Has anyone checked it out yet? I just noticed it today - they've added some stuff about range estimation, etc. Pretty cool.
yea, I noticed today, but it's still missing on EU verions of the web. Looks great though :-)
However if I click on link FORUM from MY TESLA it doesn't put me on forum page but on ENTHUSIASTS page (and this page is bit messed - looks differently than if directly clicking on ENTHUSIASTS page).
PS: I guess this topic should have been created in General section, not Model S...
Thought about that, but I only ever check the Model S section so figured no one would see it in General. Also, one could argue that almost anything related to Tesla could go on the Model S page since that's now their only production car...
Recheck the pages that were "messed up". I logged in during the late stages of the refurb of the site last nite, and many pages were "half-baked", but are fixed now. Slicker new look.
I like it! Informative and even a little whimsical!
to be more specific: when I click on FORUM link (right side column) from MY TESLA it sends me to www.teslamotors.com/en_EU/enthusiasts/forum while usually forum is on www.teslamotors.com/en_EU/forums
www.teslamotors.com/en_EU/enthusiasts/forum looks very similar to www.teslamotors.com/en_EU/enthusiasts however it's bit messed (not much, looks like css file is not correct)
it's not a big deal. Since Tesla is company from Silicon Valey I guess they will fix it soon ;-)
Whomever built this deserves a pat on the back. This is really well designed and implemented. Very nice!
I discovered that if you click through to another page and then 'back into' the new GO ELECTRIC page using the back button on your browser, the default auto-fill numbers in the user-settable boxes can be a little wacky. For instance, electricity priced at $400 per kWh and gasoline at $0.15 per gallon. This tends to the skew the results in favor of ICEmobiles... ;-)
Geez, not even in my distant childhood was gas 15¢/gal! 25¢ is the lowest I remember.
I agree, this entire page is very, very nice, and I particularly like the small "How far can I go" web app. Two things stick out to me:
- I like it how they explicitly included the "Performance vs. Regular" switch only to demonstrate that it does not have any effect on range.
- I'm a little unhappy with the fact that the speed dial only goes to 65 mph. It's beyond that where it gets really interesting, but they will probably (have to) include a greater range of speeds in the German version of the page.
- Similarly, the temperature scale only goes down to 32°F. That's sufficient to demonstrate that heating is a range hog, but a range down to 10°F or even 0°F would be much more interesting to play with.
- I particularly like how they added information on night driving, open vs. closed windows, and 21" vs. 19" tires.
Well... that would be four things, I guess. It became more while I was still typing. ;-)
Agreed! Even in California, it's common for the flow of traffic to move at 80mph on some roadways. There are even areas in California where the posted speed limit is 70mph, so limiting the scale to 65mph is nonsense.
Heck, there's a highway here in TX between Austin & San Antonio where the posted speed is 85!
