The Tesla Model S P85D has a spec range of 295 miles.
Two Danish guys set a new world record for the longest distance drive on a single charge in a Tesla Model S P85D. Tesla states in the specifications of the P85D a range of 295 miles. Bjorn Nyland and his friend managed to drive 452.8 miles (728.7km).
The world record was not set on a track, but on public roads in Denmark. At one point they even drove over a grovel road as the missed a turn. They did though pick even roads where they could drive slow. The Tesla was marked with slow signs at the back to notify other drivers that for a change this Tesla can be over taken.
The drive took over 18 hours and the average speed was 24.2 mph.
Hypermiling is a hobby for many Tesla drivers. Denmark owns the record now. How can that even be possible? America has the endless highways ideal for setting a world record in range on single charge.
Elon Musk has acknowledged the world record and retweeted the video of the record setting drive.
