It's hard to believe that there is a Tesla Model S with 1.2 million miles (almost 2 million kilometers) on the odometer, but it really is.. And here she is.
2014 Tesla Model S P85 with 1.18 million miles to date. During this time, the engine had to be changed 13 times and the traction battery twice.
In 2019, Elon Musk congratulated Hansjörg von Gemmingen-Hornberg, the owner of this particular Model S, which at the time had a million kilometers (621,371 miles) on the odometer.. This seemed like a solid achievement, but remember today the mileage has doubled.
Some early Tesla Model S electric vehicles are known to have problems with the rear motors. This particular Tesla suffered from this. The rear engine has been replaced thirteen times, so if we include the original it came with, that's 14 engines over approximately 1.2 million miles.
Most of the replacement engines were actually refurbished units and the problem is that Tesla didn't know the real problem so didn't know how to properly fix the engines. Some of these replacement engines failed very quickly. Some were covered by warranty and others were not.
As for the car's battery, it performed better than the engine. However, this model is currently running on a third battery. Three batteries with a range of 1.2 million miles means a battery life of about 500,000 kilometers.
Other parts of the electric car, such as the suspension, exterior and interior, are well preserved. Unfortunately, he doesn't go into detail regarding other wear and tear items such as brakes, tires and the like.
