Hoe efficient is een Tesla Model S vergeleken met een normale auto? 2-5x zo zuinig bij gebruik van Gas centrales

All vehicle types, regardless of what powertrain they use, need to overcome road-load. It includes wind resistance, mechanical friction (bearings, hubs, driveshaft, etc.), and tire rolling resistance. Road-load affects all vehicles. As a car speeds up, wind resistance increases; there is more air for the car to “push” out of the way. Therefore, road-load is greater at higher speeds and is dependent on the aerodynamics of the vehicle. Tesla engineers are focused on decreasing aerodynamic losses while achieving beautiful styling. Road-load can be minimized by designing brakes, bearings and other rotating components with less friction. It is also important to use tires that have low rolling resistance and make the vehicle as light as possible. Energy saved by decreasing road-load can have a significantly positive impact on range. The Model S will be one of the most aerodynami...
