Tesla road trip makes a stop in the Black Hills

Wouldn't you love take a road trip without stopping at a gas station? That's just what a group of Tesla owners are doing.

10 Teslas made a stop at the Crazy Horse Memorial on Saturday. The Custer area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the Tesla road trip in conjunction with eight Tesla car owners from Denver and two from Wyoming.

The high–tech cars, that can cost up to $100,000 each, run on electricity only. Tesla owner Rod Huffman says he's certain the Tesla is the future of the auto industry.

"This is the future. It’s probably kind of odd for people to see and all–electric car. They say, well isn't there a gasoline engine or something. It’s like, no, it's not. The one backing up here is actually completely quiet. It’s kind of neat to be able to be driving the future," Huffman said.

The group is traveling 400 miles from Denver to the Black Hills and back. This is the first such event in South Dakota. Huffman says they hope to have 25 cars next year.
