Tesla Motors is one of the most well-known brands in the electric vehicle world. Based in Silicon Valley in California, Tesla stunned the motoring world in 2006 when it introduced the Tesla Roadster, an electrically powered 2-seater sports car based on the Lotus Elise. It was an electric vehicle unlike any of its predecessors. It had driving characteristics comparable to cars in the highest class, sleek lines, power and performance capabilities that matched the best on the market.
The world’s leading car manufacturers instantly recognised that a long-term dream was becoming reality with the launch of an electric car that matched traditional vehicles in looks, features, speed and agility. The response of the motoring world was predictable — every leading manufacturer has announced that they will be putting an electric vehicle on the road in the near future. Tesla Motors forged a path that many other companies had tried to follow with little success.
Deliveries begin in 2012, Tesla Model S, a family car designed by Franz von Holzhausen, who was chief designer for Mazda before moving to Tesla. This fabulous electrically powered car has clean, graceful lines that set it apart in the motoring world. The Model S has seats for five adults and two children. It has a range of 480 km on a single charge, and it can reach 100 kph from a standing start in six seconds.
