Tesla Motors is a company that creates fully electric luxury cars. Tesla was founded by Marc Tarpenning and Martin Eberhard in 2003. Tesla first came out with a car called the Tesla Roadster, which is a small two-seat, two-door sports car. This was their first step of development into the car industry. Tesla then started to progress towards a wider range market of more affordable cars. Their next car to come out was the Model S. The Model S is a four-door sedan with standard seating for five people and as much storage space as a Chevrolet Tahoe. The next, and latest, car that Tesla released, is the Model X. The Model X is a compact SUV with seating for up to seven people.
Teslas are expensive at the time of purchase, but less expensive after that. When you buy a Tesla, you don’t have to pay for gasoline. It is an electric car, so there are far fewer moving parts, reducing maintenance costs.
The Tesla Model S gets about 89 miles per gallon equivalent, so Tesla is good for the environment by using less energy that a normal car, and having zero emissions.
The Tesla Model S is the number one safety ranked car in America as of December 2015. This car is one of the only cars to get a perfect score on the NHTSA rating. The Model S has a low center of gravity increasing performance and decreasing rollover risk. It also has boron steel reinforcement to absorb pressure in the event of a crash. When an independent facility tried to test the roof crush safety of the car, the testing machine was unable to concave the roof.
Tesla cars are also very stylish and cool. The only reason not to buy one is well… they are quite pricey.
