A common refrain about electric cars is that they’re fine for city driving but can’t do road trips.  This has been disproven many times, and Tesla owners in particular have an easy time on road trips due to Tesla’s excellent Supercharger network.

But today we’ve seen yet another reason not to worry about the capability to take EVs on long trips, as Bjørn Nyland has managed to drive 2,781km (1,728mi) in 24 hours in a Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD.  Nyland set this record on IONITY quick chargers in Germany because currently, that network is significantly faster than Tesla’s Superchargers.

The previous record was 2,644km, set last year in a Model 3 by the Austrian G-Electric team including German Horst Lüning. Lüning previously held the record before that with 2,424km in a Model S.

As the Tesla Model 3 and its recent 250kW software update rolls out across Europe, drivers are now testing the cars at not only Tesla charging stations but also 3rd party CCS combo stations. In one test which was uploaded to YouTube, the charging rate of the Tesla Model 3 is put up against the Audi e-tron, an EV not only with a fast 150kW charging speed but the ability to keep that charging rate over a long part of the session.

These are the two fastest charging production vehicles and now we have a head to head between them at the same station.
