Last week a NY Times writer, John Broder, wrote a piece about the Tesla Model S that made it look really bad. He took it on a long trip, from Washington D.C. to up-state Connecticut, intending to use the Supercharger network along the way to keep the car rolling.
The two east-coast Supercharger locations were built in December, and more are on the way.
However, if you read his article you know that his trip ended with the Model S on a flat bed tow truck because he ran out of electricity. The article reads like the Model S isn't ready for prime time, and will leave you stranded on the side of the road. However, from the perspective of an experienced EV driver there's a long list of mistakes he made.
I've written up two pieces going over those mistakes
Plus I found a very insightful blog post by someone experienced with long distance driving in the Model S, that goes point-by-point over the mistakes Broder made
The question in the context of EV Advocacy is how do we best get across to people that the NY Times article is highly flawed?
