Founded in 2003 by a group of engineers in Silicon Valley, Tesla Motors was created with the aim of proving that electric cars could be better than gasoline-powered cars.
Launching their first car, the Tesla Roadster, in 2008, they set the standard for electric mobility. Using an AC induction motor, patented by inventor and engineer Nikola Tesla, the Roadster achieves 245 miles per charge and reaches 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds. Not satisfied with just the one revolutionary car, the brand launched the Model S in 2012, the family car that redefined the concept of a four-door car. Driving 265 miles per charge, the Model S was named Motor Trend’s 2013 Car of the Year.
In 2014, they unveiled further improvements to the Model S including a two dual motor all-wheel drive configurations as well as supercar acceleration. The Model S goes from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds, making it the fastest four-door production car ever made.
Tesla owners enjoy the luxury of being able to charge their vehicle at home as well as having free access to the Tesla Supercharger network meaning they never have to visit a petrol station again. Replenishing half a charge in as little as 20 minutes, the network connects routes in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
Currently, the brand has more than 50,000 cars on the road and are working on launching Model X, the crossover vehicle claiming to defy categorisation and will be the most capable, fastest and safest SUV in history.
