Tesla Motors, also known as White Star (Code Name) was first produced in 2012 in United States, Fremont in California at Tesla Factory. Tesla’s model S dismisses the tralatitious thinking about the EVs- that- it’s a glance of the future, which helped it earn 10 best awards of 2015. Range anxiety in Tesla’s models is not a concern issue because of unlimited charging at Tesla’s network of supercharger stations is accommodated for all the models.

The car has a battery of 691 hp. It is built for the impatient, watch checker people who believe in the mantra that “waiting is for suckers.” To get the best performance it can get, Tesla has added a 221 hp electric motor for driving the front wheels. And to provide the 4 wheel drive there is a 470 hp rear motor. From this spring, a same kind of two- motor set up will also be available on all the S models of Tesla. Not only that, even the X models will also share the same system.

Power delivery of the car is immediate, just like an experience of driving a sports car in the lowest of its gear with the engine advancing right at its torque peak, all the time!  It is shockingly quick. Once you’ve kicked on the accelerator, the car jumps ahead on the wave of power. You don’t have to be wasting your time in traffic with such great power in your car. You can cover distances in the blink of an eye. It has THAT unbelievable power! There’s no downshifting, no waiting, and really no effort!

At first, you may find the electric silence a bit odd, but later on it soothes, which enhances the driving experience. The big battery pack that’s in the floor, acts like a big lithium – ion mattress and envelops the loud road noises. Once you’ve experienced the Tesla for a few days, you’ll see the difference between it and the gas- powered cars.
