Tesla Motors is a public company that trades on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the symbol TSLA. After 10 years, Tesla posted profits for the first time during the first quarter of 2013.[2][3] Tesla Motors gained widespread attention by producing the Tesla Roadster, the first fully electric sports car,[4] followed by the Model S, a fully electric luxury sedan. Tesla also markets electric powertrain components, including lithium-ion battery packs, to other automakers, including Daimler and Toyota.[5] Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, has said he envisions Tesla as an independent automaker,[6] aimed at eventually mass-producing fully electric cars at a price affordable to the average consumer. Retail deliveries of the Model S in the U.S. began on June 22, 2012, at a special event held at the Tesla Factory in California.[19] The sedan was originally code-named "Whitestar." [88] Tesla is building the Model S [21] in Fremont, California in an assembly plant formerly operated by NUMMI, a defunct joint venture of Toyota and General Motors.[20][89] The United States Environmental Protection Agency range for the 85 kW·h battery pack model, the first trim launched in the United States market, is 265 mi (426 km),[90] and 208 mi (335 km) for the model with the 60 kW·h battery.[91] Among other awards, the Model S won the 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year,[92] the 2013 World Green Car of the Year,[93] Automobile Magazine's 2013 Car of the Year,[94] and Time Magazine Best 25 Inventions of the Year 2012 award.[95] About 2,650 Model S cars were sold in the U.S. during 2012,[71] and 4,900 units during the first quarter of 2013, allowing the Model S to become the top selling plug-in electric car in North America during the first quarter of 2013, ahead of the Chevrolet Volt with 4,421 units, and the Nissan Leaf with 3,695.[2] Tesla increased its 2013 sales target to 21,000 units in April 2013,[2] and expects global sales of 30,000 units in 2014, with 15,000 units in the United States, 10,000 units in Europe and 5,000 in Asia.[96]

How It Feels Going From A Chevy Volt To A Tesla Model S
For the past week, I've been cruising around in a Chevy Volt. But for one day, I got the privilege of driving a Tesla Model S. (And not just any Tesla Model S either. I got to drive the more powerful, higher end Tesla Model S P 85, which starts at $87,070 after a $7,500 federal tax credit.) While the Chevy Volt (base price of $26,685 with a tax credit) and Tesla Model S aren't exactly in the same class, I really liked the styling and performance of the Volt. Not to mention Chevy's offering is a plug-in hybrid — meaning it can run on either electricity or gas. So, what does an extra $60,000 get you in the Tesla Model S that you can't get in the Chevy Volt?
