Tesla’s Model S, in its most luxurious, P100D variety, officially has a 337 -mile range.
But if you drive very, very carefully, you are able to extend that by more than two hundred miles, as recently shown by two Tesla enthusiasts.
The practice is called hypermiling, and it involves driving in such a way as to achieve the biggest possible range on one ga tank or accusation. This usually entails driving slowly , not utilizing air conditioning, and even trying to get tail wind on your side to squeeze that extra mile of range.
Steven Peeters and Joeri Cools took a slightly different approach than usual, though. As was indicated in a blog post, unearthed by Electrek , the two took a Tesla Model S P100D to a closed, 16 -mile loop in Belgium, and simply drove around in circles for virtually 24 hours until the battery said: enough.
As a outcome, the two fanatics drove their Tesla 560 miles or 901.2 kilometers on a single charge.
This beats the previous hypermiling record for a Tesla Model S, held by Casey Spencer who managed to squeeze more than 550 miles of scope from a single accusation of his 85 D in 2015.
Hypermiling is not the best way to test a vehicle’s scope, as it is simply not the lane vehicles are typically driven( and in many cases it’s impossible to drive this slowly many freeways, for example, have a minimum hasten restriction ).
But it’s a cool lane to test the car’s limits and informed about the most efficient way to drive in this case, for example, Peeters and Cools learned that the P100D is most efficient when driven at 24.8 mph.
It’s also a route to get noticed by Elon Musk, who claims even this record is ripe for thumping if you’ve got the right tires.
Over 1000 km is still possible in a 100 D with the right tires https :// t.co /8 czN3dVZE 4
