With the thousands of prizes given away on The Price is Right
decades, it's hard to top the things that have come before. But, today, a new record will be set. To mark Earth Day, Drew Carey and company will offer up a Tesla Roadster
on today's show. According to a short note Tesla
sent us, "This will be the most expensive prize ever offered on the show. CBS anticipates this to be one of their most exciting episodes ever." If you miss it on the broadcast, you can watch the show here
, probably starting tomorrow. Having not seen the show in years, we were honestly blown away by how excited the people who "come on down" still get as they make their way to the stage. Amazing.
Speaking of amazing, Tesla
also claims that:
As of this week, Tesla's worldwide community of owners has driven a collective 4 million electric miles. That's 160 times around the Earth without a puff of tailpipe smoke. The four million electric miles driven by Tesla Roadsters saved 200,000 gallons of gas and 10,562 barrels of oil. They prevented over 2 million pounds of CO2 emissions, the equivalent to taking almost 60,000 cars off the road for a day.
Four million fun miles, those were.
