That's such a difficult question to answer, too many variables like traffic conditions, your right foot, outside temperature etc. Thing is if you drive around like that on a daily basis the range computer will lower the range for a full charge, but then if you go on a long trip, you are conscious of the range so you drive differently and will get a better range.
From a day to day perspective obviously if you are not doing, lets say 200 miles, then don't worry about it and enjoy, because i thought it was brilliant, we are talking S class levels of refinement only faster, and not just the acceleration off the line but the on-the-move speed is amazing, just think about getting into a gap and your there. I loved it. I particularly liked the ability to have the rear view camera on all the time on half the big screen, useful extra safety measure, cant understand why more cars don't have it.

Re: Tesla
I had a p85d 4 years ago, annoying to drive long distances as the supercharger network (back then) was incomplete. the sat nav would route you via chargers and the bi-annual trip to Cornwall took 2 hours longer there and back. Insane mode took about 35 mins to get the engine ready for and would spunk about 10% of the power. Might be better now

What did you find a true day to day mileage was on a charge that they say was for 300 miles?

I am interested in getting one in spring and be interesting to know. not that often i will do a 300 miles trip without a break past one of their super chargers or an overnight somewhere but be good to gauge.

cheers mate

Test drove the e-Golf yesterday.
It's very nice indeed.



This motoring journalism lark is piss easy.

Re: Tesla
I find Teslas a bit boring to look at. Getting a bit dated.
I quite like the Jaguar ipace.

Not quite sure what your point is mate, Westside said a Model S has a range of 300 miles, I owned one for 2yrs, i'm telling you it hasn't unless you drive like someone on a vintage rally or a test driver trying to get the maximum range for a manufacturers figures.

At least with hydrogen, when it escapes, instead of forming volatile fumes, it just dissipates straight up if it can.

Re: Tesla
It's funny how water contains one of the most flammable substances and one of the most powerful oxidizers, yet combined can suppress some fires

Re: Tesla
Isn't Hydrogen a bit* flammable?

And petrol is excellent as a fire suppressant.

I know a couple of Tesla owners who park on a street permit, came out in the morning to find their batteries gone, didn’t get far (drivers not thieves).

Re: Tesla
Hydrogen fuel cell cars are electric cars. The hydrogen is just another way of storing the energy. I think there may be some kind of hybrid in the future, so you can choose which way to fuel up.
As for engines burning hydrogen, it will work, but as with petrol engines, will be less efficient and have more moving parts to break. Will extract a bit more life from older technologies, but will always be a compromise.

Hydrogen is the way to go so I hear.
But won't need cell power,it will just be burnt as a Water Fuel.
Apparantly the UK are leaders in the technology needed to make this happen in totally Green and efficient way.
As with most renewable's it is progressing quicker than was thought possible. Hydrogen can and will use the some transport systems that are currently in use. Thus no need for different chaannels of distribution.
Aramco the worlds biggest polluters and Oil company are only trying to go public as it knows Oil will not be needed in the same wasy within the next 10yrs.
They are in it self trying to get the funds to be able to convert and seize upon the opportunity to get into hydrogen.
The Olympic games in TOKYO is going to be fueled by Hydrogen.
Shell are pumping billions into this old-new fuel (it's been around since 1842 ).

Electric cars are just an intermediate step.

Hydrogen cell power is the way to go.

Germany and China investing massively in R&D.

The BMW i3 Sport edition's marketing literature says that it can. Apparently it can't.

The Kia e-Niro could be the game changer. Almost 300 miles on a charge in a fully sized, normal-driving, sort-of-affordable (£36k) SUV. It's already sold out in this country.

Re: Tesla
Car chargers, should be compulsory on all new build houses. Obviously not practical for some apartment blocks, but if you have allocated parking, it should be compulsory to have a vehicle charger.

As the average car journey (one way) is about 10 miles, range doesn't seem to be much of an issue.

The loss of revenue to the government when we don't use petrol/diesel in duty and VAT, is a huge issue. About £40 billion annually.
