Elon Musk Is Taking The Model S On A Road Trip

Elon Musk Is Taking The Model S On A Road Trip

Elon Musk‘s Tesla road trip is more than just a shimmering mirage on a dead straight, Midwestern road, it seems.

Tesla has attempted to prove that its Model S can be used for long road trips. For an electronic car, the Model S has one of the longest battery ranges, up to 265 miles; Musk wants to set an example and he’s not alone. The @TeslaRoadTrip twitter feed has a mission: “proving long trips in a Tesla Model S are possible!”

The electric-car maker recently received a rap on the knuckles from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for claiming the Model S is the safest car on the road.
