From Tesla Motors Wiki

Welcome to the Tesla Motors Wiki


Imagine a five-seat luxury sedan. Leather and veneer interior. Smooth. Quiet. Refined. Now imagine that it can do zero to sixty in less than five seconds yet is the safest car in America. Sounds like a car that many drivers would aspire to own. Now imagine that it has the fuel economy of a small motorcycle. And that it gets free upgrades every month, without visiting the dealer. And can travel long distances for free, forever, on sunlight.

Not science fiction. Not something from the future. This is Tesla MotorsModel S, available today.

This wiki explains some of the key concepts behind the amazing all-electric car, the charging infrastructure, and answers many of the questions that owners and prospective owners have. The site also includes information about Tesla Motors, the huge factory in Fremont, California, the new "Gigafactory" battery facility in Nevada, and the upcoming sister car to the Model S, the Model X.
