Video: Surviving A Zombie Apocalypse With The Tesla Model S

June 25th, 2014 by  

America has already experienced a world where petrol supplies are in short demand, and it isn’t pretty. But imagine what would happen to gasoline and diesel supplies in the case of a zombie apocalypse or other doomsday scenario? How would we survive?

Well Kmanauto of YouTube notoriety put together this teaser video of what will be a series about how to survive the end of the world with the Tesla Model S. His supplies include a pistol, a power inverter, a small generator, and of course his electric sedan. So how does he plan on recharging the Tesla without access to gas or other fossil fuels? He isn’t saying just yet, only hinting that it is a very old fashioned source of power, leading us to speculate its either steam or human-power he plans to use to charge his Tesla.


The advantages of having an EV in a post-apocalyptic world are long and numerous, as solar panels would mean free energy to constantly recharge for ventures outside the compound. The 73 miles of range might not seem like a lot in today’s world, but in a doomsday scenario, it could put a lot of distance between you and pursuers on foot or horseback. Sustainable technology would be a huge benefit in a world where our energy resources are all but eliminated, and could become beacons of hope in a world gone mad.

A Tesla Model S would be an even bigger boon, as its faster, roomier, and can go 265 miles on a full charge. But getting a full charge without relying on modern infrastructure? We’ll have to wait and see what Kmanauto has in mind.

Check out our new 93-page EV report, based on over 2,000 surveys collected from EV drivers in 49 of 50 US states, 26 European countries, and 9 Canadian provinces.
