Los Angeles to Las Vegas in an Electric Car on a Single Charge? Let's Give It a Try!

Tesla's Model S is Up for the Challenge In a recent episode of Wide Open Throttle , Jessi Lang and Frank Markus decided to do a real-world test of the new Tesla Model S electric car's range.

Check out the video below to see how well the Tesla did and what kind of sacrifices they had to do to succeed (and whether these sacrifices turned out to be worth it or not in the end!).
