2013 Tesla Model S: 10,000 Mile Update

October 8, 2013

2013 Tesla Model S

We took delivery of our 2013 Tesla Model S on February 19th. Seven months and seven days later we have driven the car over 10,000 miles.

There have been a few problems along the way. Problems with the car's interior screen as well as its sunroof and its accelerated tire wear, all of which we have documented. Also, our Tesla charger didn't exactly arrive on time. It was months behind the car in fact.

But there's no denying that we like driving this sedan. It continues to impress from behind the wheel, as well as the passenger seat.

    Any deterioration of fillup capacity or range, as with other EVs?

    Wow, that was such an insightful 10K update..... not.

    The Chevrolet Volt they tested has a range extender and they're still putting more miles-per-month on the Tesla. With the continued rollout of the supercharger network and the relatively recent installation of the high-powered wall charger at the Edmund's office, the pace could even increase.
