In just 3 years, Tesla’s Model S has been driven 1bn miles

Tesla Model S drivers have driven their cars a billion all-electric miles, with the milestone coming just three years after the sedan was launched. The news was shared today, with Tesla comparing the cumulative distance traveled with 4,186 trips to the moon, or a continuous road trip lasting a ridiculous 2,000 years.

That's about double the $33,500 that Kelley Blue Book says is the average price of a new car in the U.S. But that doesn't mean Tesla and founder Elon Musk aren't planning to go head-to-head price-wise with Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys, in fact the company stated earlier this week that they are targeting a March 2016 unveiling for their next vehicle, the Model 3.

Tesla, whose business hedges heavily on EVs, knows only too well what it now calls "range anxiety". So when it promises to calm all those nerves come March 19th, people in the automotive industry, especially its rivals in the electric vehicle market, will definitely await that day with piqued curiosities, if not a new kind of anxiety themselves: Tesla anxiety.
