Proof doesn’t come much better than this: A European Tesla owner racked up 100,000 kilometers (around 62,000 miles) on his Tesla Roadster, making it the highest-mile EV ever for the California upstart.
The Roadster was the 83rd delivered in Europe, where it ended up in Hansjörg von Gemmingen’s Karlsruhe, Germany garage.
von Gemmingen, a stockbroker, uses the Roadster for virtually all of his driving, which explains the high mileage for a Roadster that is less than two years old. He has gone as far as ensuring that his 82-year-old grandmother has a 240-volt charging station at her house.
