Today, electric car enthusiasts all around the world are awaiting a series of Tesla’s enlisted electric cars models that are planned for release in the upcoming few years. These include the Tesla Roadster 2020, the all-electric Class 8 semi-trailer truck, a Cybertruck and an electric four-wheel all-terrain vehicle, Cyberquad, to demonstrate the loading capacity of the Cybertruck’s bed. Although the makers received few negative feedbacks on the latter two model’s prototype, it will be interesting to witness the implemented changes in their structure and design for safety and other regulatory compliance. In a recent tweet by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, he hints towards a redesigned model of the Cybertruck – “maybe in a month or so.”

While there is still time as we wait for these upcoming models for the user’s reviews after the final product release, it would be fun to talk about a series of interesting facts about the company’s electric cars production.

Fun-Facts About Tesla:

Tesla stands for Tera electron volt Energy Superconducting Linear Accelerator, and the company’s name is a homage to the Serbian American engineer and inventor, Nikola Tesla, who invented the induction motor and alternating-current (AC) power transmission.

Tesla, Inc. was set up way back in the year 2003 (formerly Tesla Motors, Inc.) and while Elon Musk represents the face of the company, he is not one of the actual founders. Tesla Motors, Inc. was founded by engineers and investors Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning, having a vision of building “a car manufacturer that is also a technology company”, with its core technologies as “the battery, the computer software, and the proprietary motor”. Elon Musk then entered Tesla with the vision towards building a solar electric economy and is now the Co-founder and CEO of Tesla.

9 Fun Facts About Tesla Electric Cars

    1. Open source patents

Following the company’s mission statement – “Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy”, Tesla has opened all of its several patents. With this step, now, companies can use Tesla’s design and features. According to a blog from the company’s website, Elon Musk writes that the company has removed its several patent rights and made it open to the public for the advancement of electric vehicle technology.

    1. Software Update

Tesla cars bear a resemblance to your daily devices like laptops and mobile phones. These electric vehicles can get into sleep mode just like your laptop and come with regular software updates like your cell phones.

    1. Fastest Speed Electric Vehicle Record

The Tesla Roadster 2020 holds the record for the fastest electric car in the world, “with record-setting acceleration, range, and performance.” This car can cover from 0-60 mph in a time of 1.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds, a complete quarter-mile sprint in 8.9sec and a top speed of over 250 mph. 

    1. Safest Car Record

Time and again, Tesla cars have proven to be among the safest vehicles on the road. The Tesla  Model S and Model X hold previous records with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on having the lowest and second-lowest injury probabilities, and the Model 3 holds the record for being the safest car ever built.

On achieving a “good” performance in all six IIHS crash tests, the  Insurance Institute for Highway Safety honoured The Tesla Model 3 with the 2019 Top Safety Pick+ award. 

    1. Air filter standards  

Whoever thought that one day we would have a “green” sports vehicle? The Tesla electric vehicles maintain air quality standards with their HEPA filtration system. This purifying system installed in the electric vehicles is proficient in baring the outside polluted air (containing bacteria, pollens etc.) from entering the cabin and regularly cleansing the air inside the car to eliminate all traces of the pollutants.  

    1. Protection from biowarfare

The Tesla Model X has a prepared defensive mechanism to keep the electric vehicle, its passengers safe for biowarfare. The Model S also has a similar feature that keeps itself filtered off of viruses, bacteria and other allergens present in the air.

    1. Largest Dashboard Screen 

With the absence of physical dials behind the steering wheels, the Tesla electric cars come with the largest infotainment and control screens that make for the entire dashboard console and control unit.

    1. On the “VIP” list   

The Tesla Model 3 pricing is based on the idea of Tesla owners having a vision that the electric cars be available for all. The Tesla Model 3 available in three different versions, is priced at an average of 140,000 AED in the UAE.

    1. Saving on regular replacement

The regenerative braking mechanism of the Tesla cars generates electricity, driving power and recharging the battery by turning the electric motor. The other parts of the vehicle do not need regular replacements or checks for a battery-electric car requiring minimal maintenance. Unlike other vehicles, with Tesla, you would be required to have the periodic checks on replacement needs for six parts only – four wheels and the two wiper blades.
