Tesla, the well-known manufacturer of sports electric cars, plans to introduce its Model S in Australia. This luxury sedan is rated at 500KM which aims to be the gold standard for electric power. The electric car boasts of a brawny 60 or 85 kWh battery pack and rear mounted electric motor.
When the driver switches the ignition, the car propels from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds. The car comfortably seats seven, without so much trouble to its engine when running.
Tesla Motors manufactures the best electric cars and electric power trains in the world. In car manufacturing, this company offers the most efficient way to a sustainable energy future. With this company, car enthusiasts can expect no hype, no hydrogen and no hybrids.
Established in 2003 by a group of innovative Silicon Valley engineers, Tesla motors created their first electric car. These engineers aim to prove that electric vehicles can really be functional and amazingly fast. Their first car, the Tesla Roadster, hit the road in early 2008. Just a short four years later, customers are driving emission-free 2,300 Roadsters in streets all over the world. The Tesla Model S is the newest, and together with the Tesla Model X, they are the next step in Tesla’s ‘secret plan’ to hasten the world’s change to electric mobility.
With the costs of Tesla’s batteries and power trains going down, the world’s dependence on oil-based transportation will go down as well. Newer versions of electric cars will replace the now waning age of fossil-fuel hungry cars.
Tesla has influenced the gradual filtering of electric cars into mainstream consumer vehicles. Even high-end car manufacturers like McLaren and Porsche have ventured into this renewable form of mobility with Mclaren’s P1 and Porsche’s 918 Spyder. Both employ electric motors and high capacity batteries to power the cars into neck breaking speeds.
