Eccentric Tesla CEO will bring family along for the journey, only charging for 9 hours total for the trip.

These two tweets were Elon Musk’s announcement he’d drive across the continental US in a Tesla Model S to dispel range anxiety. The eccentric and vocal Tesla CEO will drive with his family from LA to NY, a distance of 5150 km, and only charge the car for a total of 9 hours.

Using the Tesla Supercharger network, a Model S can charge to 80% capacity in 40 minutes, giving the 85kWh battery pack enabled model a range of 384 km.
