Range has been a major concern with electric vehicles -- just how far they can go before needing recharging. That's why this is great PR. To get across the country in just 45 hours from coast to coast, 3,000 miles, is a feat for gas-driven cars. There is no indication that Tesla sponsored the runs, but it should have. It's proof that range is no longer a concern for the EV. There are enough charging stations across the country, the time it takes to refill the battery is nominal and speed is not a concern. (Teslas will do 90 mph.) The more drivers who repeat and lower the transcontinental time will only enhance the point that EVs are here to stay.
