Tesla may be understating performance of 60-kWh Model S

I don't really disagree with you. Better to have numbers available that the average buyer can achieve than to push the limit and show numbers that only a small percentage can achieve. Other than bragging rights, what's the advantage of publishing a 0-60 time performed by a highly-trained test driver under perfect conditions when your average Joe is going to be .5sec off of that pace? That faster time means nothing to him if he can't achieve it. EPA figures are similar. I point to the Ford hybrids, specifically the C-Max and note that their EPA mileage figures, while good, seem to only be achieved by a small percentage of buyers. What's the good in posting the higher numbers if they're largely meaningless to the general public? Granted, I think we all know the answer to that, but does it make it right?
