Driving Tesla Model S P85 on German autobahn [VIDEO]

Norwegian Tesla owner Bjørn Nyland has uploaded a video demonstrating his Model S at Autobahn speeds.

A Tesla Model S P85 driven at it's maximum speed of 210 km/h (130 mph) has an estimated range of 154 kms (96 Miles). This fact is the reason behind recent strategic moves by Tesla to partner with BMW to build-out a large / dense supercharger network in Germany.

Having recently returned from Munich I can vouch for the fact that driving at 130 km/h (80 mph) in the fast lane is considered slow, they really do drive at 200 km/h routinely on unlimited sections.

Yet the road toll is actually lower in Germany than in many other countries including, by any measure, Australia where you would simply be arrested and have your car impounded if caught driving at such speeds.
