A duo from Norway have set an unofficial world record for the longest distance covered in a Tesla Model S on a single charge. The drivers, Bjorn Nyland and Morgan Torvolt, managed to travel 728.7 km on a single charge with the Model S P85D.
To achieve that incredible figure, the electric sedan’s cruise control was set at 40 km/h for the entirety of the journey. A number of smooth and flat roads were also selected as part of the journey in an effort to reduce elevation changes.
The entire journey consisted of 18 hours and 40 minutes of driving and saw a total of 77.5 kWh of energy being used. Incredibly, the 728.7 km distance travelled is significantly more than the 491 km range which the American automaker rates the Tesla Model S P85D at.
