Among our readers it is difficult to find those who do not believe in the prospects of Tesla, which has almost become a household name for the entire line of electric vehicles from different manufacturers. About the fact that almost all major players in the market, including Porsche, release their electric cars few people know, but Tesla definitely heard everything. In General this is true, because these cars have set a trend of technology development in the coming years. And even those producers who do not really believe in these technologies anyway, just in case working in this direction, not to repeat the fate of Nokia, which fell after the release of the first iPhone, not believing in the prospects of this direction. Now Tesla has become even better. While nearly all. But how can this be achieved?
How much Tesla can travel without charging
Except that Tesla is the most popular electric car, it also has the largest autonomy to existing vehicles of similar design. I’m not talking about all sorts of concepts, among which may turn out to find something more long lasting, I’m talking about cars that you can go and buy. And then you sit in it the whole family, put a couple of suitcases and with the comfort to ride somewhere.
Even the bags here are not something conditional. On some models, Tesla is possible to travel. It is enough to read the map fast charging, or simply not to go further than their relatives in the neighbouring district.
If the path is shorter than 500 miles and not need to turn on the stove, you can be calm because you will get to your destination. You may not be able to drive more, but the figure I gave with the stock. If you believe the specifications, the maximum distance from charge to charge is 600 km for the Tesla Model S and 528 km for the Tesla Model X. For “treshki” runs are modest, but still impressive against the competitors.
Such autonomy is impossible to achieve due to a well elaborated design, the shape of the body with a low coefficient of drag, capacious battery and, of course, high efficiency. It is on the last paragraph and work with engineers and programmers to make their car more pleasing to their owners.
Update for Tesla
Tesla cars can be safely called gadgets on wheels. In them so many electronics and different functionsthat call this machine the mechanism will succeed only in the second turn. As you know, all the modern gadgets periodically receive updates when after the sale of their Creator understands how it is possible to improve device characteristics.
The updates are downloaded, installed and the user gets a new experience. Sometimes these updates and completely withdraw the new gadget at the consumer level, and sometimes only to patch holes and treat bugs that made the manufacturer, trying to quickly release a product on the market. Especially well it is familiar to us by smartphones.
Tesla cars also periodically receive updates. So, for example, update some of the model “flew” the autopilot. Now through software update, it became possible to increase the autonomy.
In absolute terms, the increase came not so big, but even those five extra percentage that will get users who are already very pleasant on the background of the fact that you do not even have to leave the car in service.
Increase that users will get after upgrading, will be 27 km for the Model S and 37 km for the Model X. Now the maximum runs on a single charge respectively 627 km 565 km.
Is it worth it to upgrade the firmware
Even if you think that these about thirty kilometers are not a great value, just imagine what is the distance that the average city resident rides a day to work and back. And yet it is the extra kilometers for the car, the autonomy of which leaves much to be desired and finally increased slightly. It’s additional mileage for that car, which was like the “rabbit Duracel” go significantly beyond many of neoconcrete.
