"Our sales strategy is very different from the rest of the automotive industry -- we put our stores in high foot-traffic locations so we can tell as many people as possible about Tesla's incredible cars," says
Model S was designed from the ground up as an electric car. Engineered for performance, it offers a premium ride, great handling and accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in as little as 4.4 seconds. With seating for five adults and two children in optional rear-facing seats, plus ample cargo space, Model S blends smart design with cutting-edge technology. The 17" in-dash touchscreen with wireless capabilities allows for streaming radio, navigation and web browsing. Model S is offered with three battery pack options to suit a variety of drivers' needs, and can be recharged using any conventional outlet. Tesla has more than 10,000 reservations for Model S worldwide.
Tesla's attention to a high quality customer experience extends to vehicle service. Tesla owners can service their cars at one of Tesla's regional service centers. In addition, Tesla Rangers travel from service hubs to perform annual inspections, firmware upgrades and other maintenance at customers' homes or offices.
Tesla's goal is to accelerate the world's transition to electric mobility.
