Profile
Tesla was founded in 2003 in Silicon Valley and shifted the rather traditional automotive scene in turmoil. Elon Musk, founder and CEO of the company, who is known among other things for his commitment for example Solar City and SpaceX, describes the overarching goal of Tesla thus, drive change from an internal economy to a solar electric industry. After the introduction of the Tesla Roadster, a supercar in the luxury sector in 2008, the launch of the Model S took place in 2012, the first 100% electric premium sedan. Finally, a few months ago Tesla's third vehicle was presented, the Model X. This SUV combines the space of a minivan with the performance of a sports car. In 2017/2018 the Model 3 will be presented, a typical middle-class vehicle, which will significantly contribute to the final breakthrough of the electric mobility.

to sell as many residential battery systems around the world as possible and provide consumers with energy independence from utilites. Many competitors diversified into selling home batteries from other markets, and as a result have less attractive products for the residential market, which is not their priority. Tesla for example started out making electric cars, and LG Chem the battery cells which are supplied to multiple industries. -A competitive upfront price which seems to be half the cost of the industry average in its main market: Germany. -There may be battery supply shortages as electric mobility is prioritised by battery makers. However, because automakers have converged on NMC for its higher energy density, Sonnen's choice of LFP cells may be an unexpected advantage.

Hot Performance and Cool Operation for Electric Vehicle Motors

The market for electric vehicles is set to exceed $1,000bn by 2030 but potential consumers are still concerned with range, cost and safety. Whilst this draws attention initially to the battery, an equally important factor and unifying component of electric vehicles is the electric motor and its effective thermal management.
