Rally door het land: over de finish

At 7:30am today, two Tesla Model S sedans rolled quietly to a stop outside New York's City Hall to set a record speed time for an electric vehicle crossing the United States. The team had just driven the two cars across the U.S. while relying only on Superchargers for energy. Not only did the Cross Country Rally team manage the trip from Los Angeles to New York City in just 76 and a half hours, it also recorded the lowest charge time for an electric vehicle traveling across the country – a feat that is now being assessed for recognition as a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS achievement.

Rally door het land: dag drie

Vrijdagavond om 22.00 uur, in het midden van South Dakota bij een temperatuur van rond de nul graden, ervoer het Coast to Coast Rally team voor de eerste keer autopech.

But it wasn't a Model S. Instead, one of the team's sleeper vans took on a mysterious illness. As it climbed a hill outside the city of Mitchell after a Supercharger stop, the van started to sputter. Even with the foot to the floor, it would only get to 60mph. Soon, it started cutting out completely.

Rally door het land: dag twee

Een krantenkop uit de Denver Post van deze morgen: "Winterse storm geeft het bereik een duwtje in de rug."

Tesla's Cross Country Rally team can attest to the veracity of the report. Last night, the crew members and two Model S sedans were subjected to a good old fashioned Colorado dumping. More than 12 inches of snow. Winds up to 60 mph. White-out conditions. Interstate 70 over Vail Pass was closed, then re-opened, then closed again.
