Tesla Motors (often shortened to Tesla) is an American automaker and energy storage company co-founded by Martin Eberhard, Marc Tarpenning, JB Straubel, Elon Musk and Ian Wright, and is based in Palo Alto, California. The company specializes in electric cars and their powertrain components and also produces battery charging equipment.[7][8][9]
Tesla first gained widespread attention following its production of the Tesla Roadster, the first electric sports car, in 2008.[10] The company's second vehicle, the Model S, an electric luxury sedan, debuted in 2012. In Q1 2013, Tesla released its stock profits for the first time from its NASDAQ ticker symbol.[11][12] Global sales for the Model S passed the 100,000 units milestone in December 2015, three and a half years after its introduction,[13] and it was the world's best-selling plug-in vehicle that year.[14] As of June 2016, the Model S ranked as the world's all-time second-best-selling plug-in after the Nissan Leaf.[15] The car was then followed by the Model X, a crossover SUV. Tesla's next vehicle is the Model 3,[16] which was unveiled in March 2016 and is slated for release in 2017 with a price at US$35,000 before any government incentives.[17][18]

Tesla was founded by Martin Eberhard, Marc Tarpenning, JB Straubel, Elon Musk and Ian Wright, and is based in Palo Alto, California. It launched its first car, the Tesla Roadster, the first electric sports car, in 2008 - and has been at the forefront of the electric car revolution that has swept through the 2010s.

In 2012, it launched the Model S, a dramatic-looking four-door fastback that combined performance and a decent range in one single package. Global sales for the Model S passed the 100,000 mark in 2015, with no signs of any let-up in demand. Tesla's third major model development, the Model 3, promises to lift sales significantly.
