The 21st Century Power Train “ TESLA”
The Tesla Model S is a full-sized electric four
door sedan produced by Tesla Motors.
Tesla’s advanced electric powertrain delivers
Unlike the internal combustion engine with hundreds
of moving pieces that spark, pump, belch, and
groan, the Tesla motor has only one moving piece:
As a result, Model S acceleration is
instantaneous, like flipping a switch. Hit the
accelerator. In 5.6 seconds.
Model S is traveling 60 miles per hour, without
hesitation and without a drop of gasoline.
The HISTORY behind “TESLA”
The Tesla Model S is a high-performance, premium electric
sedan that intends to compete with cars such BMW 5-series.
Tesla Roadster sports car Model S was styled by Franz von
In February 2010 it was reported that Tesla Motors was
planning to offer a range-extended version of its Model S. This
version would have included a gasoline engine to extend the
driving range of the vehicle, but it was removed in later
revisions. At the GoingGreen conference in September
2011, Musk announced that Tesla was only developing allelectric cars and not hybrids.
The Model S was featured on Late Show with David
Letterman in April 2011. Because the car uses no gasoline and
does not produce any tailpipe emissions, it was allowed on the
Late Show set and was the first fully functioning car on stage.
“MODEL S” PERFORMANCE
S Performance takes
electric performance to the next
Equipped with the 85 kilowatthour battery and a high
performance drive inverter, Model
S Performance accelerates to 60
miles per hour in 4.4 seconds.
If driven the same way as Model
S, both cars achieve the same
efficiency thanks to the unique
Model S Performance features an
interior replete with Alcantara
and carbon fiber accents.
Agility & Grace The Model S suspension system was
developed for the unique architecture of Model S. It works
in harmony with the rigid and light Tesla platform to
provide precision handling and optimum comfort.
Active Air Suspension Much more than a great ride
and handling package, the Active Air Suspension
combines automatic advantages with on-demand
features. As Model S accelerates, it lowers the vehicle for
optimized aerodynamics and increased range.
Power Steering Electronic Power Steering
automatically reacts to driving conditions to stay
comfortable and responsive at all speeds.
GO FARTHER …
Model S sets the bar for electric driving range.
Model S is offered with three battery
options, each delivering unprecedented range.
All three batteries are contained within the same
enclosure, integrating with the vehicle in the same
way, providing structural, aerodynamic, and
All three batteries use automotive-grade
lithium-ion cells arranged for optimum energy
density, thermal management, and safety.
CHARGING: Plug in Anywhere
Model S comes standard with everything you
need to plug into the most common 240-volt
outlet, standard 120-volt wall outlets and public
Using a high-amperage 240-volt outlet, Model S
can be recharged at the rate of 100 km range per
A fifty-percent charge in thirty minutes can be
achieved with a Tesla Supercharger.
THE STYLING !!!
Model S epitomizes efficiency, embodying the grace and
performance of a world-class athlete. Its sculpted form
expresses a constant state of speed and motion.
With the All Glass Panoramic Roof, Model S is the only
sedan capable of delivering a convertible-like drive
experience every day. It's more than a sunroof: the entire
roof is constructed from lightweight safety glass.
With a simple swipe of the Touchscreen, it opens wider
than any other sedan's panoramic roof. On even the
hottest days, the innovative glass keeps the cabin
BUILT AROUND THE DRIVER
Model S is a driver’s car. Behind the wheel, you’ll notice
that Tesla has combined meticulous noise engineering
with Tesla’s uniquely quiet powertrain to obtain the sound
dynamics of a recording studio.
The gem of the interior is the 17” touchscreen. It puts
rich content at your fingertips and provides mobile

married to the state-of-the-art body structure.
Model S achieves even higher torsional rigidity and
a lower center of gravity.
The battery itself is designed for safety. Liquidcooled, the battery maintains consistent temperatures
to prevent cells from overheating. In the event of a

NO TAILPIPE, ZERO EMISSIONS.
With no tailpipe to spew harmful emissions, Tesla vehicles
liberate their owners from the petroleum-burning
Gasoline-powered vehicles and hybrids burn refined
petroleum. Tesla vehicles can use electricity however it is
produced, be it from coal, solar, hydro, geothermal, or
As the grid shifts to increasingly efficient
technologies, Tesla owners reap the efficiency benefits.
