Agree, but it needs to be done with a "real family" like the Griswold's and filmed.
only if the rules prohibit exceeding the posted speed limit.It would be great publicity.... What do you think?
I think its a great idea to raise awareness that you can take an EV on a road trip. Too high of a percentage of people don't even know what happens when the battery runs out in a Volt and that you can take it on a road trip, never mind what they think of EV's for a road trip.only if the rules prohibit exceeding the posted speed limit.
Cannonball run tomfoolery will finally come to an end only when some innocent is killed in a fireball during an attempt. Fortunatly, the last guys to do this created a close to unbeatable mark, unfortunatly, there are lots of people with way too much free time on thier hands who would love to prove that they could beat this....
clearly the plug in combo vehicles, like the Volt and cmax-energi and pip, could drive this non stop after their 10 or 20 or 38 miles on battery, while the battery vehicles would have to charge up regularly. The Tesla can charge up at about 90 mph or more in good conditions, so at the speed limit, a tesla could continuously drive for 4 hours, then charge for 2 and cover about 250 miles every 6 hours this way. 60 hours cross country or so at the speed limit. a bunch faster it someone wants to put the rest of the driving public at risk. Anyone in a 2 door Aspire could probably complete the run legally in 60 hours. faster with extra fuel tanks fitted....
How is the volt going to beat it strictly running on electric? What, you're gonna charge the car every 35 miles at random plugs for 10 hours at a time? lolWhy? Right now a Volt or just about any conventional car will beat the Tesla unless you make up rules to "level the field"
