USA: Tesla Model S Owner Drives Coast To Coast Electrically (Again)

By now, regular readers will be familiar with long-distance electric car trips.

While range may cause anxiety to some, for others it’s merely a temporary limit, with forward planning and steely resolve allowing some electric vehicle drivers to continue long after others have given up.

One recent electric car is more suitable than most, for such trips. Tesla Motors’ [NSDQ:TSLA] electric sedan, the Model S, has an EPA-rated range of 265 miles in 85 kWh form. What better way to test this than by a coast-to-coast trip through the U.S?

Driving from Portland to New York is a long distance for any vehicle, but for the Electric Road Trip S, getting there via Arizona, Louisiana, Virginia and other interim states is certainly taking the long way around.

After setting off on December 26, drivers Peter Soukup, Tina Thomas and Luba Roytburd have driven down the West Coast, making best use of the network of charging stations in Oregon and California.
