Tesla Model S 100D Featured By Fully Charged
We had been waiting for this one!
Fully Charged has finally covered the longest range series produced electric car ever made – the Tesla Model S 100D, which in the US is rated at 335 miles (539 km) of range by EPA – the most realistic of the rating systems worldwide.
If you like big numbers, then the NEDC rating is even more ‘spectacular’ at 393 miles (632 km) – 25.9% higher than Tesla Model S 85 kWh.
According to Fully Charged, there is no need for higher capacity batteries than 100 kWh (Tesla CEO Elon Musk agrees) as sitting 5-6 hours in a car is deemed unhealthy, and you should probably take a break anyway.
“Robert drives the Tesla Model S 100D from London to the Orkney Islands off the North Coast of Scotland.
A common question I get asked about electric cars. ‘Can I drive to Scotland in it.’
To which the answer is a very simple ‘Yes.’
