All models Tesla

Tesla has sought to establish itself as a maverick brand leader in the all-electric car segment. Tesla debuted with the Roadster, in 2006, to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Nikola Tesla who inspired its name. Nikola Tesla was the inventor of power transmission of alternating current, in addition to the induction motor. In keeping with the memory of the inventor, the automaker is leading the invasion of vehicles running on alternative energi‎es. Tesla’s all elecric cars and SUVs have displayed impressive performance that would be the envy of many sports car manufacturers.

The Roadster boasted a lithium-ion battery pack with 6831 individual cells. A single charge could help the Roadster go 244 miles, with an acceleration time of just 3.7 seconds to reach a speed of 60 mph, though its top speed was restricted to 125 mph. The launch of the Model S sedan, followed by the Model X SUV, helped Tesla reach out to a broader audience. While most Tesla vehicles carry a hefty price-tag, the company sought to woo buyers with a more affordable Model 3 sedan.

In the foreseeable future, fast-charging stations will become the norm worldwide, and Tesla’s electric vehicles will rule the roost.
