Simulate a Tesla trip with the official online tool

We specify his model and his journey there and we get the same thing (I suppose) that what had hitherto asked us to go and sit in the car . Disadvantage: only the models currently on sale are offered, so it will be relatively wrong for an 85, even more for a 75 .

Perhaps it has already been said here, in case: a journey planner with superchargers is now available on the Tesla website.

I who discover it all, it’s great !
I have the impression that he calculates to optimize the charging time, example to go see the parents-in-law next to Rodez, he offers me with my future 3 LR a single stop of 10 min in Nimes, so I suppose Just keep enough load to reach your destination.

This is the principle of GPS in the car, therefore reproduced here on the Tesla site. Optimization of the journey and charging times, leaving a little room for maneuver (eg, it should not offer a charge time where we arrive with 3% autonomy)

I quickly tested the journey with a S 100 and great autonomy (650kms) .
I was amazed to see a difference not exceptional with my “old” 85D on a journey of 850kms that I know well.
The number of judgment to the juices (2) is identical, only the recharging time is reduced .
In total, the total journey time is only different by 10% .
I often have the impression that the question of autonomy is exaggerated when you have a well -distributed network of juices .

To climb to Limoges via the Caylar (650km),
With my TMS 85: 2 stops (Caylar and Brive)
With my TMS 100 LR: 1 stop (the Caylar)
With a TM3 SR+: 3 stops (Nîmes, Le Caylar and Brive), a LR TM3 should avoid stopping nimes, but it’s not worth 10.000 € more

In time, it should not even add 1/2 hours more, so in everyday life a SR+ seems to me more than enough

PS: on forums/YouTube many people sell their SR+ 2019/2020 abroad (where a new SR+ costs in the 50.000 €) to buy an SR+ 2021 in France for almost the sale price of their SR+ .
A SR+ will become a placement as interesting as Tesla actions

I will see the difference with the dog trailer (450 kg, approximately 1m50 high) compared to the estimated stops and consos. With the rav on journeys and equivalent speed we made about 10% more consumption, but it was a beef made to tow and which in any case pumped its tank in 420 km in “eco-driving” .
I rather expect 25% increase, but with a less heavy trailer ?
The choice of the LR seemed compulsory given to me given our use in terms of autonomy, not to mention the 4 steps very useful for snow by us. However, I hope not to regret the price difference !
That said, my man rightly points out to me that this year the trailer came out twice from the garage, for journeys of less than 200 km. In 2019 2 journeys, only one of 450km. I think I ask myself too many questions !

Trailer at the end of February, car mid March. I can’t wait to test it all !

Small (big) missing anyway: you cannot enter its level of charge at the start as a parameter. Too bad, because it can fundamentally change where we will stop (as well as the number of stops, in this case by adding one or not).

The hypothesis taken by Tesla is that we necessarily leave and in this case, it seems to me, very busy, probably between 90% and 100% given the few journeys that I made.

Simulate a Tesla trip with the official online tool

If, like many of those interested in Tesla, you wonder what it changes to roll with an Elon Musk car, you can now have the answer.

The Tesla group launched, early January 2018, an online version of its travel planning tool. The tool allows anyone driving in Tesla to organize the route taking into account the particularity of this car: its electric propulsion. Indeed, while those who roll on petrol or diesel can refuel everywhere in France, the owners of Tesla must provide for their stops.

An online version of the journey preparation tool

The tool was previously reserved for owners of a Tesla car: it is simply the GPS tool which is integrated into the car on the car of the car. With This online version Tesla can thus show what it changes to roll with one of its models: the tool allows you to simulate the journey by choosing the type of car, but also the type of battery.

Because the problem of electric cars so far is obviously autonomy: while a car driver with petrol engine can hope to make a thousand kilometers with a full, an owner of Tesla can only hope about 500 kilometers autonomy with a full load. Planning the journey and stops is therefore fundamental for not risking ending.

A route that shows the charging stations

The tool put online by Tesla is not a complete GPS tool: it does not give the journey in detail. Above all, it allows you to visualize the charging stations with superchargers, their location, the number of chargers available and the recharge time that must be expected.

Thus, for a Paris-Nice journey, Tesla informs us that we need three stops: one in Beaune and one in Vienna (hunting in Rhône) of 30 minutes, as well as a last to Orange of 50 minutes.

In total, Tesla informs us that the journey will take approximately 11 hours, including refills. The site Viamichelin, For the same journey, informs us that the journey will take approximately 9 hours, but the time to stop filling up is not counted. The big difference is as follows: in Tesla Model S 100D (that used to simulate the journey on the Tesla site), we save 74 euros in petrol.

How to plan long journeys in Tesla: our guide to master everything

Planning a long journey on a Tesla can be a very easy thing, or very complicated depending on the case. Add steps that are not superchargers taken into account automatically is sometimes tedious, but we will give you all the tips to do this in the best way.

