Re: Has anyone benchmarked the three driving modes?

Hi, I normally drive on "ECO PRO" because it provides a good blend of smoothing the acceleration while retaining reasonable HVAC. But while investigating Model 3 performance to measure net HP, I found their "Chill" mode had similar acceleration to "ECO PRO" up to ~70 mph. I'm waiting on a GPS mouse ...

License SuperCharger

CCS is too expensive. Give up on it and license Tesla fast DC charging technology.
