Tesla Model S Cross Country Road Trip

Posted on Feb 7 2014 - 7:26am by Russ

On January 30, 2014, two red Tesla Model S cars embarked on a cross country journey. The plan was to drive across the United States using only the free cross-continental Tesla Supercharger network.   By doing this, the team would set a world record for charge time of an electric vehicle driving the across the US.

The cars travelled 3,427 miles in 76 hours and 5 minutes.  Charging time took 15 hours and 57 seconds.  If the cars were typical gasoline cars they each would have used about 136 gallons.
