Has anyone benchmarked the three driving modes?

Tue Apr 16, 2019 9:16 pm

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 before running a series of benchmarks. But I'm wondering if anyone has already done a series of 0-60 mph (0-100 kph) tests using the three driving modes?

I wonder if the oriental FONT can be disabled? Replace it will blanks.
