Video: Tesla road trip 1400 km on Russian roads. Moscow Tesla Club Model S range test


May 28, 2015
From year to year we spot a steadily growing interest for Tesla cars in Russia. However, there still is indefinite number of rumors about the lack of necessary charging infrastructure beyond capital cities - like Moscow or Saint-Petersburg. Though it might have some sense in terms of lengthy distances between cities, in Moscow Tesla Club we are pretty sure that our country is already a perfect place for driving Tesla in everyday mode.

To prove that we have planned an ultimate journey. What we've been facing were a standard Model S P85, a 870 miles (1400 km) distance from Moscow to Minsk and back, about 23 degrees F outside (-5 C) with a chilly wind, and no public chargers on the route at all - only a hope that the hotel's staff in Smolensk would be kind enough to let us use the 380V power outlet on their parking lot. Watch the video to find out the results of our trial.
