It’s becoming increasingly clear that the future of the planet depends
on how well we are able to rein in our energy usage, and vehicle manufacturers
have a critical role to play in that effort. Since its founding in 2003,
Tesla Motors has taken the initiative in pushing smart energy and energy-efficient
vehicles. These are some of the company’s most notable sustainable
Electric cars. In the United States, the name Tesla is all but synonymous with the electric
car. Tesla produced the first electric sports car, the Tesla Roadster,
from 2008 to 2012; an updated car is expected by 2019. In 2012, Tesla
introduced the Model S, which went on to become the world’s most
popular plug-in electric car. The company’s long-term goal is to
make electric cars as accessible and affordable for most people as gasoline-powered cars.
Battery technology. One of Tesla’s major breakthroughs has come in the field of battery
production. Tesla uses battery packs in its electric cars that rely on
lithium-ion cells to provide an impressive amount of energy, allowing
the cars to drive further without needing to recharge. These batteries
are also perhaps the most cost-effective batteries available for electric cars.
Solar roofs. Tesla’s latest project promises to be one of its most revolutionary
yet: Solar roof panels that cost less than ordinary roof shingles. According
to Tesla founder Elon Musk, the roof panels will be both cheaper to make
and cheaper to transport than traditional tiles. This could be a critical
step toward making solar power a universally accessible alternative energy source.
