 MPG better than the traditionally Honda Civic now.

jman | July 13, 2013

Besides battery degradation, since that isn't a concern, has anyone who has racked up big miles 15,000 plus, had any problems besides the usual door handle difficulties that have been posted?
I mean things like changing tires before 20,000 miles on the 19" tires, or poor windshield blades, or scraping on the ground unexpectedly..... thanks! Jman from northeast.

Ideal Range - 285mi

Ideal Range was down at 280mi and had been since initial drop after first few months. According to another thread you can get the range back by doing full range charges for a period of time. I did this as a test and in just a few days it was back up to 285. I don't particularly worry about the slight loss (<10%) and I don't like to drive w/o regen when the battery is full, so I stopped the full range charges. The experiment seemed to be successful enough to satisfy me.
