Tesla Model 3 has travelled 2,781 km (1,728 miles) in 24 hours, breaking the 24 hour EV distance record. The Tesla Model 3 is a luxury all-electric four-door sedan (compact executive car manufactured and sold by Tesla, Inc.
On 6th July 2019 a Tesla Model 3 has travelled 2,781 km (1,728 miles) in 24 hours, breaking the 24 hour EV distance record.
The new record was set by Bjørn Nyland and his co-pilots, on an autobahn in northern Germany.

Previous record (2,644 km,set by a Tesla Model 3).
New Record is 2,781 km (1,728 miles) Travelled In 24 Hours.
The new record, livestreamed on Youtube, took place on a circular route along the A20 autobahn in the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern region of northern Germany.
High power Ionity CCS charger (at Demminer Land), capable of refilling the Tesla Model 3 relatively quickly , were on the recharging stops.
The average speed travelled over the entire 24 hour period was almost 116 km/h (72 mph), including recharging stops. The driving stages were conducted at high speeds of averaging around 100 mph (160 km/h) for just under an hour on each circuit.
The record was set despite frequent periods of rain, and headwinds.
At more normal highway speeds of around 120 km/h (75 mph), the Tesla Model 3 Long Range can travel an initial distance of 264 miles (425 km) driving from full down to 10%, and then recover over 2.5 hours of driving (188 miles, 303 km) from each 20 minutes of charging, on high power DC chargers. At the record setting attempt’s higher speeds, often over 100 mph (161 km/h), the overall range (as with all vehicles) is lower, but due to the Tesla Model 3’s high-speed charging ability, the overall distance travelled in a given period of time is optimized.
You can review the new record on Bjørn’s Youtube livestream channel.
HOW TESLA MODEL 3 WAS ABLE TO BREAK THE RECORD ?
Model 3 comes with the option of dual motor all-wheel drive, 20” Performance Wheels and Brakes and lowered suspension for total control, in all weather conditions. And a carbon fiber spoiler improves stability at high speeds, all allowing Model 3 to accelerate from 0-60 mph in as little as 3.2 seconds.
Tesla All-Wheel Drive has two independent motors. Unlike traditional all-wheel drive systems, these two motors digitally control torque to the front and rear wheels—for far better handling and traction control. Car can drive on either motor, so never need to worry about getting stuck on the road. If one motor stops working , it can safely continue to your destination with the second.
Model 3 is fully electric, so never need to visit a gas station again. And when you’re on the road, it’s easy to plug in along the way—at any public station or with the Tesla charging network. Tesla currently have over 13,000 Superchargers worldwide, with six new locations opening every week.
Autopilot advanced safety and convenience features are designed to assist with the most burdensome parts of driving.
