Faster Tesla Supercharging - How does it actually perform?

Faster Tesla Supercharging - How does it actually perform?

(Edits: Correct charging times for 10-50 kWh for new charge curves, which previously were too optimistic. Added charging time for BTX6 100 kWh battery.) About a month ago, Tesla started rolling out updates to their fleet to allow for faster charging at the V2 Superchargers. These are the classic Superchargers which are everywhere, and they are still physically 145 kW maximum, serving a pair of stalls.  The new V3 Superchargers will be able to serve 250 kW, per stall, but they are not yet av
Model 3 Consumption and Charging

Model 3 Consumption and Charging

Finally! Enough Model 3 owners have gotten through the hassle of keeping ABRP running in a mobile browser while driving and charging to give ABRP some initial consumption and driving statistics. Have you noticed how much better ABRP has become in the mobile browser with the latest UI updates, BTW? We have data points from 57 Model 3s, but most vehicles have only provided a couple of seconds of data. Most of the data actually comes from a Swedish American cross-east-cost driver who left ABRP

How to Add Your Car to ABRP

Introduction One of the questions we get fairly regularly at ABRP is if and when we will support other Electric Vehicles in the planner.  To create a model the planner can use we need two aspects defined: Driving Consumption and Charging. Once we have a model for a car, we have three markers we’ll put in the planner: Alpha – An initial model based on measurements or data by external parties, not thoroughly verified. Beta – A more mature model validated by matching to own

Tesla Model S Consumption vs Speed

Thanks to generous donations of data from ABRP users driving around logged in with MyTesla, there is plenty of statistics to learn from. As of this post, there are about 2.6 Million data points logged from 487 Tesla Model S vehicles while driving 350 000 km (217 000 miles) in the ABRP database. Taking most of these data points into account, plotting them in a single chart and fitting a model to them leads to the following result: Blue points are data points, corrected for el

A Better Routeplanner 3.2

A Better Routeplanner 3.2

Beautiful, fast new maps! Ioniq! Today we proudly release another update of ABRP. As usual, we continuously update a lot of things under the hood without marking it as new releases, but now we have reached a point where we think it is worth giving it a number: 3.2. News in this release: New maps. With this release we move to MapBox for beautiful, fast maps. It runs noticably smoother in the Tesla browser. The hill shading is particularly interesting for us EV owners. (Rea

Tesla Battery Charging Data from 801 Cars

Different batteries have different characteristics when it comes to charging; this goes for the various Tesla battery models too. Through the ABRP data collection by generous users, we have quite a lot of real-world data to base our models for use in the route planning, and in this post we give you some insight into the data. The data here is based on 4600 Supercharging sessions from 801 Tesla Vehicles! First of all, the battery model of a Tesla is not completely clear from the model name.

Tesla Supercharging - Summer 2019 Update

Tesla Supercharging - Summer 2019 Update

(Edit 2019-08-16: Added Model 3 SR+) (Edit 2019-09-06: Added BT70) Since we last wrote about Tesla supercharging, Tesla vehicles have received quite a few software updates (as usual). Some seem to have modified the charge curves of some car models, and especially the classic Model S 85 owners have been noticing some relatively big decreases in charging power. As usual, we at ABRP have actual data thanks to our generous users who contribute it by logging in with their MyTesla accou

Tesla Model 3 Performance vs RWD consumption - Real Driving Data from 233 Cars

Tesla Model 3 Performance vs RWD consumption - Real Driving Data from 233 Cars

As you may already know, ABetterRouteplanner.com collects driving data from contributing users. This data is used to improve the ABRP car models (i.e. the mathematical representation of each type of car) and also, to give back to the ABRP community providing the data, to be published here in the blog! At this point, we have received a lot of Model 3 Long Range driving data, and even enough data from Model 3 Performance to draw some first conclusions on how they differ. We have 220 different

ABRP 3.7 Release Notes

ABRP 3.7 Release Notes

At ABRP, we work a little bit like a certain EV manufacturer - we release new features and upgrade any time, without much announcement. (Sometimes we break things, too.) However, sometimes it is good to make an announcement of all the things which have happened so that nobody misses the new goodies. Therefore; ABRP 3.7! Next Charger: Press this nifty little button, and you will be given up to five alternatives for your next charger, including how much time each choice will add to your tr

Hyundai Ioniq EV

Hyundai Ioniq EV

Thanks to the 4 Ioniq EV drivers contributing driving data to ABRP, we’ve finally got enough data points to define our first real world consumption curve for the Ioniq EV!  We can still use driving data to improve the model even further, so if you’d like to contribute your data, have a look at the instructions.  Also, if you’ve got an electric car you’d like us to support have a look at our post detailing How to Add Your Car to ABRP. Much of the data comes from day-to-day driving, with a fe

A Better Routeplanner 3.3

A Better Routeplanner 3.3

Driving mode for Everyone! A Better Routeplanner has always been about two things to make life as an EV owner as smooth as possible: Planning at home, and following up while driving. In a Tesla, specifically with telemetry via MyTesla, the ABRP driving mode has been working smoothly, but in a mobile phone or iPad, driving mode has been absent. Now ABRP 3.3 changes that! Release highlights Driving mode, with or without telemetry. As soon as you move fast enough, ABRP will

Range vs Speed vs Temperature from 805 Teslas

In the previous posts about Tesla Model S power consumption vs speed (and the same thing for Model X) we dove through the surface of the large pool of driving data generously donated by ABRP users. There is more than 2.4 million driving data points now, and in this post we dive a little deeper. EVs and how they are affected by outside temperatures is usually a hot topic, but perhaps most during the winter. Well, now ABRP has collected data all through the (northern hemisphere) winter and th

Sharing Data with ABRP

We value actual driving and charging data very highly at ABRP. We use it both to research and publish information about the efficiency and charging characteristics of Electric Vehicles, and to power our internal models of the cars for trip planning. There are several posts on this blog about the charging and consumption characteristics of Tesla Model S, X, and 3. And all of this is made possible thanks to our generous users who donate their data! Tesla vehicles are, of course, all online al

Tesla Model X Consumption vs Speed

Similar to the post about Model S Consumption vs Speed, there is a lot of data from Model X owners driving around with ABRP active in their browsers and logged in with MyTesla. This is data from 1.2 million driving points from 279 Model X vehicles covering 160 000 km (100 000 miles), and almost all data points are included and corrected for elevation changes: The blue points are individual power consumption samples. The yellow points are the median power consumption for each spee

ABRP Update: Automatic MyTesla Login Refresh

Finally I have managed to get automatic refreshing of tokens to MyTesla to work in ABRP. In plain English this means that once you are logged in to MyTesla in ABRP, you should never have to log in again – it should not expire. Note that ABRP still does not store your password or MyTesla email anywhere. Only a temporary key from Tesla, called a token, is stored locally in your browser. Never on our servers. The refresh is done using Teslas refresh token, which is issued when logging in th

ABRP 3.4 - Lots of New Car Models Today we proudly release ABRP 3.4 with a bunch of improvements and new goodies! Most ABRP fans would know by now that most of these features have already been released quietly as soon as they were implemented, which is how we usually work. This new version is just to announce it properly so that you do not miss it! News: A lot of new car models, mostly in alpha stage, which means that we know approximately how they work but we need your feedbac
