+ - Tesla Model S has Bizarre, 'Vampire-Like' Thirst For Electricity At Night->

Submitted by cartechboy
cartechboy (2660665) writes "The Tesla Model S, for all its technical and design wizardry, has a dirty little secret: Its a vampire. The car has an odd and substantial appetite for kilowatt-hours even when turned off and parked. This phenomenon has been dubbed the "vampire" draw, and Tesla promised long ago to fix this issue with a software update. Well, a few software updates have come and gone since then, and the Model S is still a vampire sucking down energy when it's shut down. While this is a concern for many Model S owners and would be owners, the larger question becomes: After nine months, and multiple software updates,why can't Tesla fix this known issue? Tesla has recognized the issue and said a fix would come, yet the latest fix is only a tiny improvement--and the problem remains unsolved. Is Tesla stumped? Can the issue be fixed?"
