Can A Tesla Model S Drive From Copenhagen To Oslo In 6 Hours?

OCT 16 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 12

Bjørn continues to test the potential of a Tesla Model S P100D.

Our Norwegian speed skating friend got ahold of a Tesla Model S P100D recently and has performed several tests. This may be because the Model 3 has taken Tesla’s flagship car out of the limelight, or because Bjørn is a Model X owner, so many of his tests have been tackled in his personal Tesla: Optimus Prime. Regardless of the reason, it’s nice to have some fresh Model S video content to share, aside from the daily dose of drag races.

Recently, Nyland put the Model S P100D to a simple range test. Following this, he decided to travel at 125 mph for over an hour to test out the vehicle’s stamina. While the range test didn’t impress him as much as one would have expected, we were happy to report that the stamina test proved that the car can go and go without overheating, which is not what was the case in the past.

Now, Bjørn wants to see if he can make it from Copenhagen to Oslo in six hours. According to Google maps, this should be the case, but remember, he’ll have to charge at some point. Road tripping in an EV is still a point of contention for many naysayers. Watch the video to see if he pulls it off.

Copenhagen – Oslo challenge in Tesla Model S P100DL

According to Google Maps, traveling from Copenhagen to Oslo takes about six hours. I wanted to match that time in a Tesla Model S.

Bjorn videos are very interesting, a little bit too long many times, but we can skip some parts.
Model S did well, but to annoy Tesla fanboys I’m not impressed with range. Highway range should be over 340 miles/547km and it was shy of that. Not sure if the car started with 100% battery but that seems more or less obvious.
This is the best mass produced electric car available in the highest spec… even if I suppose the non performance version has a little bit more range.

No doubt.

It’s up to the user to get the most out of the battery 🔋

If they have a lead foot like I do, they will pay for it in a lack of overall range.

huh? Bjorn in the very beginning told that real life highway range is 400 km, EPA highway is pathetic 48mph avg

Alex

I was referring to Tesla official numbers. But the “highway range” can be very different things (speed).

Because I lived half-time in Sweden from 2008 – 2017 and have driven the same roads that Bjørn drove, I enjoy being reminded of the surroundings even though this adds to the video’s length.

Bjørn complained about Norwegian “left-huggers” (I believe that’s his term) driving in the left lane rather than using it just for passing. Compared with U.S. drivers, I found European drivers, in general, were very much more aware that the left lane should be used for passing and not just driving. As a result, European traffic seems much more orderly and predictable than U.S. traffic.

If you want the maximum range, you need to get the Tesla S: 100D, not the S100D. Dropping the performance version S. The S has higher performance electric motors, so, if you use that acceleration of course your range will be lower.

I always wanted to know this!

Not wanting to be spamming or anything, but I have a Tesla channel as well with road trips, autopilot testing of each version on the same test route and other kinds of tests or tips and tricks videos. So, you might be interested to check that out too, as a fresh view next to longtime video maker Bjorn and all the other drag race channels.

According to maps it takes 6h45min and 600km. Charging needed. Cannot be possible, even not with ice car , ( maybe at 180 km or so )

Steven

Long distance, I average about 85-90kph, charging and everything included, when I’m alone. 80-85kph when traveling with the family
