Mon plaisir.Merci pour ces belles précisions... I know that my son with model 3 has increase his range because of reducing his speed... (as his is md, specialist) sometimes he has to speed up...!!! But as we are retired (66) we will follow the distance of about 300 km from one supercharger to another one (we expected to get 300 km within 20 minutes...???).
300 km is about 186 miles. My X would normally need about 55.9 kWh to cover that distance. If I were to get that in 1/3 hr the charger would have to deliver 167.7 kW. I have found that the Tesla super chargers deliver, on average, 72.9 kW. This includes the effects of taper. On my last Ogden to Brattleboro run I used 61.1 kWh (higher than normal because of he rain) and it took me 43 minutes to charge back up to 80%. On average I find Super Charger sessions last 28 minutes.
I think the forecast from the car's computer is pretty good. It knows how much energy you have used to drive the last 5 - 30 miles and it knows about all the hills in front of you. It can, and does, based on this come up with a pretty good estimate of how much charge you will have at the destination assuming that everything stays the same. As there is no way it can predict the onset of a storm or a quartering wind shifting to a head or tail wind or whether you will drop off a hefty passenger and his anvil it can't really do better. But if any of those things does happen it will sense that and readjust its forecast accordingly.As I was in econometrics method for the largest financial institution in Québec, I would be happy to collect data and see my forecast... but M. Elon Musk should give that with the computer inside the car...
