This classy sports car is stylish, economical, sustainable and electric; a car truly in a class of its own. Clearly there are more important things but the Tesla electric car is nice to look at. Sleek, sporty, sophisticated and available in metallic and non metallic sporty colours of red, yellow, blue, green, purple and of course black.
Anyone with an interest in electric cars as an alternative drive should take a look at the Tesla Electric car. This car succeeds where other EVs (electric vehicles) have failed. Past issues of design, performance and efficiency have been addressed and resolved. The car is a real head turner. No car, electric or otherwise, can beat this vehicle for looks or design. Fitted with full luxury interior and modern specs this is a car of unparralled beauty.
The biggest complaint with EVs has been the mileage covered before a recharge facility had to be found. The Tesla carries an on board charger and can travel over 200 miles before it requires a recharge. Recharge time on this vehicle is also faster with a full recharge from complete depletion possible in just over three hours. Ideally the only recharge required will be overnight. The car can be plugged in at the end of the day and ready to go again in the morning. The Tesla is twice as efficient as a Prius, the next best vehicle on the market in terms of efficiency.
The other concern with EVs and hybrids has been speed, or more specifically lack of speed. Not anymore! The Tesla has resolved that problem too. Zero to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds with a top speed of 125 mph and the acceleration of the Tesla Electric Car is much more available to enjoy, without changing gears this car will just go.
Because electricity can be generated from a number of sources the Tesla electric car frees consumers from heavy oil dependence for transportation. 65% of American oil dependence is in the area of transportation. Imagining the ramifications of decreasing American oil dependence by 65% is easy;
- carbon emissions are hugely diminished;
- a primary reason for war in the world is eliminated
- the environment is one step closer to being saved
The performance specs of this car are so awesome even the racing car industry will be able to thrive, guilt free.
Sceptics may wonder if using electricity to power vehicles isn’t just replacing depletion of one energy resource for another. They would be wrong. Electricity can be generated from coal, solar, hydro, wind and nuclear sources. The resources required to harness the energy and the amount of energy used are both significantly reduced using electricity over oil. And electricity is adaptable, as the world changes and technologies advance, electricity production and use is malleable enough to change right along with technology. The Tesla EV can be powered by 100% renewable energy sources.
Another, perhaps more selfish reason for considering an EV is the incentives increasingly offered by government bodies to switch. For example Sacramento offers free parking to EV drivers as well as free charging stations and San Joaquin Valley are giving one to three thousand dollars cash to EV drivers.
The Tesla car company is a company of designers, engineers and most importantly visionaries. Without wanting to compromise on the joy of driving this company strives to create the sustainable cars of the future. The tires and the battery of every Tesla vehicle are recyclable and the cost is built into the purchase price of the car, so recycling is an easy choice for the consumer.
Tesla co-founders Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning wanted to create EVs that didn’t just contribute to environmental sustainability; they wanted the driver to continue enjoying the driving experience, the thrill of the road, the feeling of speed and power that makes driving for the sake of driving a pleasure. To achieve their goal, these visionaries teamed with Lotus who are the acknowledged leader worldwide in sports car assemblies, to create an electric vehicle with enhanced engineering capabilities. In doing so Tesla have successfully realized their dream in the Tesla electric car.
