Does anyone know the optimal speed to travel 1000 miles? Assume that recharging is done with a supercharger.
Also use the numbers:
45 mph = 378 miles
50 mph = 350 miles
55 mph = 321 miles
60 mph = 295 miles
65 mph = 271 miles
Assume that all road conditions are perfect, no others cars on the road, and that there is a working supercharger available with no awaiting.
These are numbers I got from a computer at the Tesla store.
If you have numbers for high speeds please add those numbers.
The question is at which speed will take the car go 1000 miles in the least amount of time?
