100th Swiss Tesla Roadster Hits the Road

Swiss architect demonstrates his commitment to a sustainable future

ZÚRICH – Today Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) delivers the 100th Roadster in Switzerland to its new owner Martin Meier just four months after the first anniversary of the opening of Tesla’s Zurich Store. The Swiss architect received the keys of his Obsidian Black electric Roadster from George Blankenship, Tesla’s Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Ownership Experience.

‘The main reason I bought the Roadster is that I don’t want to explain to my young daughter why I didn’t do more for the environment,’ said Meier, who bought the Roadster wîth his business partner. ‘From now on, I’ll drive entirely emissions-free wîth electric power derived from the river next to my house. It feels great to be completely independent of the oil .’

Switzerland has the highest per capita Tesla ownership of any country. ‘The fact that Switzerland has embraced the Roadster makes complete sense. Swiss consumers are thought leaders who seek out cutting edge technology as well as environmentally-responsible solutions,’ explains Blankenship. ‘The Roadster, a revolutionary high-performance sports car wîth zero emissions that can be charged completely wîth renewable energy, offers all of this, and more.’

The Roadster accelerates faster than most supercars yet produces no emissions. It consumes no petroleum and plugs into conventional sockets – in owners’ garages or offices, hotels, parking decks or at a growing number of charging stations throughout Switzerland. Several Swiss customers charge their Roadsters on 100 percent solar power from their photovoltaic panels.

Únlike petrol-powered vehicles, the single-speed Roadster does not require oxygen and therefore does not lose efficiency at altitude. Roadster owners can drive wîth utmost confidence on Alpine passes, enjoying the car’s legendary torque without lag or downshifting. Regenerative braking allows the Roadster to recover energy on downhill stretches.

Sophisticated power management software means the Roadster’s revolutionary traction control is almost instantaneous.

Tesla Roadster to be First Electric Car to Set Time on Hill Climb at Goodwood Festival of Speed

LONDON — Electric carmaker Tesla Motors, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) today announced that the Tesla Roadster will be the first production electric car to record a time in the prestigious Hill Climb event at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, held at Goodwood Estate, Chichester, West Sussex. The car’s participation in this event marks yet another historic ‘first’ for the Tesla Roadster.

Goodwood Festival of Speed is the largest car culture festival in the world, wîth a distinctive atmosphere of luxury and excitement pervading its celebration of historic and contemporary motorsport. The Hill Climb event is a highlight of the Festival, combining a diverse and authentic array of cars and motorbikes wîth a star-studded line-up of drivers. Only the most significant cars in the history of international motorsport are invited to participate in the Hill Climb, which takes place on the immaculate grounds of Goodwood House.

The Tesla Roadster, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, and traveling over 200 miles on a single charge, sets a high bar for both zero-emissions vehicles and supercars, proving that drivers need not compromise on performance or design to go electric.

‘Tesla is deeply honoured that the Roadster is the first production electric car invited to set a time in the Hill Climb,’ said Gian Avignone, Tesla’s Country Manager for ÚK and Ireland. ‘The Roadster’s performance is sure to bring a new dimension to this year’s Festival.’

Goodwood Festival of Speed runs from Thursday, June 30 through Sunday, July 3. On Friday and Saturday, the Roadster will engage in two Hill Climb practice sessions, wîth the final two timed runs on Sunday. A 2011 Roadster Sport also will be shown in the Supercar Run each day at approximately 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Tesla unveils high power charging network from Lands End to John o’Groats

Tesla Roadster to be the first electric car to traverse Great Britain on historic drive

Electric carmaker Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) announced today that it has partnered wîth ÚK hotels and tourist destinations to install a high power charging network, comprised of ten charge stations throughout Great Britain.

Each charge station is privately owned and available for public use, either provided free or for a nominal fee. The network is the result of a grass-roots effort by Roadster drivers and forward-thinking hotels and resorts (see list below). Now Roadster owners can enjoy their cars’ breathtaking acceleration and 212 mile range as they tour Great Britain, and conveniently recharge while having a meal, using leisure facilities, or indulging in an overnight stay. Tesla’s High Power Connector (HPC) delivers a whopping 70 amps of electricity, fully charging an empty battery in less than three hours, and ‘topping off’ a partially-charged battery in a fraction of that time.

Complimenting the HPC network, Zero Carbon World, a charity dedicated to creating a clean energy future, has installed medium power connectors (MPCs), delivering 32 amps, at several sites throughout Britain. Tesla’s forthcoming Model S luxury saloon also can charge on the entire network.

An historic drive, from John o’Groats on Scotland’s northeast tip, to Land’s End on the southwest English coast, will combine the Roadster’s long range wîth the network’s high power charging. On Saturday, May 21, Kevin Sharpe, founder of Zero Carbon World, will set off from John o’Groats in his electric blue Tesla Roadster along wîth EV expert David Peilow, both taking turns at the wheel. They expect to reach Lands End on Sunday, wîth stops to charge up using Tesla HPCs along the way.

‘The long range of Tesla vehicles and fast charging at popular destinations via Tesla’s HPC make convenient, emissions-free driving throughout Britain a reality,’ said Gian Avignone, Tesla’s Country Manager for ÚK and Ireland.
