World Record!

On the Eve and New Year’s Day of 2011 a Tesla Roadster ran a course in the Imperial Valley of California and in so doing established a new World Record for Distance traveled by a Production Electric Car on only One Charge.

The final GPS calculation of miles traveled by a production electric car on only one electrical charge is 347.2 miles!

Here are the GPS logs and Charge Session History.

The GPS number is comprised of 52.7 miles traveled in the afternoon of December 31, 2010 and 293.5 miles traveled on January 1, 2011.

The charge history shows a full charge (Rng mode) completed approximately 9 minutes before the GPS report starts, and the large charge (58 KWh) starting approximately 29 minutes after the last GPS report.

A small group of friends from Texas achieved this new record. The group calls itself Team VIN1000 and gets its name from its competition car which is the One Thousandth Car made by Tesla Motors.

Here are some pictures we took along the way…
