Range vs. Speed Graph

Range vs. Speed Graph

This is the first time I've seen this data published for Model S, although it's just based on a computer model:

Assumptions:

Traveling constant speed
85kWh battery
Flat ground
No wind
Heat and A/C are turned off
Sunroof and windows are closed
Driver and cargo weigh less than 300 lbs.
Tires are properly inflated
Battery pack with less than a year or 25,000 miles of service
