UCF researcher takes electric car on 400-mile ride

Orlando Business Journal by Abraham Aboraya, Reporter

University of Central Florida researcher David Metcalf has gone where no one else has gone before: He took a Tesla Model S on a 423.5-mile trek, beating the previous record of 311 miles on one charge.

He was able to do that, in part, because of Florida’s flat terrain and by timing the trip to be at a time when air conditioning wasn’t needed.

Metcalf made the trip in response to a challenge from Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk.
