    That definitely holds true with cold temps.
    I haven't noticed any overhead up to 90. Although I haven't tested above that.

    In any event, to the OP, as a Tesla owner I would not recommend relying...

    While the battery heater is running there is definitely a chunk of overhead.
    However, under normal conditions I get about 4 miles per hour charged on a 110 Volt outlet. This would indicate not much...

    The biggest problem I would see is charging in the winter (if he is also in IL).
    A 110/120 will not supply enough power to both warm and charge the battery.

    Unless he has the ability to charge at...

    I've been a longtime member of both forums, and an owner of both vehicles.

    CR is very clear that the 100 score does not mean the car is perfect. They noted a couple things they didn't like that much.
    Their testing formula though generated a 103, so they re calibrated the...

    Tesla has a blog up about it.
    Basically, it is an experiment. They are trying it out to see if a referral program would allow them to do without as many Tesla stores, or even reduce the number.

    This is why Tesla is testing this process out.

    They want to see if this generates sales that wouldn't otherwise be generated.
    I strongly suspect Tesla won't continue this beyond the test date due...

    Sure they could have. They could have issued stock at the end of the biggest two-day sell off investors have seen in months ;)

    The more EVs the better.
    I don't care that it is not as good, as long as it increases the market, I'm good with it.

    I won't be buying it, but I am glad to see more manufacturers get in the game.

    The trade offs for some.
    For me, and a number of others I know, the ICE cars, and to a lesser extent, any car that uses gas (or hydrogen) is far more of a hassle factor.

    Most people just can't...

    I know a number of very passionate conservatives that are huge Volt and Tesla Fans.

    Not really. There are many people who bought TSLA at a price under $50, many more under $100 and even more under $200.

    Sure, it is volatile and definitely has bumps in the road, but there are far...

    Let's see, I bought at an average of $35/share. Currently share price is a over $235/share.
    The new offering will "dilute" shares by less than 2%.
    I like TSLA's version of share dilution.

    While I don't see this as necessary for a home owner, it is an improvement in terms of efficiency, over inductive charging.
    The fact you don't need to dig through concrete is another advantage.

    Doesn't charger efficiency fit in there somewhere?
    If so, if the charger is slightly less efficient it may explain it.
