I'm considering buying a Tesla S. Presently, I have a Chevrolet Volt.
In the summer I can drive 43-46 miles on a charge of 13KwH
In the winter when it is really cold here in New Hampshire, I get about 30 miles on a charge if I drive without the heater or the defroster on. I also use a fair amount of gas to heat the battery. Sometimes I have used 4/10ths of a gallon of gas while traveling a half a mile.
As we have all seen in a recent news article, the electric range for the Tesla S also decreases in the winter.
Do any of you living in New Hampshire, Vermont or Maine, have OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics reports for the Tesla S.
I sure would like to know how much electricity I will be using to drive the Tesla S 100 miles on a day when it is 15 degrees, have snow tires on and have the heater and defroster on.
