Our colleagues from Moscow Tesla Club went to the trip from Moscow to Smolensk in order to test the Tesla Model 3 Long Range performance and range in Russian winter conditions. This road should be a real challenge: 400 kilometers (250 miles) with NO charging stations, -4 degrees Celcius, snowy weather and slush-covered road.
The team decided to hit the route with two vehicles. In addition to a new Model 3, they have taken the 2014 Tesla Model S P85 – a faithful companion, that is being driven in Moscow for a few years so far.
Finally, one of their car’s battery ran completely out of juice, while another one finished with a solid reserve. Place your bets and watch how the challenge ended!
