Successful CNN Model S trip DC to Boston on CNN Homepage Now
Looks like the CNN crew had fun and drove Tesla Model S from DC to Boston last night without any issues. Go look at CNN homepage. They had camaras with them and 3 people so CNN tv wil probably be doing news story
No mention of miles traveled comparing the car's projected range? How many miles remaining when he made it to the charging station. What was the outside temp? This guy is a reporter? . Did he write it before or after the road trip?
Just read the story. They drove 60 on the Jersey Tpk. Most cars go between 75/80. It's a joke. In the middle on the story there is a video promote starring Elon. Hardly objective reporting. Did Tesla paid CNN for the promotion video? Why was it there? It's an I love Eloon video. Shameful! What's needed in a real story on a cold day by Cory Johnson of Bloomberg.
Most electric and hybrid car drivers operate their cars a little differently. We frequently drive a bit slower, coast a bit more, and value smooth acceleration and gradual decreases in speed rather than rapid starts or heavy braking. I drive 60 mph on E or eco mode on highways too to maximize range. But when I need to overtake or merge onto the highway I put the car on D mode for fast acceleration. People drive slower now to save money on gas too. There's no crime in going the speed limit on the slow lane of the highway.
