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.
