+ - You Can Drive a Tesla from Vancouver to LA And Only Stop Once For 30 Minutes-> 3

Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes "Tesla drivers were already able to make an all-electric journey along the East Coast from DC to Boston, using only the charging stations installed along the way. A number of journalists have documented taking that trip, and all but one completed it with ease.

Now, the same is true on the West Coast, but the distance is much longer, and the prospective feat more impressive. Along with the charging station in Vancouver, there are two in Washington, on in Oregon, and nine in California. Tesla's Model S sedan gets 205-265 miles per charge, making a West Coast-spanning jaunt down the length of the entire I-5 feasible. It'd be close, but since there are charging stations in Yreka, CA and reportedly in Eugene, Oregon, an emissions-free West Coast cruise is now in the cars."

  • There are 3 places named "Vancouver":
    1) Vancouver, Canada
    2) Vancouver Island
    3) Vancouver, Washington State, USA
    The summary must say Canada.

    Other errors: "... emissions-free West Coast cruise...". The car is not "emissions-free". The electricity that it uses is generated with very serious emissions, from coal, which emits radioactive compounds, mercury, and other poisons.

      Pedantic much? There are multiple places named DC and Boston too. Vancouver, BC is a major international city. Vancouver, WA is a small city most people have no reason to refer to. Vancouver Island... that's just stretching it. NOBODY would refer to Vancouver Island as "Vancouver" -- and it's only a ferry ride away from Vancouver (the city, metropolitan area, etc). Note http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vancouver [wikipedia.org] -- if you're not going to go with the default location and include Vancouver Island, you migh

    • Another error in the summary: It is necessary to charge the Tesla multiple times to go from Canada to L.A., not once, as it says in the submitted summary.
