How many Wh/mile are you averaging? We are at 291.

We have driven our 60KWh Tesla MS for over 5,200 miles so far in about 4 months. We are averaging a rather surprising 291 Wh/mile. My wife drives it most of the time and yes, she is a 'safe' driver; always drives at or below speed limit.

I know it's not really an apples to apples comparison as terrain, weather and driving habits vary. But I thought it would be a fun exercise as many of you by now have several months under the belt and have a meaningful 'average'.

Type away :-)


40kWh, 19" tires, 85% hwy @70mph, since May 15th, 4,800 miles, 306 Wh/Mile.

Usually just me in the car, 60-mile round trip commute to/from work.

My trip A states 325 in my 60, but with mostly short distance drives the number is much higher. On freeway, weekend drives I average under 290.

S85 - 2000 miles in about four week averaging 314 overall, but usually under 300 on road trips.


Having driven 8400 miles, avg energy use is 353wh/mi. That is weighted toward cold weather (I took delivery in Phila on December 10) and averaged 380-400 during winter. Currently, I get 260-270 during the warm weather and each week my 353 decreases 2-3wh/mi.

S85 with 3388 miles in the four months we have owned the car. Avg Wh/mi is 292. Mostly commute driving on level city streets with short highway stretch - but with commute traffic, highway speeds usually no greater than 40 mph or so. Now, if I were to subtract out those laps around Richmond International Raceway during that Tesla event when I pegged the energy usage........

On my first road trip of 600 miles from Fremont to SOCAL, I averaged 287wh/mile.

I've given a bunch of test drives since and had to provide demonstrations of acceleration which raised my average into the low 300's.

But I think the MS has made me a better driver and I'll likely fall into the 270's for regular drives.

40kwh with dual chargers. 6500km since June 17 average 161kwh/km (261 kwh/mi). 154 kwh/km (247.8 kwh/mi) since Aug. 1. I'm retired, so not in a hurry. Few freeway trips. Our slow speed limits in Ontario help a lot. The first few days of ownership were the worst with many demos of it's amazing acceleration 8>)

Wow. Seems like a majority of the owners are getting it below 330. Am I the worse offender in the 400 range???

Any other owners who regularly get stuck in stop and go traffic?

BTW, I DO floor it from every stop light...

Yes, you're a wastrel, spewing polluting electrons into the atmosphere which ...

Oh, wait.

Thanks everybody for sharing your experiences. Seems like most of us are getting Wh/mile rating within a few %age points of EPA rating.

I hope TESLA releases the software update to reduce vampire losses soon. (Or has it already been done)? That would increase the milage by another 5-10%.

On most days we lose 7-8 miles of range to vampire losses. And we drive roughly 40 miles in day. If the vampire losses are reduced in half, that would be a 10% gain in mileage for us.

351 - S60, 14 weeks old, 1300 miles, all of it city stop & go driving in Washington DC where summer is pretty warm.

I have 2000+ miles and have averaged 315 Wh/mi. MS40 with 60 kWh battery.

MS60, Picked up Feb 15th. 5700 miles, averaging 307wh/mile. 20 mile round trip commute in Baltimore.

I know I sound like a rookie here, I have stock and have been following Tesla for 8 months now, but the EPA number of miles is only around 205 miles for the 60 battery,

my question, what does the 320 wh/m mean?? Look forward to getting my MS next May !!!!! Can't wait to join the club !!!

Hey jman:

60 KWh = 60,000 Wh

60,000 Wh / 205 miles = 292 wh/m


85KW about 9000 miles our average is 320 watts /mile. We are trending much lower 280 wpm on all my trips even going to Yosemite and back. I am the conservative driver my wife is the lead foot. Our average would be even better if I would quit giving test drives.

first 635 miles....374.... lots of demos on hill climbs. And a long trip into the mountains....

85 s+ no power saving features used . 100% Air conditioning

40kWh, 19" tires, 85% streets, since May 16th, 3,000 miles, 325Wh/Mile Lifetime. AC at 72F. 1,050 foot elevation gain on the way back home.

MS60, 6000 miles, 325 Wh/mi.

I realize this discussion isn't entirely about electricity cost, but where I live (WA), I could putt-putt around and use 275 Wh/mi and save $6/month! Never has zooming around been so cheap.....

ms60 pennsylvania, combined local driving and trips, about 2400 miles per month. 284 wh/mi for last 11,300 miles. Last 1200 miles in summer averaged 267 wh/mi using ac normally.

MS60, 3000 miles, 321 Wh/mi, but dropping fast - averaged 350-360 first thousand miles or so.

60 kwh, 19" tires, 7,800 miles, Daily commuter with passenger, 335 kwh/mile.

Sorry if this has been covered before, but I'm curious: how do you convert kWh/mile into cost per mile? I understand that electricity costs vary throughout the country....

60 KWh = 60,000 Wh

60,000 Wh / 205 miles = 292 wh/m

60 kWh, 19", 4100 miles over flat mostly suburban Midwest roads, no AC/ pano and front windows open 90% of the time, steadily down to 307 Wh/m until I switched to Sport steering and now back up to 310 Wh/mile and climbing.

I know there are more people at > 400Wh.
Way to go Mathew98, you knocked me off the top spot (that I didn't deserve).

Lolachamp, I want to see your numbers!

337 Wh/mi after 6700 miles and 3 months time. Oklahoma with usually hot temps (those this year not so bad). I have taken several road trips, including 267 mile from Tulsa to Dallas on one charge! Thankfully, a cool night so AC not required...

355 Wh/mi at 1100 miles total. Still in demo mode but I can see I will be down closer to 300 Wh/mi when I get to normal driving.

sig performance, 21", about 7300 miles, average 355 Wh/m
lots of short trips, on long trips I get better numbers.
