All About Tesla - Week 9
In 2003 a young South African entrepreneur by the name of Elon Musk (founder of PayPal, SpaceX, and a few other well known companies) founded what has revolutionized the entire car world as a whole. Elon Musk came up with the brand, Tesla Motors. Tesla Motors was going to be the largest electric car manufacture in the world. As climate change is rising, we needed a way to drop CO2 emissions fast! And Elon Musk found a cure for that problem, all electric vehicles. Tesla Motors began with the Roadster. The Tesla Roadster was a two door convertible all electric sports car. Because of its lightweight design, it was able to perform like its competing automobiles in its class. After the Roadster, a lot of naysayers kept doubting the future of Tesla Motors. But then Tesla brought out the Model S. The Model S is an all electric luxury sedan with surprisingly a lot of performance potential. And now in 2016, they have come out with an SUV, the Model X. Rumor has it that coming soon they'll have an economic car as well that the general public will be able to afford. The best thing, in my opinion, about Elon Musk and his company, Tesla Motors, is that it is truly trying to revolutionize the future for the best of the world. Elon Musk opened all patents to the company so that anybody can take his idea and help save the Earth. This is unheard of, but that is why Tesla Motors is one of my favorite car manufacturers!
