Cross-Country Journey of Two Teslas Sets Milestone for Electric Vehicles

Though electric vehicle (EV) sales surged by 84 percent last year and the U.S. government recently prioritized $50 million for their advancement, skepticism remains regarding their long-distance viability.

Tesla Motors sought to dispel that leeriness this weekend by driving two Model S sedans from New York City to Los Angeles using only the company's scattered supercharger stations along the way to power the vehicles. The result was an astounding 76-hour journey that put the usability of EVs on display for the entire world.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk visited CBS This Morning this week to discuss the milestone and what EVs will mean to the future of transportation.
