Tesla, Inc., is an emerging American car manufacturer and clean energy firm based in Palo Alto, CA. The firm specializes in solar energy cell, battery and grid level energy storage systems from small residential production to large industrial production. It currently has a joint venture with SolarCity Corporation, a company which provides solar power systems and batteries for the purpose of storing and distributing electric power generated by solar energy.
At present, Tesla Motors has developed four models, namely, the Model S, the Model X, the Model 3 and the Model Y. These cars are built on a high-end technology called the ‘Autopilot’ that enables these cars to drive themselves in certain conditions. This high-end technology of the cars is considered as a new development in automotive technology.
Tesla Motors’ technology enables these cars to detect and avoid obstacles and maintain a safe distance from other cars in front of them on highways. The vehicles automatically adjust the steering wheel angle and accelerate to a certain speed, depending on the road conditions. The vehicles also have a ‘steering assist’ feature that enables the driver to control the acceleration and braking capabilities of the vehicle, depending on the vehicle’s current position. The car is also equipped with a ‘GPS’ navigation system that allows the driver to locate themselves on the road and avoid accidents.
In addition to the car’s technologies, the battery of the Tesla electric cars is also technologically advanced. It uses lithium ion cells to produce a maximum of 2020 watt-hours of electricity per full discharge. This battery pack is also known as ‘gigafactory’ and is located at the Gigafactory factory. The production and manufacture of batteries at this factory is expected to reduce the cost of electric cars to more than half the cost.
The electric cars of the Tesla have a number of advantages over traditional cars and they also offer long trips, better fuel economy and are more environmentally friendly. However, there is some controversy regarding the manufacturing of these cars due to their high production cost. The cost is estimated to be double the cost of gas cars.
The firm also offers services related to the installation of battery packs for its cars. The company’s website also contains information related to their product line.
The main advantage of electric cars is that they can save hundreds of dollars per year on gasoline costs. Moreover, they are environmentally friendly because they do not release harmful emissions. They are also considered to be very convenient and easy to drive compared to conventional cars. The electric cars can be easily charged by using the car’s DC power.
Another advantage of the cars of the Tesla is the fact that they can accommodate two people comfortably. They also have an automatic shut off feature that enables the driver to drive the vehicle without any assistance.
