Tesla Roadster Sets an Eco-Friendly Record

advertisement

Looks like Tesla Motors wasn't kidding about the Roadster's 200 mile range: a pair of drivers in Australia set an EV range record of 313 miles (501 kilometers) with a Tesla Roadster in the 10th Annual Global Green Challenge in Australia.

Tesla Roadster owner Simon Hackett and co-driver Emilis Prelgauskas completed the trip on a single charge. The prior record was set back in April, when another Tesla Roadster completed the entire 241-mile Rallye Monte Carlo d'Energies Alternatives race with 38 miles left on the battery.
