Tesla Roadster Sports

Tesla’s first-generation Roadster is widely considered a proof-of-concept. The EV started production in 2008 and ended its production run in 2012. There were only about 2,500 units sold worldwide.

The next generation Roadster is considered to be the fastest production car that was ever created. Elon Musk said that the reasons behind the new Roadster, which is a 4-seater, is to give a “hardcore smackdown” to the combustion car. It is the very first supercar to beat every performance record while still seating four people. Is all-electric and maximizes the potential of aerodynamic engineering. It has record-setting performance and efficiency.
A lightweight, removable glass roof will be able to be stored in the trunk. This allows for an open-air, convertible driving experience.

The terms of acceleration are as follows:

0-60: 1.9 seconds
0-100: 4.2 seconds
.25 miles: 8.8 seconds

Due to the size of the battery, the suggested range of 620 miles is incredible but entirely plausible. The car should be able to have a top speed of over 250 miles per hour.

The base price of the Roadster will be $200,000. This makes it a very expensive vehicle, but you’re paying for a top of the line product that can’t be beaten in performance.

Tesla Model Y Teaser

Tesla Model Y SUV

Largely due to the success of the Model 3, Tesla plans on introducing an all-electric crossover in late 2019 or early 2020. The EV will likely be based on the drivetrain of the Model 3.

It is said that the vehicle will have falcon wing doors like the model X.
It has been suggested that the crossover will be very much like the Model 3 with similar features as well.
It will have a full hatch and a crossover form factor.
This is kind of like how the Model S is similar to the Model X.

It is said to have a panoramic windshield.

Model Y production likely won’t start until 2020 due to the slow production of the Model 3.
It is expected that the Model Y will sell somewhere between 500,000 and 1 million units per year.

Pricing has yet to be confirmed on the Model Y, but there has been talking that it could have a $5000 premium over the price of the Model 3. The Model 3 currently starts at $45,000 before any upgrades. That being said, Tesla is still promising to have a more affordable $35,000 version of the Model 3. This could mean the Model Y could start as low as $40,000.

Tesla Model X P 100 D SUV

Tesla Model X Pros & Cons

The Tesla Model X is, arguably, the most versatile electric vehicle on sale today. It has a good range, it's fast, and it has plenty of space.

Features

The Model X comes with five seats as standard but this can be upgraded to as many as seven. When the rear seats aren't in use, the second and third rows can be folded down flat. This feature means the Model X has a total cargo capacity of 88.1 cubic feet - more than any of its competitors.

Like the Model S, a 17-inch touchscreen is the centerpiece of the cabin in the Model X. Bluetooth, collision avoidance, automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera, power, and heated side mirrors, and proximity key entry are all standard features.

Optional extras include Enhanced Autopilot, a 17-speaker sound system, a high amperage charger, and satellite radio.

Style

Rear falcon wing doors are a key stylistic feature of the Model X. The doors have sensors to ensure they don't hit obstacles when they open. Not only are the falcon wing doors stylish but they also offer excellent access to the second and optional third-row seats.

There's great visibility in the front, thanks to the Model X's panoramic windshield. This also means that all passengers can expect good headroom.

Tesla Model X P100D Specifics

Tesla Model S P100D Sedan

Tesla Model S Pros & Cons

The Tesla Model S has been the crème de la crème of the EV industry since it first launched in 2012.
For all intents and purposes, it still is. Although it is one of the most expensive cars in the industry, you're paying for a top quality product.

Style

The Model S has remained, relatively, unchanged over its five-year life but for 2017 there have been some subtle changes.

This year's Model S has a smoother shape, much like the new Model 3. This is due, in a large part, to a more streamlined body the removal of its faux front grille. The front grille has been replaced by a fascia and the headlights have also been updated.

Interior

The Model S is, arguably, even nicer on the inside than the outside. Two new trim choices have been introduced this year - Figured Ash Wood and Dark Ash Wood.

A 1-inch capacitive touchscreen is the centerpiece of the cockpit. Through this, you can access everything from the WiFi to the navigation system. To top it off you'll get free maps and navigation updates for 7 years.

Features

The features available on Tesla's Model S are practically endless. At the top of the list is Tesla's Autopilot, which allows for hands-free driving and parking. Although, legally, you need to be ready to take the wheel at all times.

Tesla's Autopilot now has a 'summon' feature, which allows you to summon the car to you at the touch of a button. This year's model comes with an upgraded 48-amp onboard charger, which allows for faster charging from a 240-volt power outlet.

There's also the HEPA air-filtration system. This is significantly more effective than conventional air filters at removing pollution and toxins from the air.

To help put customers mind at ease Tesla offers an 8 year or unlimited miles battery and drive unit warranty. The vehicle itself is protected by a 4 year or 50,000 miles warranty.

Tesla Model 3 RWD Standard

Following the top of the line, high-quality, proof-of-concept vehicles such as the Model S and X, the Tesla Model 3 is a car that has truly brought about the age of the electric transportation, following a century of petrol-powered vehicles.

Tesla Model S

Since first launching in 2012, the Tesla Model S has been considered the best and the brightest of the EV industry. For the most part, it still is. Though considered to be one of the most expensive cars on the market, you are paying for the highest quality. Though it is largely unchanged since its original launching date, 2017 has brought some minor changes to this vehicle that have offered stylistic changes to the appearance. For one, the faux front grille has been removed and replaced with a fascia, and the headlights have been updated. It also has a smoother body design, and more streamlined body.

On the inside, which is considered to be even nicer than the outside, hard as that is to believe, two new trim choices have been added for the buyer’s choice: a Figured Ashwood and a Dark Ash Wood. Both of these are beautiful style choices that were added for more options. The 17-inch touch screen acts as the main feature of the cockpit and is easily accessible and easy to use. When making use of this feature, you can get to everything from the navigation system to the WiFi.

That’s not to mention the 7 years of updated navigation and free maps that you’ll get. Tesla’s Autopilot is at the top of the list of nearly endless features that you get access to when buying this vehicle. The Autopilot makes it easy to access the hands-free driving and parking. Of course, you’re legally bound to be ready and able to take over driving instantly at any point.

The Autopilot also has a summon feature which makes it easy for you to press a button and summon your car to you. The 2017 model also comes with an upgraded 48-amp onboard charger. This will allow you to charge your car faster from a 240-volt power outlet. The new HEPA air filtration system is much better than traditional air filtrations and more efficiently removes pollution and toxins from the air. Now Tesla offers an 8 year or unlimited miles battery warranty as well as the vehicles 4 year or 50,000 miles warranty. Though the Model S 100D is a bit slower than the P100D, it has much more range than any other Tesla that exists.

It gets 335 miles of range due to it’s 100 kWh battery. Using a supercharger for 30 minutes will get the Model S 167 miles of range. If you’re at home, though, you can use a Level 1 power source to get 21 miles per hour or a Level 2 to get 50 miles per hour of range. The top speed of the Model S 100D is 155. It has it’s 386 kW electric motor to thank for this. The 317lb-ft of torque is responsible for the vehicles ability to go from 0 to 60 in 4.1 seconds.
