Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA): First cross-country road trip is completed

Posted Jan 26, 2014

On January 20th, John (62) and his daughter Jill (26) left the JFK Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Supercharger in New York City to head on the first cross-country journey in a Model S. The journey was finished at the Hawthorne, California Supercharger. Over 3,600 miles were driven and the total “fuel” cost for the drive was $0 because they used Superchargers the whole way.

John and Jill also drove through extremely cold temperatures, which is another testament of the Model S. In one of the cities and they drove through, the temperature was -22 Fahrenheit.

“NYC to LAX=3,619.1 miles and consumed 1,366.3kWh or 378Wh/mile”

Jill is going to fly back to New Jersey for work and John is going to visit Tesla Motors in Fremont. They stopped at 28 Superchargers along the way. Here is the list of them as compiled by Inside EVs:
