Announcing the 2014 Assault on Mt. Evans Tesla Road Rally 2014, Spread the word! June 2013 was a historic day for Mt. Evans, Colorado as 29 Model S cars completed the 28.5-mile up-hill trek from Idaho Springs, CO (Elevation ~7,000 ft.) to the summit at 14,265 ft (parking lot at 14,165 ft.). This is the highest paved road in North America. After spending quality tesla time at the summit parking lot, taking in 360-degree views of snow-capped mountains, nature pictures of mountain sheep, goats, rams, and dramatic scenery with Model S cars populating the summit, we retreated to Idaho Springs reconvening at Beau Jos Pizza for more socializing. It was a perfect day with perfect cars and better people. It is time to do it again! We are set for Saturday June 7, 2014. If interested and available, please join us for the 2014 rally. Details are presented in the link below with images from the 2013 rally. Note - The date was selected in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service and Colorado State Park Service as to not conflict with other events, like running and cycling races. Assault on Mt.

When we got to the top of Mt Evans we had exactly 100 miles of rated range and our energy graph showed 817 Wh/m on the 5-mile scale. By the time we got to the bottom again we had gained 18 miles of range and our energy graph was showing -342 Wh/m on the 5 mile scale, -268 Wh/m on the 15 mile scale.” - - - Updated - - - FYI - as of 4/29/14 I have 15 RSVPs.
