ABRP and towing a trailer?

Recommended Posts

I have a Tesla Model X and just got an Airstream Nest trailer. Is there a way to create a separate profile of car+trailer so that ABRP can learn what the weight and aerodynamic drag at different speeds does to range, so that I can plan routes with sufficient charging options? Premium feature, perhaps?

You read our minds! This is coming soon.

I would also like this option, since I drive around with a trailer tent with a Model 3.

Also the option to input the consumption at 80km/h - since driving with a trailer at 110km/h is kind of frowned upon... 😉

I would also like to be able to see more details on each leg - specifically elevation change/consumption as a graph. Testplanning on the Wildernessroad in Sweden, one of the legs gets me 135km of range for 60% consumption - hard to judge if I should trust it...

I just set up a new “configuration” under my Tesla Model X... “with Nest trailer” and I’m about to head out for a road trip. The prior data is from no-trailer... other than selecting the “with Nest” configuration, do I need to do anything to start collecting new performance data (and ignoring old) for trip planning on-the-fly?
