1) The Tesla report to share holders reports that they anticipate beginning deliveries ahead of the stated July date by starting in June! (Gotta love under promising and over delivering). That gives me hope of getting mine before the end of Summer. 2)The latest blog reports the EPA 2 cycle range estimates for the Model S--and they are Awesome! Under the following conditions: Constant speed (such as using cruise control) Flat ground, no wind Climate control OFF or using vent only (no heat or air conditioning) 300 lbs of vehicle load (driver plus passenger or cargo) Windows up, sunroof closed Tires inflated to recommended pressures New battery pack (<1 year, <25,000 miles) Those are some really excellent numbers that are personally satisfying to me as it means I can drive from my home to several major metropolitan areas (Tulsa, Little Rock, Kansas City, and St.Louis) even at interstate speeds on a single charge. I can reach Memphis with more conservative driving and/or back roads. Now, it is pretty hilly in these areas, I usually have more than 300lbs cargo, and typically need some climate control, so realistically I may need a brief top-up charge, but there are options all around and I wouldn't need much. Just stop for some BBQ and a drink for 30-45 min and I should be good to go.:cheer2: EPA 5-cycle mileage rating will be 265 miles.
