Tesla Motors has nothing to do with the descendants of Nikola Tesla.
Daimler, Ag of Mercedes and Maybach fame recently bought a 10% stake in Tesla worth at least $30 Mill. Daimler will construct a factory to build the
upcoming 2011 Model S Sedan, a $60,000 sedan using the same electric system as the Roadster. Daimler to also offer it's 123 yrs of auto knowhow into
perfecting the body. Tesla to provide smart with the battery so it can be applied to the bodies of the 2008-present smart fortwo. As more get sold the
Roadster will definately come down in price.
The big three along with the petrol industry killed the electric car in 1997. The former GM EV1 was to be the launchpad. If they would've kept it GM
right now it is beleived would've been miles ahead of everyone, instead of trying to play catch up. The 2011 Chevrolet Volt would've been the 3rd
gen of the EV1 and not the first gen.
In 2003 a long rumoured conspiracy was confirmed and uncovered, 1933 John D. Rockerfeller of Standard Oil, (the firm that became Esso and who we know
now as ExxonMobil) and Henry Ford, Sr. (CEO, Charman, Founder, Pres Ford Motor Company) got together and worked to keep the world on oil hence why the
original electrics from between 1889 - 1933 went away shortly afterwards.
In 2002 Texaco was discovered to be putting additives in their gas so that it would maliciously and intentionally destroy and damage car engines so
that people would be forced to pay money to get thier car fixed unessicarily.
Big Oil was told in 2006 that it was "to either get with the program or get left behind".
Tesla Motors was founded in order to begin the push away from gasoline powered transit.
The following companies are working on implementation if non petrol powered transit :
Sportscars-Supercars - Ferrari, Aston-Martin, Porsche, Lamborghini
Passenger cars - Honda, Toyota, Nissan, GM, Ford, Toyota
Tractor trailers - Peterbilt, Kenworth, International, Pierce, DAF
Commercial buses - Iveco, MCI, International
Commercial planes - Boeing, McDonnell-Douglas, Lockheed Martin, Airbus
Battery companies for electric vehicle applications - Duracell, AC Delco, Die Hard, Sears, Energizer, Eveready,
In short there will be no new gas powered transit produced effective 2030.
Also you should expect to se a reduction in petrol filling stations by at least 75% during this same time span. Battery replacement houses to replace
half of the current gas stations. Go there, they remove your old battery, take the old one place into the charger, take a fully charged one out and
install in your car. Expect the first stations to launch by 2011.
