TESLA - Everything You Need to Know | Up to SpeedFeb 27, 2020
Electric cars used to mean slow, boxy, weird-looking driving, no funny monstrosities blowing off the road in a strong wind, but not anymore. a CEO who is so eccentric and enigmatic that he could easily be a bond villain but he is not because he has given us the future of cars ladies and gentlemen boys and girls this is all you
knowto get up to
teslathis it might came as a surprise to many of you but elon musk didn't found
teslano it was magic hangout mates mark eberhard and mark terpening who founded tesla in the sleepy northern california town of melno park these guys were veterans too from Silicon Valley who combined their experiences and became very successful with one of the first e-reader companies that produced the Rocket e-book, the forerunner of the Kindle, one of their areas of expertise was the small power plants that powered their fake little book s lithium ion batteries urban heart was also freshly divorced and ready to buy a sports car like any other man 40 year old recently divorced in the world was looking at what was available but began to think about its impact must have overlooked the modest adorable miata because it was powered by a little car called ac propulsion t-zero ac propulsion is a small company in san dimas california san dimas high school football rules i had a drink last night herba heart headed over to see what they were doing 90s looking little yellow was all about it after one time the guy got hooked eberhard quickly became an investor in ac propulsion he sought to make it a legit automaker not just a little boutique in the r d shop oh my gosh this little yellow pocket rocket screams like the millennium falcon why none of the major car companies has created one? st 100 years lead-acid batteries but mark and martin knew a thing or two about a thing called lithium ion batteries that's what made eberhard and tarponing start their own company tesla motors named after nicholas tesla the inventor of lightning lightning lightning lightning lightning lightning the like button hit the subscribe button to make sure you don't miss any of our lightning content we make a lot of it back in the story on april 23, 2003 they made it official like all new ones do companies today bought the domain name tesla motors that cam also realized that the auto industry had become a supplier industry ford does not make every little part that goes in their cars many of the parts like windshield hoses wires springs wheels all come from other places these guys knew a thing or two about this from their experience in Silicon Valley with this With crucial aspect in mind, they were excited to cobble together a simple little sports car that emitted no co2 and nox but instead emitted ha-a-ha-ha and weeeeeee e e set out to find a chassis they could drop a big electric motor and a bunch of batteries and they went with lotus, you
knowbecause they have a great reputation in electric with lotus.
Voila, Tesla also struck a license agreement with AC drive to use their motor and controller for the powertrain. They were able to get financing from several small sources, but they
needed a big whale to finish it and give them the green light at the end of April. 2004 one of his friends from Silicon Valley who really liked cars got pretty into it and gleefully chipped in a few million clams and that guy's name was uh steve jobs not a word to yankovic no his name was elon musk when tesla was founded in 2003 elon had just sold his silicon valley superstar paypal with musk now on board and plenty of cash in the bank they hired ian wright as their reducer a kiwi with a healthy resume of building race cars in 20 04 tesla's first test mule was created the roadster it was essentially a lotus elise but with an electric motor, batteries and various other technical bits running different kinds of software to tie
everythingtogether it worked and they were excited their new mule functional also helped. they secured more funding to move forward a cool 13 grand show me the money july 2006 the official launch party for the tesla roadster was held at the santa monica airport in beautiful mar vista california that's my neighborhood please don't come At my tesla house they filled the first 100 pre-orders at 100,000 and off to the races, environmental nerds and even car nerds rejoiced at the exciting new sports car and everyone was completely excited for its initial debut scheduled for some time later that same year in 2006. but there were some budding heads about the design elements, the ergonomics, the use of space, all these things and the debut kept going back and back and back, remember most of these. the cars were already paid for we're not even talking about offering stuff to the general public but the ship needed to be steered so elon musk took over as ceo and became the face of the startup and when the tesla The roadster finally debuted in 2008, the hype continued on a trajectory similar to the roadster's own Turk's Curve just over 2400 sold worldwide between 2008 and 2012.
The motor is a 4 pole 3 phase induction electric motor with a max output of 248 hertz pers its max turk is 200 lb-ft and it fires up right out of the box and stays maxed out until 6,000rpm later on its production torque was increased to 295 lb-ft for even more insane acceleration reaching 60 mph in under 4 seconds and doing the quarter mile in just over 12.5 in just over 12.5 seconds the movie that launched all of this called for a 10 second car and this is almost 10 a car than 10 seconds is their first car after an expensive roadster, it was time for a luxury competition or in 2012, tesla began making the car that would boldly announce to the world that they had arrived enter the tesla model s the model s has a large interior and comfortable with good amenities and is controlled by a big old fashioned touch screen on the front dash that looks like an ipad it's beautiful because the engine and batteries are low and out of the way the interior is very roomy it's electric so no vibrations from the engine and power delivery is instantaneous and consistent with the option to add factory ridiculous mode this upgraded 588 horsepower 920 pound-feet beast launches to 60 miles per hour in just 2.3 seconds 2.3 seconds and, thanks to the Regenerative braking system, when you slow down, it can recover some of the electricity that accelerated you in the first place.