Tesla Model 3

The planning of large journeys by electric car is a vast subject that we have already partially dealt with in the past. Today, we focus on what it is possible to optimize this on a Tesla, whether it is a Model 3 or a Model Y for example.

If the Tesla application allows many things, the journey planning remains largely perfectible. However, there is a tip to share a destination that deserves known. We will see what alternative solutions are offered to optimize the journeys to be planned and will examine what we would like to see in the future.

Send a destination from her smartphone on her Tesla is possible

When you consult the details of a place from your smartphone, Tesla has found a clever and practical solution to display it in your navigation system once you sit in your car. Whether you use Apple Maps, Google Maps or another navigation application, just share the place to the Tesla application, as illustrated by the catches below, taken from an Android smartphone.

In this way, setting up behind the wheel, you will not have to search for the address to get there. You will only have to start and let yourself be guided. However, this practical solution has many limits as we will see.

First of all, there is no possible personalization: no choice of alternative road, intermediate stage or even remaining autonomy desired on arrival. Then, and it is undoubtedly the most problematic: the shared place is not an exact position. It corresponds to its name in the navigation application from which it was sent, which sometimes leads to unpleasant surprises.

With its constant evolution, the software on board the Tesla is not frozen. We can of course hope that all this is improving over time. In the meantime, what solutions are available to us to optimize journeys on a tesla ? Let’s start with the use of steps, made possible since the end of 2021.

What to do to add steps to your Tesla ?

Navigation services like Google Maps have been offering the most practical feature for years when you plan a route: adding steps. This allows you to easily choose the appropriate road for a trip, or even check that your step does not make you waste too much time on the overall journey.

On a vehicle with Android Auto or Apple Carplay, all of this would be a non-subject, because Google Maps would be available. But in a Tesla, you can forget this possibility. It is not possible either to share a route as we could share a destination from your smartphone. Fortunately, it is now possible to add your own steps to the integrated navigation system.

To do this, you just have to enter a destination, then select “Add Step”, or “Modify route”. Then you can enter as many destinations as you want, and reorganize them. The battery estimates remaining at each stage will be indicated, in addition to the forecast arrival time.

This feature appeared only a few months ago. It allows you to adapt its journeys quite simply, you still have to be able to take the time to do it on the vehicle before leaving for a long trip. This is particularly useful if you wish to recharge elsewhere than on the network of superchargers (in some cases, this is much cheaper, as we detail here).

All these manipulations are impossible to configure remotely. Thus, organizing your journey is sometimes a fairly painful operation. Indeed, in addition to looking for the different charges, add the steps and provide the routes – once it is done on your computer or your smartphone – you will have to redo everything when driving. We therefore present a tip to make your job easier: events in your calendar.

Events in the rescue calendar

If you have already used a journey planner like the excellent A Better Route Planner, you will have noticed that once on board the car, starting everything again to add its steps can be very painful. Fortunately, thanks to the “Agenda” application available aboard a Tesla, you can be automatically guided to your next event without having anything to do.

Indeed, as soon as the “automatic navigation” option visible above is checked, navigation will automatically consider that your next calendar event is the destination to which you want to go. In this way, as soon as you take the steering wheel, you will not have to manually add a place, all this will already be done.

How to use the agenda to plan steps journeys on its Tesla ?

Take an example of a long planned journey via a better Route Planner, as below.

Replying this route manually would not only time time, but above all tedious. Forecast arrival hours and recharging places being clearly identified, just add them to your calendar application to take advantage of automatic navigation to each step, without any other form of trial.

Once each place is added, you will see this in the agenda application of your Tesla.

If the driver sets up and takes the road, navigation will start towards the first event, in our example an ionity station. But if you want to take advantage of the full route, you just have to touch each event visible in the agenda, and click on “Add” to add this step to the journey. You will get the full trip, with all the steps, as you can see below.

A largely perfectible set

You will understand at the end of this file, the planning of journeys in a Tesla remains today largely perfectible. Not only is it not possible to share an itinerary with steps from a navigation application, but it is also impossible to do it from the Tesla application.

In China, some captures of the Tesla application show that this is partially feasible. But outside China, the manufacturer does not use the same service for cartography, and unfortunately does not offer this feature for the moment.

In the absence of Apple Carplay, Android Auto or even Android Automotive, the only options available to you after a route planning are as follows: either to redo everything by the vehicle, either to add events to your calendar to simplify your task.

Let us hope, however, that with future updates, all this is changing in the right direction. It still lacks the management of the desired battery percentage on arrival, or taking third -party load networks into account like ionity or fastned in navigation. We bet that all this happens soon, to facilitate long trips aboard a Tesla.
