Tesla Motors, Inc. is a Silicon Valley-based company that designs, manufactures and sells electric cars and electric vehicle powertrain components. 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.
Tesla Motors gained widespread attention by producing the Tesla Roadster, the first fully electric sports car, 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. Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, has said he envisions Tesla as an independent automaker, 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. The sedan was originally code-named "Whitestar."  Tesla is building the Model S  in Fremont, California in an assembly plant formerly operated by NUMMI, a defunct joint venture of Toyota and General Motors. 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), and 208 mi (335 km) for the model with the 60 kW·h battery.
Among other awards, the Model S won the 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year, the 2013 World Green Car of the Year, Automobile Magazine's 2013 Car of the Year, and Time Magazine Best 25 Inventions of the Year 2012 award. About 2,650 Model S cars were sold in the U.S. during 2012, 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. Tesla increased its 2013 sales target to 21,000 units in April 2013, 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.
Tesla Motors Model S: Part 2 of Many! Driving
Tesla Model S Deliver and Complete Walk Around and Drive Part 2 of
2015 Tesla Model S P85 D (700hp) - 0-240 km/h acceleration (60fps)
INSANEly Fast Autobahn acceleration test with the new Tesla Model S P85 D
delivering a mind-blowing 700 hp and around 900 Nm of torque, at a
standstill! Yes, the test was actually setting off from 5-10 km/h but
nevertheless the acceleration in all scenarios is jut mind-blowing taking
about 1 sec. from 0-50 km/h. To set the acceleration in perspective, the
car weighs well over 2 tons, and we had 3 large adults on board. The power
applied is actually dependent on how fast you hit the throttle and the
problem is, that the g-forces (at least 2g) are so immense that you are
pulled back while trying to mash the "gas" all the way through...never
experienced something like this! As the car has only 1 gear its pretty
obvious that the acceleration decreases once you are reaching higher speeds
and the red numbers indicate that you are getting close to 250 km/h were
the max rpms of the motors are reached. And of course, sorry for my college
that kept laughing and commenting although that I told him we were shooting
a video...well;) If you LIKE this don't hesitate to COMMENT & SUBSCRIBE and

One Year: Tesla Model S
One year ago my family took delivery of our Signature Model S Vin number
967. Since then we have loved every minute with it. Owning the Tesla has
been an incredible experience. We made this video to share our experience
with other potential Tesla owners. This is what it is like to own a Tesla.
Special thanks go out to my parents, Hugh and Karen Levenson. Thank you for
for your help and patience. All of the interview answers were candid; I did
not give them any prior warning as to what questions I would be asking
about their car.
If you have any comments or questions please leave them in the space below.
Thanks for watching!
