Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 in Silicon Valley, California in an effort to show how cool electric vehicles could be. Less than 10 years later, the automaker has far exceeded anyone’s expectations on just how any car, especially electric, could be.
In early 2008, Tesla Motors released their Roadster model, which was on the wish lists of celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Jay Leno. Now in 2012, there are over 2,300 Roadsters driving in more than 37 countries and is still one of the world’s most desired cars. The Roadster can accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 3.7 seconds and drive 245 miles per charge—all with zero tailpipe emissions.
This summer, Tesla’s Model S hit the streets to much acclaim. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.6 seconds, drive 300 miles at 55 mph per charge, and just like the Roadster, it does not contain a tailpipe.
Tesla’s main goals when developing their advanced batteries and powertrains are to decrease global fuel dependence as well as driving down the cost of electric vehicles. You can expect Tesla to implement these goals in their upcoming Tesla Model X, scheduled to deliver by 2014.
Like many other automakers, Tesla is promoting their newest model through touring North America. Tesla’s Model S Signature features zero tailpipe emissions, instantaneous acceleration, and the ability to drive 300 miles per charge. The EV has been wildly popular and is already sold out until the fall.
As a promotion, Tesla’s Get Amped Model S Tour is inviting a few lucky thousand North American Reservation Holders to test drive the Model S. The tour will feature all 10 colors of the Model S as well as every available interior option that has been showcased in their Design Studio. Don’t fret about being left out though as those who were late in the game still have hope in joining in on the fun. Tesla is opening up a waitlist and allowing each Reservation Holder to bring up to three guests.
Tesla Motors will host several day events all around North America. Check out the dates and locations of the tour below:
Fremont, CA June 23 – 24
