Observations on driving a Tesla Model S for 12 minutes at 125+mph


Fun starts at 2:15. Cruise control only goes up to 176 km/hr. Consumption was 520 Wh/km (840 Wh/mi) which is about 2.5 times the ~300Wh/mile  65 mph consumption. Newer D Teslas will top out around 155. Not bad for a car without gears.
