It is known that some Model Swho left the company’s factory when the model was first launched, were facing problems with the rear electric motor. This was an issue that this particular car had to overcome as well and it did so by changing it as a whole 13 times to date!
As for the batteryshe has replaced three timesmeaning that each system had a lifetime of approx 600.000 km.
THE Gemmingen-Hornberg he explained that in order to keep the car in good condition he tries to treat it in the best way. It runs approx 100 km at a time, before letting it “rest”. It also makes a habit of charging the battery when its level drops below 20%but without filling it to 100%.
Besides, he revealed that now being retired, he has enough free time to travel. The Tesla has already visited several countries such as Moroccothe Swedenthe Austria and Chinawhile as its owner states, this is only the beginning.
