Tesla Model S sets new record, gets driven for 400 miles image

A Tesla Model S has managed to set a new record in its range after being driven for more than 400 miles (644 km) on a single charge.

David Metcalf, along with his 12-year old boy, have managed to set a new record in their Tesla Model S, after the luxurious electric car has been driven for 423,5 miles (681,5 km), before calling the towing company. The two of them got in touch with the Guinness World Record organization and a first step into recognizing the record has already been made. The flagship sedan has been officially rated by the EPA at just 265 miles (426,4 km) and the model in question hasn’t been modified.

As a quick reminder, the Tesla Model S has been launched in the United States this summer and the entire production of the vehicle for 2012 has been sold out ever since earlier this year. Tesla says that the Model S can be bought from 59,900 USD for the 60 kWh version, while for the 85 kWh 10,000 USD will be added to the base price. The Tesla vehicle is getting ready to receive a price increase these days but no official details have been announced on this subject for the moment. The Model S is coming with Nappa leather with Alcantara acents in the cabin, carbon fiber accents for the exterior, an active air suspension and high-performance drive inverter, amongst others.
