Tesla Model S owner sets new high mileage record

Less than one year ago in November 2019 Hansjörg Gemmingen set a new high mileage record with 1,000,000km (621,000 miles) in his 2013 Model S P85+.

If you average that out Gemmingen has driven about 200,000km per since he purchased the Model S in 2014.

While most people have driven a lot less this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Gemmingen has kept on trucking and maintained his torrid pace. On Wednesday he teased that he was approaching 1,200,000km (745,000 miles) on the odometer, and today he announced on Twitter he has reached the new high.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk was even impressed with the achievement, congratulating Gimmengen on Twitter.

The 1,200,000km haven’t been maintenance free, as he has replaced the rear motor four times and is currently on his second battery pack.

If you think this was impressive, then you should also know he has an original Tesla Roadster with over 640,000km.
