The record-breaking Tesla Model S, which entered the Guinness Book of Records with a 1 million kilometer run at the end of last year, continues to drive.
Hansjör Gemmingen, the long-time owner of the Tesla Model S P85 +, clearly proves that even with the limited range of electric cars, long routes can be overcome. In November last year, with a range of over 1,000,000 kilometers, he even made it to the Guinness Book of Records. But that’s not the end of his ride.
Gemmingen is constantly active on Twitter, where it is constantly adding the current status of its tachometer. And as the posts on his page show, his car is still moving. It is worth remembering that he has covered 1,000,000 kilometers with the Model S in less than 6 years.
In 2014, he acquired his red Tesla Model S P85 + electric sedan, ie a version with one electric motor with an output of 310 kW and a range of approx. It should be noted, however, that it was not a new car. At that time, Tesla had already driven about 30,000 kilometers.
This week, Gemmingen boasted a 1,199,413-kilometer tachometer image on Twitter, for which even Elon Musk congratulated him. A few hours ago, a picture appeared on Twitter showing a run of 1,200,000 kilometers.
It is worth noting, however, that the car did not get to this impressive raid in its original condition. Before overcoming the one million kilometer mark, it was necessary to replace three electric motors and four batteries. We do not even want to imagine the cost of such a service.
