Here in the UK, it’s pretty hard to make an all-American -style road trip. For a start, there just isn’t enough of the UK to keep anyone in a car for more than a few hours at a time.
But this weekend, we’re borrowing a Tesla Model S and heading out on what must be one of the most epic road-tests we’ve ever made, criss-crossing the UK in order to make a number of important engagements and of course, to test out the Tesla Model S too. All on one of the UK’s busiest bank-holiday long weekends.
Naturally, we’ll be stopping by some of the recently-launched Tesla Superchargers in order to see just what it’s like Supercharging a Tesla Model S for the first time. We’ll be loading up our press car with a full compliment of family and luggage in order to see how the car drives when it’s fully laden. And we’ll be seeing how easy it is to charge on the road when the worst-case scenario means we’ll be charging at just seven miles per hour.
In total, we’re going to be covering just over 1,000 miles in three days, equating to a lot of time behind the wheel and hopefully several successful charging stops. And in order to fully test our loaner car, we’ll be putting all of the features of our test Model S through its paces — including its Internet radio.
Which got us thinking. What songs should we ask our car to play — and what kind of play list does one listen to when road-tripping in a Tesla Model S? And can it keep a car-full of adults and kids happy for more than 1,000 miles of travel without listening to the same song more than once?
You’ve got twenty-four hours to come up with some must-listen to hits, and we’ll be sure to search for them all in our time with the Model S. We’ll also be tweeting from the road at regular intervals from our Twitter account, so be sure to follow us on Twitter or keep track of the #TETeslaTrip over the weekend.
Leave your song suggestions in the Comments below — along with anything you’d like testing from a family perspective — and we’ll try to do our best try everything you suggest before we hand the car back next week.
