2012: The Year of Electric Driving | Tesla Motors

Tesla designs and manufactures electric vehicles and EV powertrain components. Tesla’s products include the Tesla Roadster and the Tesla Model S, available in 2012. Tesla’s goal is to produce increasingly affordable electric cars to mainstream buyers.
 
 
Tesla’s advanced electric powertrain delivers exhilarating performance. Unlike the internal combustion engine with hundreds of moving pieces that spark, pump, belch, and groan, the Tesla motor has only one moving piece: the rotor. As a result, Model S acceleration is instantaneous, like flipping a switch. Hit the accelerator. In 5.6 seconds, Model S is traveling 60 miles per hour, without hesitation and without a drop of gasoline.
