Teslas Model S story
Tesla’s Model S
With the new changes to Tesla’s auto companies Model S there will be a huge drop in production. Tesla would have delivered 35,000 Model S vehicles this year. Now, they will be coming up 2,000 short.
Tesla is the first automobile company that makes and sells 100 percent electric cars. The Model S is available on the market now and is one of the fastest stock automobiles. The Model S goes 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds. This beats out the Lamborghini Murcielago, 0-60 mph 3.5, and the Diablo, 2008 Lamborghini Reventon 0-60 mph 3.3 for example.
Tesla hasn’t had any TV advertisements, or additional advertisement since release and their sales are still very high and demand is excelled production. This is a problem with this year’s new Model X because the changes are necessary and important but they will hamper a lot of production making Tesla loose over 142.14 million dollars in potential revenue.
Company C.E.O Elon Musk stated that “Demand is not our issue. Production is our issue…” With this being said Tesla has decided to push back the release of the Model X until the third quarter of 2015.
The improvements build on the company’s current Model S, for better traction, more driving range and automated features. Tesla is adding semi-automatic driving features to its cars they allow owners to leave some of the driving to the car’s on-board computers. It will be able to park itself and, when on private property, an owner will be able to summon the car.
