Highest Mileage

What is the highest odometer reading on a Model S?

I only have 5,300 miles.

How long have you owned it? (And that's something anyone replying to this thread should add).

Delivered March 2013, 5,300 Miles

April 29 6100 miles

Multiple people have discussed taking their car in for the 12,500 mile check-up on other threads

april 13, 6700 miles. 1 free tire rotation

Almost 16K

March 18th: 8,125 miles.

April 9th, 5700 wonderful Tesla grinning miles...getting ready to go in for y 6k tire rotation.

Delivered 3/17/13; 10,200 miles (three long trips)

Dec 22, 2012 P85 Non Performance

29,041 miles

January, 9000 miles

WOW 29000+ miles in 6+ months! How much extra is the insurance premium for mileage like that?


What does P85 'Non Performance' mean??


@My5bAby, have you noticed any range degradation in your battery after 29,000 miles of driving? (I just clicked Submit on my order last night, and this morning I woke up thinking, "Oh crap, when am I going to have to replace that battery??")


Absolutely noticed no degradation what so ever. It is unbelievable. As for battery replacement, my guess is I will end up changing the battery by choice once new cheaper more power batteries are designed years from now. However by then Super chargers will be everywhere so I might just keep what I have, so I can try and have one of the high milage vehicles.

If you think I am exaggerating, consider the fact that no Prius owner has had to replace a battery. The original Prius was built in 1997. Now add to this the fact that the battery management on the Prius is significantly inferior to that on the Model S.

No significant increase in insurance.

Lastly I don't have the highest milage. Roughly 2-3 weeks ago when I was at 25K I was told by a Tesla employee that someone had 30K.

I was concerned about degradation when I ordered the car but now that concern is not even on the radar

A guy I work with last year had his 2006 (I think) Prius battery fail. But this seems to be rare after googling. My 2005 Prius has 150k miles and the battery is fine. Heh, anybody want to buy it? Need to sell to make room soon for my grey 60 ms coming in a few weeks!

Hmmmm...We are getting off topic. My sister in law has a 2nd generation battery (Honda Civic Hybrid) that has had to be "tweaked" 2 times already. So she is basically only getting 2 MPG better than the traditionally Honda Civic now.

Besides battery degradation, since that isn't a concern, has anyone who has racked up big miles 15,000 plus, had any problems besides the usual door handle difficulties that have been posted?
I mean things like changing tires before 20,000 miles on the 19" tires, or poor windshield blades, or scraping on the ground unexpectedly..... thanks! Jman from northeast.

Delivery June 23rd 2013 Model S P85

gmd530 about 7100 miles/month

Your car would go high in this:

Delivered Oct 21, 2013. 3560 miles

should't we call this over 50k miles, who cars if you have 5k or even 20k at this point?

Delivered 11/11/13 S60 12700 miles

Delivered 12/22/2012
27,000 mi
Ideal Range - 285mi

Ideal Range was down at 280mi and had been since initial drop after first few months. According to another thread you can get the range back by doing full range charges for a period of time. I did this as a test and in just a few days it was back up to 285. I don't particularly worry about the slight loss (<10%) and I don't like to drive w/o regen when the battery is full, so I stopped the full range charges. The experiment seemed to be successful enough to satisfy me.

You didn't like be an un-regenerate high charger? ;)

typo: "like being an ..."

Ive taken a few more trips since 2.8 and now im at 81,303
