The electric vehicle Tesla Model 3 traveled on its own 1000 km from one charge without a driverJuly 18, 2018
What the man failed to do two months ago made an autopilot – it’s a record of a “super kilometer” on a full charge of the battery of an electric vehicle Tesla Model 3. At the end of May, the Americans drove 975 km in energy saving mode, quite a bit before reaching the round figure 1000 km, and now another team from Germany achieved this goal, having overcome 622 miles (1001 km).
Recall that in the “hypermiling” mode, enthusiasts try to travel the maximum possible distance, using the optimal constant speed and other tricks that help to extend the power reserve. This time, the absence of a driver was added to the piggy bank, which helped to reduce the overall weight and to use up to millimeters the calibrated trajectory and speed of movement.
The experiment was performed by the representatives of the German car rental service nextmove, who used the closed test track DEKRA in Kletvica (Germany). At the same time, two Tesla Model 3 electric vehicles moved around the track at once – one with the man behind the wheel and the second with the Spacy mannequin (the younger brother of Starman, flying into space on the Tesla Roadster) with the Tesla autopilot on. It is significant that a man lost to artificial intelligence, having traveled 23 km (14 miles) less.
To overcome 1001 km of electric vehicle took about 28 hours, the average speed of 36 km / h, the energy consumption of 7 kWh per 100 km of the road. In parallel, the team nextmove tested the older model Tesla Model S 100D, which lasted from a single charge of 1128 km (701 miles).
