Early Wednesday, Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk tweeted a video of a Tesla P85D Model S drag racing a snowmobile on an ice lake without tire chains or studs. The race took place in Norway, which with numerous incentives to buy electric cars (tax reduction, toll free driving and free charging) remains one of Tesla's biggest markets.