This thing is a spaceship for the road while the Model S underwent various power upgrades, drivetrain upgrades, and facelifts in April 2016. It's still the same generation, there are usually enough upgrades and changes. To a car, most OEMs just came out with a new generation, a vehicle, a new car, have you seen the new Mustang? uh it kind of looks like the old mustang but newer yeah cool that's what we're used to but tesla tesla they don't. To do that they set their generations apart by making them a different vehicle. Production jumped from 15 or more cars a week in 2010 to nearly 1,000 a week in 2015.
So Tesla decided it was time for its second-generation vehicle, remember Tesla's plan is to get started. from the top down, first a sports car, then a luxury sedan, and then the next step is of course, well, the next one would be an entry-level consumer car that most wealthy families could afford with an MSRP in the thirty thousand and fifty thousand dollars you're killing. Today dude you're killing it, you're absolutely destroying the Tesla Model X SUV debuted in early 2015. While the Model X shares 30 of the same parts as the Model S, it doesn't hit the same range because I'm a fat guy with 5531 lips that's 1000 more lives than the rusty 1990 ford f-250 my friend cameron had in high school even with all those corn stalks stuck under the grill cameron loved to drive through the cornfields despite his fat boy status. the model x p100d with moon mode has amazing power it's a crossover that jumps to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds it matches the zero to 60 of a fucking ferrari 488 which you can win if you click this link here and the design was something.
Also elon has had quite a few great cores. His first car was a 1978 BMW 320i that he drove until a wheel literally fell off. He even said daily. Are you ready for this? he totaled i'm fine i'm fine but the car that most directly influenced an actual tesla design is an audi q7 that musk currently owns and then you know we have things like that say the audi q7 that's not bad so he wanted to do a car with doors that can be opened. It's in tight quarters with access to the third row seats without folding the second row seats forward.
Enter the falcon doors. The X model was so anticipated that it received 30,000 pre-orders before production production of the X went on sale. Model X was slow to get going as supply issues arose once again Delivery started with just 204 units in Q4 2015. Elon was freaking out with rumors of mismanaged plants and poor build quality Musk brought in analysts and experts with stellar careers from the likes of ford GM and everyone else to change operations, he kept what worked, scrapped what didn't and the model x started working but just like my super saiyan haircut neither Even though it wasn't its final form, it was about to go to the Model 3, the third mass-market car in Tesla's lineup.
After its announcement, the Model 3 accumulated 325,000 reservations in a week, it was intended as a lighter, smaller and more attainable vehicle and this shows in its equipment since its day, but in July 2017 the sedan of a single-engine rear-wheel drive has increased production to a maximum of 5,000 cars per week, which is a lot of batteries driving them. Toyota corolla pricing starts around 42k with some higher level models coming in at around 60. What about its horsepower? Well not bad, neither do all three jump to 60 in 5.6 and the top tier all wheel drive performance one gets there in 3.3 seconds it has. 450 horsepower 470 pound-feet of torque in fact the new amazing change is to find a total tesla and modify your favorite little chassis s3s s2000 and even this 1981 honda accord they have become incredible beasts that hit 60 without much peep electric cars are not only the future of commuting but remember the words of big brother it's the future of tuning so what's next for tesla? the new roadster which is scheduled for production in 2020 tesla is taking all the research development opment safety and so on and so on and they are offering a new version of the roadster fold the roadster 2020 clear vision talking about 2020 you are guaranteed to lose your vision 2020 when you step on the madness pedal those mad men claim the 2020 roadster will hit 60 mph in 1.9 seconds and a hundred in 4.2 that's as fast as an F1 car unlike the original the new roadster doesn't It will ride on another guy's chassis like Nolan does, it will be completely a Tesla. developed hypercar it's unbelievably beautiful it's like the most brilliant Buffett horse I've ever seen the car is expected to cost around 200 000 bones but still could be a great value compared to the other blazing fast vehicles which are on the market today also launched one in the damn space elon himself stated that it could potentially come with a feature called the spacex option pack this would add about 10 cold gas thrusters to improve maneuverability these rocket sounding thrusters sci fi they could imp rove downforce if they aim for corners if they aim for top
speedif they shoot backwards and brake if they shoot forward whats smoking in less than two decades tesla went from making cute little lotus things to being a complete disruptor of fully fledged in the automotive industry and now they are about to hit 60 miles per hour in less than two seconds their ena crazy but so does
