PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Tesla Motors announced today that electric Roadsters in more than 30 countries have now covered over 10 million real-world miles, the greatest collective distance covered by any electric vehicle maker to date.

Roadsters have collectively saved 500,000 gallons of fuel and over 5.3 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. Over 1,500 Roadsters have consistently outperformed the best traditional supercars worldwide, to the delight of their owners.

“We owe this achievement to Roadster drivers around the world and their pioneering adoption of electric vehicles,” said Tesla Motors cofounder and CEO Elon Musk. “The Roadster has proven to the world that electric cars can be incredibly fun and practical. Most importantly, these vehicles have provided Tesla with a real-world test fleet that allows us to stay on the cutting edge of electric powertrain engineering and technology.”
