More than 10 million real-world miles without using a single drop of gasoline is a significant achievement – and that’s exactly what Tesla Motors is celebrating today. The Palo Alto, Calif. based electric-car maker announced today that its electric Roadsters in over 30 countries have now covered over 10 million real-world miles,
“Roadsters have collectively saved 500,000 gallons of fuel and over 5.3 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions,” Tesla said. “Over 1500 Roadsters have consistently outperformed the best traditional supercars all over the world, to the delight of their owners.”
“We owe this achievement to Roadster drivers around the world and their pioneering adoption of electric vehicles,” said Tesla Motors cofounder and CEO Elon Musk. “The Roadster has proven to the world that electric cars can be incredibly fun, and practical. Most importantly, these vehicles have provided Tesla with a real-world test fleet that allows us to stay on the cutting edge of electric powertrain engineering and technology.”
The Tesla Roadster was launched in 2008 as an electric sports car that runs from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds with a total driving range of 246 miles.
