The Tesla Model S 70 (2015) achieves a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 5.5 seconds (placing it at №262 among 662 electric vehicles) and attains a maximum speed of 140 mph.

Its powertrain provides a power output of up to 235 kW (315 hp) and a torque of 325 lb-ft.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

The estimated How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range? for Tesla Model S 70 (2015) falls between 194–237 miles, ranking it №433 out of 662 electric vehicles. Several conditions can influence this range:

  • Speed: The battery drains faster at higher speeds.
  • Temperature: Extreme temperatures can impact range.
  • Terrain: Range is reduced on hilly or mountainous terrain.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving behaviors, such as frequent acceleration and braking, decrease efficiency.
  • Feature utilization: Climate control and media system usage also affect range.

These figures are approximations, and your actual driving range may vary. When planning trips, consider these factors and be prepared for potential charging stops.

For trip planning assistance, utilize the EV Navigation interactive map.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?
