"Autofil tests the range and handling of Model S from Oslo to Geilo in icy Norwegian conditions and steep terrain. The journey is only 270 kms (168 miles), but with a climb of 800 metres (2,625 feet) and freezing temperatures."

Says Tesla Motors

As Aufotil adds:

"The test car is a US-spec Model S without cold weather spec."

But the actual test drive is far more exciting to watch than either Tesla or Autofil allude to.

There's a jam packed trunk.

There's no focus whatsoever on conserving energy by the driver.

And there's even a bit of duct tape covering the Model S' remaining range indicator.

The test driver simply drives the Model S with no regard for its "electricness."

But it's the duct tape over the range indicator that hooked us.  Is this yet another use for the stick-anywhere, fix-anything tape?  Duct tape as a range anxiety eliminator?
