TOCWA, along with AEVA, wanted to see if a Tesla Model S would be more efficient in its use of energy than an efficient diesel vehicle. So a test was run with a Volvo V40 T5 2L diesel against the same amount of power from a diesel generator.
Which do you think used less fuel for the same 100km run?
It’s also covered in this article at RenewEconomy
and this one at Elektrek

thx for “Diesel Efficiency Challenge”.
I’m missing a pic of the P85D’s screen, that shows, that it used the charged 18 kWh during the drive – and not more or less ?
and my 85D
I will need to locate the correct picture, but it was a very good day for driving for both cars. It actually used less than 18kwh to cover the 104.6km.
thx – great job !
