Introduction

The Tesla Motors company is a producer of automobiles with unique qualities and it is a company with a vision to change the automotive industry completely. Their vehicles are entirely battery powered, producing no emissions. This in itself is not new, but what is a radical change is that Tesla has been able to produce a battery which can completely outperform traditional batteries.

Highlights

Tesla technology is completely revolutionary, using lithium ion batteries to achieve remarkable efficiency and performance figures that the competition is currently unable to match. The company envisions its super charger stations replacing petrol stations internationally as customers in Teslas can charge their batteries quickly.
The company currently produces one vehicle, the Model-S, which is a sedan shaped car, entirely battery powered, which is able to cover significantly larger distances than battery powered vehicles have before and produce significant performance.
The company is still in its formative years, but with some excellent sales figures internationally, is beginning to turn its first profit and the share price of the company has sky rocketed. 2013 is expected to prove to be a profitable year for the company and should signify the company moving out of its start up status into a major competitor.
