While taking his Tesla Roadster for a leisurely drive from Darwin to Adelaide as part of the Global Green Challenge, Internode founder Simon Hackett just happened to break the world record for the longest distance travelled by an electric vehicle on a single charge. Way to go Simon!
The world record happened on the fourth day of his 3000km journey, where Simon and his co-driver pushed the Roadster to take them 501km on a single charge, smashing the previous record by 110km.
That's a pretty fantastic effort. If only we could all drive Roadsters, the world would be a much better place.
