The royal family of England is known for its car fleet rich in exceptional models and other luxury vehicles. Machines that are most of the time English as they should be, bequeathed to the royal family by Land Rover, Jaguar, Bentley, Rolls-Royce or Aston Martin. But in recent months, Prince Charles, who has become king since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, has been driving most of the time in a foreign car. A gray Tesla Model S more precisely, in the Long Autonomy version of the 2020 vintage. As a reminder, this car equipped with batteries of a hundred kWh could officially travel 610 kilometers on a single charge but also ship the 0 to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds.
The new King Charles III of England has returned his Tesla Model S
The gray copy used by Prince Charles (who must now be called “king” therefore) is a right-hand drive model, which would have been given by the English division of Tesla to the monarch at the beginning of last year. The royal family member has been photographed in it on several occasions, despite occupying the passenger seat most of the time. The vehicle was later bought by the company Webysupercars.com then resold to a South West England dealership in Cornwall. Remember that in the United Kingdom as at home, the Tesla Model S has just returned to the brand’s catalog in a restyled version. But its first deliveries will not arrive before the very end of 2022.
A King Charles III fan of electric?
King Charles III has often communicated on ecology and seeing him in an electric car is not surprising. According to our colleagues atExpress, he even has a rather mystical vision of nature and willingly deviates towards biodynamics, anthroposophy or other more or less esoteric practices. In matters of automobile in any case, it seems more rational.
