Something that interests us all here at BSU is the future of transportation and electric car technology. We recently saw a story about a Tesla Model 3 which drove 606 miles on a single charge setting a new Guinness world record. Seeing as Elon Musk is a kind of hero of ours here at BSU, we were all very excited to see Tesla break another record!
The story from www.theverge.com reads that two Colorado residents have set a new “hypermiling” record by driving their Tesla Model 3 606.2 miles (975 km) on a single charge. It beat a previous record of 560 miles from a Tesla Model S P100D, but it fell slightly short of a 670-mile run in a Model S by an Italian team last August.
It’s exciting to read that the battery technology is getting better for electric cars, seeing as the UK Government climate advisers are demanding the majority of new cars and vans should be electric by 2030. See article on www.independent.co.uk.
Final #Model3 hypermile numbers from @teslainventory and I: 606.2 miles (975 km), 66 kWh, and 110 wh/mi, and 32 hours of driving. At its peak it was 108F in the cabin with no a/c running. Thank you @Tesla and @elonmusk for making such an incredible piece of machinery! pic.twitter.com/Z1LJk4Ligk
