The Insight received an EPA mileage reading of 61 mpg city and a 70 mpg highway.
The company's second vehicle was the Model S, a completely electrical luxury sedan. Tesla additionally markets electrical powertrain elements, as well as lithium-ion battery packs, to automakers, as well as engineer and Toyota. Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, has said he envisions Tesla as an independent maker, geared toward eventually providing electrical cars worth cheap to the typical client.

Big Bang disruption can be described as the use of simplicity to swiftly change the market. Tesla is only a small California electric car company, but is special because it set out to change the effect technology can have on cars and car buying. Tesla Motors went after a different type of customer with their dealerships and sold them a very different kind of car. While it can be argued that Tesla is still only a small California electric car company, it can’t be argued that Tesla disrupted the car retail experience. Their model lead to more than “1 million store visitors in a single year, 15,000+ Model S reservations made in-store and online, +85% increase in revenue in the first year, and the Model S being named “Motor Trend Car of the Year”” These results are why the big bang theory applies to the Tesla dealership model.
The real-life Tony Stark is revolutionizing the car industry. Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has started building all electric cars and SUVs and they are taking over the electric vehicle market. Although electric vehicles have been around for a while, Elon Musk and Tesla are the first to create an attractive car that gets fantastic range. Previous electric cars had odd proportions, did not get good range, or were unreasonably priced. Tesla now offers a solution to these issues.
It achieved 245 miles (394 km) on a single charge, a range unprecedented for a production electric car, according to Britannica encyclopedia. This success followed with the production of a fully electric luxury sedan, the Model S, which was followed by Model X, a crossover between the two. As of March 31st, 2016, a new model, the Model 3 has been revealed. The Model 3 is a more affordable and less luxurious prototype, for average people looking to help the environment. The mission statement of Tesla Motors Inc. as pointed out by CEO Elon Musk himself, “To accelerate the advent of sustainable transport by bringing compelling mass market electric cars to market as soon as possible.” Says Musk.
Company Background Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 by a group of intrepid Silicon Valley engineers led by successful business owner, Elon Musk as another one of his top successful ventures over recent years past. They utilized Nikola Tesla into their brand name because their engine model was created using his personal models and technology. Musk’s goal revolves around accelerating the world’s transition towards electric mobility through providing a range of increasingly affordable electric vehicles, while simultaneously catalyzing innovation within the industry. The company designs, manufactures and sells electric vehicles and electric vehicle powertrain components. They are also the only automaker providing highway capable electric vehicles in North America and Europe.
For the next year, the company wants to deliver between 80,000 and 90,000 copies of MODEL S and X ( an increase between 58% and 78% compared to the previous year). As seen previously, the company has launched, since the beginning, 3 products: ● The ROADSTER: launched in 2008.

Before their future can be discussed we must know where they began and what has transpired along the way.
The first concerns about auto emissions reestablished interest in electric vehicles. From then on, car companies strive to make better fuel efficient cars and hybrids. From the 1960s to now there has been major improvements in the technology of the hybrid car. Some improvements include the phase out of the NiCad battery. up until 2010, every hybrid vehicle operates using a Nickel-Cadmium battery pack to store power for its electric motor.
