Tesla Roadster Clocks Over 100,000 Km in Less Than Two Years

Tesla Motors proudly announced today the owner of the the 83rd Tesla Roadster delivered in Europe, German Hansjorg von Gemmingen, has managed to achieve the greatest distance covered by any of its customers to date. In fact, he has driven in excess of 100,000 km (more than 62,000 miles) in less than two years, with the car he says he charges every night with a standard household outlet.

"Driving the Roadster is still thrilling, and I enjoy every single ride,"
von Gemmingen says. "I'm constantly impressed by the durability and performance of Tesla's technology."

"The Roadster handles long road trips with ease,"
he continued. "As long as you have somewhere to plug in for a bit along the way, it's simple to drive the car no matter where you're headed."

The story behind this feat begins in 2009, when von Gemmingen first spotted the Roadster in German Manager Magazine. He says he was impressed with the 340-km range and instant acceleration in a zero-emissions package, so he booked one.

When the vehicle made his first official public debut later that year, in Geneva, von Gemmingen got behind the wheel the Roadster for the first time at the event, which confirmed he has made a good choice.

“In less than two years, Von Gemmingen has already driven farther than any other Tesla customer. Even when the weather turned cold, he was thrilled to take advantage of the car's adaptive temperature and traction controls - zooming through the winter when most sports cars are stowed away,”
Tesla explains. “Collectively driving more than 17 million real-world electric kilometers, Tesla's global fleet of over 1,600 Roadsters proves that drivers don't have to compromise on performance, style or range to go electric.”
