Tesla has had a huge impact on the auto industry. Tesla has changed the game on electric vehicles. It’s not just because of Tesla’s innovative ideas, but also because of how it has changed the game in electric vehicles. With its Model S, Tesla has shown that EVs can be just as good as gasoline-powered cars. Its list of features includes a high-performance engine, all-wheel drive, seating for up to seven people, and a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds.
Tesla’s Model S is also attractive because it offers many of the same creature comforts as other luxury vehicles: heated seats, power windows and doors, and even Wi-Fi hotspot capability. The Model S is also easy to use — there are no keys to lose or fobs to carry around. Instead, the car unlocks automatically when you approach it with your smartphone in hand.
Tesla has become so successful that other automakers are following suit by introducing their own line of electric vehicles (EVs). In fact, GM recently announced plans to manufacture 20 new EVs by 2017 and Volkswagen plans to introduce 30 new models by 2025 — all with some level of electrification built in.
Tesla’s biggest achievement has been improving battery technology. It created its own battery cell, called the 2170, which will power its upcoming Model 3 vehicle and be used in future models. The company also built a large-scale battery factory in Nevada called Gigafactory 1. The factory produces more batteries than any other facility in the world and is ramping up production as quickly as possible to meet demand for Tesla’s vehicles.
Tesla has also been transparent about its products and plans for the future. Although this isn’t always an easy thing to do — especially when you’re trying to keep up with demand — it shows customers that their money is being invested wisely by giving them insights into what’s coming down the pipeline next from Tesla.
Electric vehicles were once seen as nerdy and impractical because they were slow, weighed a lot and didn’t have much range. But Tesla changed all that with its stylish design, high-performance features and long range — making EVs desirable again.
The Tesla Model S was designed to appeal to mainstream consumers who wouldn’t normally consider buying an EV because they thought they’d be too expensive or not powerful enough. It proved that EVs could be stylish, powerful and fun to drive — just like any other car on the market (but without gas!).
In 2010, when Tesla first introduced its Model S sedan, it was on par with most other EVs on the market in terms of range; however, it soon became clear that Tesla’s vehicles were significantly better than their competitors’. The Model S can travel up to 480 kilometers (300 miles) on a single charge depending on model and options selected, while most other EVs have ranges of less than 200 kilometers (124 miles).
