Tesla Model S makes a cross country rally from LA to NY
Just at the end of the clip, watch the statistics and take a notice at the “van breakdowns: 1”. That is the support van of the Teslas that broke on the road!! 🙂
In the beginning of February, 15 Tesla Motors employees drove two Tesla Model S cars from LA to NY. The cars used the newly built Supercharger network across USA. The route is extremely limited for now, but it is possible and when the network of Supercharger stations grows, there will be bigger flexibility in the trips – this is planned to happen by the end of 2015.
Tesla Motors is making new software updates that puts new abilities in the car such as guidance lines on the back-up camera and an adaptive cruise control. The company will also improve the front seats of the car so they are more comfortable – this will happen within a year. Supercharger stations are also upgraded from 90 and 120 kW to 135 kW.
Elon Musk was in Oslo in the beginning of Fenruary, answering questions during a big presentation with Tesla owners and prospective owners. You can watch the presentation here.
Tesla Model S was also rated among the TOP 10 cars in the world.
