Tesla Model 3 drove without recharging nearly a thousand kilometersMay 28, 2018
American Sean Mitchell set a new record by driving an electric car Tesla Model 3 without recharging 975.58 kilometers. Moving at a speed of 32-48 kilometers per hour, he spent 32 hours driving. Thus, Mitchell improved his own achievement – 830 kilometers on one charge.
To establish a record near the Denver International Airport, Colorado, a ring road with a length of 1.61 kilometers and a height difference of not more than three meters was found.
According to her Mitchell his partner Eric Strait drove until the battery is completely discharged. They tried to reduce the number of stops to a minimum, and the food that friends brought up was caught with a net during the movement.
The author of the record notes that low battery power on-board systems of the Model 3 began to show at a capacity of 66 kilowatt hours instead of 75. In addition, after a 32-hour trip, there were problems with charging, and the car had to be towed to a service center.
In August 2017, the participants of the Italian club owners Tesla drive the Model S 100D for over a thousand kilometers. During the trip, 98.4 kilowatt-hours of electricity were consumed, and the total travel time was 29 hours.
