    I'm no fan of Musk, the way he handled this problem is pretty unprofessional, and Broder's article clearly talks about some of the absurdities in owning an electric car (recharge time, lost charge through the night)... but the hard data seems pretty damning, doesn't it? Perhaps Broder had a memory lapse and forgot that he actually turned down the HVAC at 225 miles, and maybe the displayed speedo was overly optimistic. Sure, I can buy that.

    But how do you explain the 0.6 miles with speeds fluctuating between 1-15 mph upon decelerating into the Milford rest stop? Was he looking for the charge station or what?

    This smacks of the rigged blowout story from years ago. Was there insufficient drama for Mr Broder so he made some up? If the Tesla spped and load data is found to be accurate, he has been caught in a lie.

    NYT reporter is so busted. Wonder what all their stories would be like if there were a built-in accuracy meter.
