Tesla's Model S is Up for the Challenge

In a recent episode of Wide Open Throttle, Jessi Lang and Frank Markus decided to do a real-world test of the new Tesla Model S electric car's range. They borrowed Elon Musk's very own black Model S (the top-of-the-line 85kWh model, of course) and drove it from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, something that most electric cars can't even contemplate today. Check out the video below to see how well the Tesla did and what kind of sacrifices they had to do to succeed (and whether these sacrifices turned out to be worth it or not in the end!).
