Video: Tesla Model S – Los Angeles To Las Vegas

Los Angeles To Vegas...Success!!!

Los Angeles To Vegas…Success!!!

A newly published video diary shows the Tesla Model S taking another long road trip; and no the car does not get unjustly flat-bedding at any point, and there will be no turning the journalist’s name into a sarcastic verb for incompetence.

The journey does hit a few snags;  screw in the tire, some colder than expected weather, unexpected hilly terrain over a plotted rout, but the fellows at Kelly Blue Book make it all the way to their destination and back in a entertaining trip from LA to Vegas.

    I do not understand why people set the cabin temperature so high in the middle of the winter, when it is close to or below freezing outside. I cannot stand anything warmer than 66-68 deg F during the winter regardless of how much wasted heat the ICE produces.

      Yeah, I don’t understand cranking the heat, but I’m from MI, so maybe I’m used to cold. Also, why didn’t they charge the car while they were fixing the tire?

        Yeah, and they had to drive all those miles to find
        a Tesla maint. center to fix a tire???

        Hmmm…

      My car is set at 73F. It was 38F out when I left this morning. Growing up in Vegas has made my blood thinner, and I cant deal with those cold temps.

    I don’t understand why the car wasn’t charged at the service center while the tire was being worked on. Wouldn’t that have removed most of the “drama” from this event? It was a Tesla service center wasn’t it?
