Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone out there has experienced or knows what is going on with my scenario.
I have had my model x for 8 months. when i look at my trip meter every time i charge it, it never represents the amount of power i have in my pack. Lets go into a deep dive so that you can understand what i am talking about.
I have a Model X 75D. This means i have a 75 Kw pack. I charge it to 90% every time i drive. This means that i have approx 67 KW in my pack after I charge. I have tried many times and i get the same result.
Normal scenario, I drive 2 and from work every day, at a moderate 20 degree Celsius. I have every option enabled and on, included heat / cool, radio, etc... when I finished my pack my display reads that i have used 37 KW. I am in shock at this point to think that the accessories use up almost half of my power.
Scenario 2: I drive to and form work, with every accessory disabled. Put it in range mode, chill mode and make sure i am not wasting a single drop of power on anything such as AC/ heat, music, dashcam, sentry mode, or even online tracking. and the most i can squeeze out of the pack is 43 KW.
Now my regen braking works and works well, there is no doubt. When i go down some steep hills i see the reading for KW used rolls back as if it was recharging the battery, however my power meter never reverses and says i have more power it just keeps going down down down.
I am curious to know what other people use when they run out, how many KW does your car say you have used when you plug it in. If you are in the 60 KW range i will definitely take my car in to get fixed. I understand accessories take power so not all power will go to the motors. But i am not getting anywhere even close to the rated mileage, and i never expect to i just want to know where does all the power go.
