    Tesla Roadster Wins 5th Straight Monte Carlo Rally Gas 2.0

    For the fifth time the Tesla Roadster has won the Monte Carlo Alternative Energy Rally, crushing Top Gears claims about its electric batteries, supposed, short range.

    The Monte Carlo Alternative Energy Rally includes some of the same roads as the original Monte Carlo Rally and involves a 1,230 meter pass that puts electric cars and other alternative fuel vehicles to the test. The Tesla Roadster has an average range of 212 miles but the Roadster managed to put out another 68 miles to dominate the race.

    280 miles on one charge! Very careful driving then, obviously, and perhaps this model was outfitted with the newer S batteries for extra performance?
