Tesla Model S clocks 320,000 km – maintains 94% batterycapacity

Tesloop, a dedicated Tesla taxi service between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, has been breaking Tesla records.

Since July 2015, their first Tesla Model S has clocked up 320,000 kilometres, and still has 94% battery capacity.

The average Kiwi car travels 14,000 kilometres per year.  So Tesloop clocked up 20 years worth in 12 months.

This is a massive thumbs up for battery technology and for publicrapid charging technologywhich has no noticeable impact on the long term performance of batteries.

If this car was operating in New Zealand the owner would havesaved $45,000in the first year alone.  Fill your boots taxi drivers!

Tesloop biggest costs to maintain the Tesla was a 12-volt battery replacement for US$190, and a new set of tyres every 60,000 kilometres.  Thanks to Tesla’s unlimited 8-year warranty there have been no other costs!

Nice work Tesloop.  If you’re looking for an affordable Electric Vehicle starting from $15,000 then check out NZ’s leadingElectric Vehicle Buyers Guide.

Tesla Model 3 Solar Option

Not all Kiwi’s are blessed with a garage or off street parking.

So it’s a natural progression for Tesla to consider embedding solar generation into their vehicles, especially after the merger between Tesla and Solar City has received regulatory and shareholder approval.

Elon Musk has confirmed that solar roofs for the upcomingModel 3are likely to become an option in a recent tweet.
