I am retired, so I mostly drive the car for general purposes: shopping, eating out, going to musical events or the movies, etc. I take occasional out of town trips, up to 200 miles or so. The Model S is the car I always drive. I drive fairly aggressively, and my watt-hours per mile reflect it. However, there's no reason to pay for a high performance car if you don't use it! Regarding my battery statistics: I am trying to make my battery last as long as possible.. One important strategy in a hot place like Houston is to avoid excessive heat. For summer of 2015 the car was housed in a hot garage, but in the summer of 2016 the garage was air conditioned. It is worth noting that, for reasons I so far haven't determined, my 90% and 100% charge levels now show zero degradation after 20 months and 10,000 miles. The numbers dipped for 7 months, then began climbing, and after receiving the 2.50.114 OTA update on Dec. 24, 2016, the Rated Range numbers bumped back up to the exact numbers they had when I took delivery of the car: 90% = 227 miles Rated Range, 100% = 253 miles Rated Range.
