Tesla Roadster Goes 347.2 Miles On One Charge $TSLA
The owner of an all-electric Tesla Roadster from Texas has set a newrecord for distance traveled on a single battery charge: 347.2 miles.
The record is for a production vehicle — no extra batteries orspecial modifications allowed. The roadster is special in one way; itwas the 1000th car to roll off the Tesla assembly line. (Hence itslicense plate: VIN1K.)
The car, which can reach 120 mph, didn’t set any speed records onthis journey. The two-person driving team maintained a nearly constantspeed of 25 mph. (That may have been the hardest part of thisachievement– resisting the impulse to floor it.)
Tesla Motors puts the official range for the roadster at 244 miles on a single charge.
