First road trip in the @Tesla Model 3 Performance:

Zurich🇨🇭- Geneva🇨🇭- Les Houches 🇫🇷 - Nice 🇫🇷 - Zurich🇨🇭 (1400km)

Good opportunity to test #supercharger, #destinationcharger and compare consumption to forecast from @RouteBetter

Will share my experience from the road 🤓
Start in ZRH:
SoC: 38% (11°)

First SC (Kriegstetten):
Arrived with: 15% (14°)
95.6km / 1:17h / 182Wh/km
Charged to: 41% with constant 116kW
2nd Stop for Lunch 🥗(Lully):
Arrived with: 20% (15°)
82.9km / 1:04h / 186Wh/km
Charged to: 88% (from 97kW to 37kW)

Charged way higher then planned because #supercharger can charge faster then you can eat 🤷🏻‍♂️😄
Arrived at the Geneva Motor Show:
SoC: 61% (20)°
109km / 1:29h / 178Wh/km

Even the performance model can be driven very efficient 👌🏻 ~160Wh/km over 50km with #Autopilot and speed of 100-130km/h!
Arrived at the hotel for tonight, after heavy traffic but with a great view of the Mont Blanc 🏔
After ~100km still 30% SoC 👍🏻
Unfortunately the hotel destination charger 🔌 is iced 🤨
And even worse the „old man with hat“ Mercedes driver even blocked two plugs 😒
Not able to read or just being a jerk 🤦🏻‍♂️
Problem solved 🙌🏻
Off to another day on the road:
- Starting with 91% SoC from the Hotel destination charger 🔌
- Getting into a toasty pre-heated car with a warm battery 🔋

#DrivingTheFuture 👌🏻
Arrived at the lunch location in Varazze 🇮🇹 Changed strategy and went there on a single charge since lunch is needed anyway.
14% SoC
304.8km / 3:07h / 185Wh/km 👌🏻

Average over 50km with 125-135km/ is ~220Wh/km. So no problem even on the european Autobahn 🛣😉
Charged to 85% SoC in less than 40min, just enough to have some 🍝

From 110kW at the beginning to around 60kW towards the end.
Arrived in Nice 🇫🇷 with 45% SoC after 160km (187Wh/km)

Very pleasant trip so far with ~95% driven with #Autopilot engaged. Makes driving surprisingly less tiring 👍🏻
Some stats from the return trip, Nice 🇫🇷 to Zurich🇨🇭:

First coffee ☕️ stop in Imperia 🇮🇹 to charge from 23% SoC to 90% in 45min (117kW at peak).

Quick pee break at Dorno 🇮🇹
198.4km / 1:59h / 201Wh/km
Charging wasn’t needed but if you can get from 35% -> 51% in just 8min, why 🤷🏻‍♂️
Last 🔌 stop of the trip at Melide🇨🇭for dinner 🍝
SoC: 23%
106.8km / 1:14h / 193Wh/km

Charged with full power (114kW peak) to 90% in 42min. Plenty of juice for a fun drive home to Zurich 🛣
Overall 🔋
- 1’470km
- 282kWh used
- Average consumption: 192Wh/km !!(without driving extra conservative)👌🏻👏🏻
Conclusion 🤓
- Awesome car 👏🏻
- P model is very efficient, LR/RWD will absolutely kill it 😉
- No issue doing road trips, #supercharger network is a huge USP for $TSLA
- @RouteBetter estimates helpful, but pre-planning not needed
- #Autopilot awesome, very few disengagements 👌🏻
