TESLA The car of tomorrow MOTORS By: Rachel Politi & Linda Yang The Idea There are dozens of eco-friendly cars and dozens of luxury vehicles in the market today, however, Tesla has is the first to combine the two. Tesla utilizes both the luxury market and
green market in the car market, by providing the worlds first luxury electric car. Its ecofriendly capacities and sharp aesthetics attract many sectors of the car-buying market. Tesla also provides the electric powertrain equipment, such as the Tesla Supercharger Station and their backup batteries. What the Experts Are Saying : Tesla is the icon of this industry. It Naturally, is not only an awesome electric car, but is also
widely considered the best car ever mass manufactured (by auto journalists and gearheads). Its manufacturing was just starting to ramp up, things were going well for the company, and it looked like 10 years or so of investment were indeed going to pay off. - Zachary Shahan Site Director, Blogger at Important Media. Attended UNCChapel Hill http://www.autoevolution.com/image/tesla-motors-model-s-2012/45345.html CEO : Elon Musk
Elon Musk is the owner and CEO of Telsa Motors. Prior to Tesla, Musk invented PayPal, Zip2 and was the CEO/CTO of SpaceX (Space Exploration Technologies). He has a Physics degree from U-Penn and a business degree from Wharton. He created Tesla Motors, because he has always been focused on creating products that are environmentally friendly while also being cutting edge in the technological world. The Product Models : Model S- The poster-child of the Tesla Motors Company: premium electric sedan. The model Ss electric powertrain delivers instantaneous acceleration allowing it
to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in 5.4 seconds (Model S). the combination of a long wheelbase, stiff structure, and compliant tune of the air-spring suspension makes for a gentle, cosseting ride. Teslas most popular model, Model S, is the worlds first premium sedan to be engineered from the ground up as an electric vehicle. Model S was named Motor Trends prestigious 2013 Car of the Year, achieved the best safety score of any car ever tested by the NHTSA, and Consumer Reports is calling it the best car it has ever tested Model X:-The high-end/luxury version of an SUV. The design of the model x blends the functionality and benefits of a minivan and the fuel efficiency of a fully electric car (Model X). The vehicles unique falcon wing doors allow easy accessibility to the interior while maintaining a sleek design. In this growing "green" society, more and more people are wanting to cut the
exertion of fossil fuels into the atmosphere by driving fuel efficient cars. Tesla exceeds the fuel efficient standard by having a powerful electric engine that limits the amount of energy lost to heat and friction.

Competition Nissan Leaf : Tesla is both an electric AND Luxury Car, as where Nissan Leaf only satisfies those looking for a electric car. Leaf does not offer heated seats or advanced heating systems for the winter. The Tesla battery also last much longer. The Tesla is also much larger, so it can accommodate families and groups of bigger sizes. BMW i3 : Tesla is a much more conventional car, as the BMW has been described as narrow and small. The BMW i3 and Tesla both appeal to the luxury crowd, and in that case, the Tesla provides far better computer systems and luxury
additions than the BMW i3. The Tesla also provides a 265 mile range, as where the BMW only provides a 180 mile range. Additionally, the top speed of the BMW is only 93 mph. The Results : Stock Edgar Online Exponential Rise in

Tesla vehicles are the only cars that are completely electric. Because of this, there are no car companies that can compete with the fully electric range of Tesla vehicles. There is a growing demand for fuel efficient technology and the tesla is at the forefront. Bibliography "BMW i3 VS. Tesla Model S: The Ultimate Comparison." The Street.
