Bjorn Reviews Tesla Model S 70D – Road Trip

Bjørn Nyland took on an extended test drive - from Oslo to Bodø and back in the Tesla Model S 70D, one of the entry level Teslas - in fact, the least expensive with AWD.

And by 'extended test drive' we mean both in length of drive, and in the review itself, as Bjørn cut the test drive into two parts.  (The first appearing above, 2nd below)

According to the first part of the review, the 70D averaged 187 Wh/km or 301 Wh/mi.  Overall, the driving experience was great for Bjørn, especially in wet conditions.

Titanium Metallic looks good. Interesting is the license plate number "EL 68000". So many Teslas these days in Norway. Tesla alone is approaching 10,000!

The 70D tested had Next Gen seats, which are excellent for driving (especially on winding roads), but could be considered too tight for just resting for some.  "(Next Generation seats) could be a bit cramped if you are, how will I say it...if you love junk food"

According to Bjørn, the Next Gen seats turned out to be good for sleeping though - "I slept like a baby" (yeah, sleeping was part of the test).

Part 2 of the test drive was just updated on Thursday, Bjørn notes the following (along with rethinking the seats):

“Second part of the 70D review. On this video I drive 1200 km in one day. The Millennium Falcon (P85) did the same trip in 16.5 hours. The goal is to drive 70D in less than 17 hours.”
