Tesla police car runs out of....power

Teslas are super cool. Aside from being pretty, they're the fastest production car in existence right now. They'll do 0-60 in 2.1 seconds, which is INCREDIBLE. A police department in California has added some Teslas to their fleet in an attempt to be more eco-friendly...Teslas are electric cars that can go about 300 miles on a charge, and have zero emissions.

That's all well and good...until you're in the middle of a police chase and run out of batteries! The officer had to give up pursuit of the suspect when the vehicles battery ran out. OOPS!

“The Tesla wasn’t fully charged at the beginning of the shift,” a Fremont police spokesperson told KPIX 5. “This, unfortunately, happens from time to time, even in our vehicles that run on gas, if they aren’t refueled at the end of a shift.”
