Tesla Model S 3 X Demonstrated Battery Tech Advantages by Real World Summer Range Test

The range is one of the most important criteria in choosing an electric car, which is why this issue is of particular importance. All Tesla cars differ from their competitors in that they have the longest range, which is also supported by real tests.

Norwegian road assistance company NAF conducted a summer real test for 29 electric vehicles. This test primarily showed the ratio of the real range (world harmonized light-duty vehicles test procedure - WLTP) to the one declared by the manufacturer. The test was conducted by ordinary drivers in normal driving. The route consisted of driving around the city and highway at a speed from 37 mph to 68 mph.

Cars drove until they were completely stopped. After that, they were evacuated on a tractor to the nearest charging station.

Vehicles drove through Oslo in the direction of Jovik. All the cars drove through Lignaster, and continued north towards Dombos. Cars with the longest mileage drived through Herkinne and Foldal. These vehicles further climbed to nearly 620 miles. This means that the cars with the longest mileage have passed two mountain crossings.

All cars were tested on the same day and traveled along the same route. Drivers were instructed to monitor movement and speed. Drivers were encouraged to actively use regeneration - in urban environments and downhill.

All cars were 100% charged per night in the garage. All cars started cold, i.e. without preheating the cabin or battery. All worked in eco-mode or similar, and the air conditioner was set to 20 degrees.

According to the test results, all Tesla vehicles showed the best result.

NAF's test of Model 3 showed that the battery size in the Long Range model is up to 78 kWh with a real power of about 72 kWh. The range meets the requirements for reducing anxiety and is a good alternative for most people. The Tesla Model 3 was able to drive 380 miles.

The Tesla Model X is starting to become a famous landmark on Norwegian roads, with a 340 mile run and attractive Falcon Wing doors. The Tesla SUV quickly became a popular family car in Norway.

The Tesla Model S revolutionized the electric car market when it came to Norway in 2013. The car is built in a completely new way, with a large battery pack. In this test, the car was able to overcome 401 miles.

Cars from companies other than Hyundai KONA electric, which was able to drive 353 miles, regardless of price, showed lower results, then all Tesla's.
