Happy Birthday to Whitecar!

Whitecar celebrated its first Birthday!
On the 5th July 2016, a fleet of shiny, white, fresh faced and fully charged Tesla Model S cars were collected from the West Drayton Tesla Service Centre.

A giddy (really giddy) Mark Strachan brought them back to Whitecar HQ and the adventure began, with our first customer that same day!

So to celebrate our first fleet of very busy cars turning one year old, we decided to hold a little competition.
At sunrise on the 5th July 2017, we used the Tesla App to record the exact mileage of the entire Whitecar fleet.
The mileage total is significant, and since recording it we’ve been doing some maths – serious, spreadsheet style maths.

And we have some (hopefully) interesting figures.

Our fleet has used 85 Megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity.

The equivalent use of old fashioned petrol in an equivalent fleet based on space and performance would have been 35,832 litres.

£41,207 worth of petrol.

Petrol that would have been purchased by you, our treasured customers.

The energy equivalent of that petrol is 348 MWh

So the energy saving is 75% with electric instead of petrol.

With no fumes, no particulates, and miles of throw you back in the seat smiles!

But, you didn’t come here for maths. You came here to win!

Back to the competition.

Whoever had the closest guess to that mileage total would win:


And, we included an extra accuracy bonus.

If the winning guess was exactly correct, to the mile, the person who made that guess would receive a bonus prize:


We received a huge amount of entries via our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter page and we were delighted with the response.

The total mileage, as of sunrise on the 5th July, was 236,460. And the winner, adding their guess at the last minute of the competition…

was Mr Charles Fullerton, with a guess of 235,321. So close Charles. So incredibly close…
