Tesla Roadster Visits China's Great Wall
Beijing was the eighth stop in the “Odyssey of Pioneers”, the first worldwide tour by a zero-emission car. The 37,000 km trip by Tesla Motors and Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer includes public and VIP events in 15 cities on three continents.
Last month, the Roadster “set wheel” on Indian roads for the first time and was hosted in Jaipur by His Royal Highness Sawai Bhawani Singh Bahadur, the last maharaja of Jaipur and Rajasthan’s most important political, cultural and religious figure. The Roadster was well received all round the world, with one of the best examples demonstrating that being the fact that it became the first non-Russian car to receive official clearance to park in Moscow’s Red Square.
"Throughout India, Russia, China and other countries en route, the Roadster charges from conventional outlets using existing infrastructure. The TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster has charged from standard outlets at hotels, a solar panel array in Italy and even at a barn in rural Switzerland, demonstrating the versatility and ease of charging,” stated the press release.
Until now, California-based Tesla has delivered over 1000 roadsters to customers in North America, Europe and Asia.
