Tesla Alpha Model S

The 2012 Tesla Alpha S is a streamlined electric vehicle with the ultimate performance and features in mind. Improved from wind tunnel allowed the body design to be with heightened efficiency and The Tesla Model S is expected to other vehicles like the BMW and the Mercedes Benz E-Class. The will be offered with a 220, and 300 mile battery that can be topped off in around 45

Estimated cost is expected to run $50,000. A large navigation controls interior features as the radio, navigation, and HVAC Six piston Brembo brakes on the and 4 piston calipers in back are by 21 inch wheels.

The Alpha can achieve a 0-60 time in an 5.6 seconds, with a top speed of 120 Tesla took its aerodynamic seriously, even offering handles that retract to wind drag.

Model S. from the ground as an EV, is meticulously for superior aerodynamics, stability and crash safety, performance and Before Model S enters it will have been tested using both simulations and test vehicles. will complete two vehicle phases, Alpha and Beta.

The Alpha phase began in

While test driving the Alpha, Tesla Vehicle Graham Sutherland commented: The Alpha is amazingly agile for a car of its It has great handling balance and ride with communicative Just goes to show combining a low center of gravity a very stiff body can achieve.

The Alphas will be extensively in the coming months in all As each Alpha is built, the dynamics will evolve and

By designing a slim-line battery positioned below the floor and the motor and power electronics a compact module between the wheels, the Tesla engineering developed a car that truly Tesla’s proven powertrain. The integration is the key to exploiting the advantages of an car and creates new opportunities in safety and while maximizing interior

The battery pack is a lightweight, structure in its own right, but when to the state-of-the-art body structure, the is a platform with unsurpassed The Tesla Vehicle Platform efficiency, safety, and design not in an architecture conceived around the engine.


The expanded unveiled at the 2011 North International Auto Show, Model S at the Alpha phase and demonstrates Tesla’s vehicle prowess.

Before Model S production, characteristics such as stability and handling, crash performance, and range,will have thoroughly tested using computer simulations and prototype Tesla will complete two testing phases, Alpha and Alpha phase began in and has already excelled as the meticulous simulations predicted.

Quality is a and is designed-in from the outset. simulations aided in developing a product with modular and a built-in Quality Manufacturing using an assembly line at 20,000 units per year.


The streamlined Model S is a of unprecedented teamwork between and designers. Every millimeter of the has been evaluated using simulations and wind tunnel to produce second-to-none aerodynamic

The perfectly flat battery provides an ideal starting for all-important under-car airflow and is by a flat front under-tray and diffuser. The result is aerodynamic more commonly expected of the echelons of race cars. such as vortex generators and employed by other vehicles to fix design are unnecessary on Model S.

Air flows smoothly around S, enhancing efficiency and range. tunnel testing has demonstrated a drag coefficient, as Tesla simulations predicted.


To realize the benefits of its powertrain, Tesla employed a approach to vehicle architecture, packaging components throughout the The battery pack exemplifies approach: in addition to protecting the it contains, the pack performs additional roles.

When with the body structure, the contributes to the overall torsional providing an unparalleled stiffness-to-weight amongst production vehicles. The integration augments the strength of the cabin, endowing Model S superior safety. The pack underbelly and wheel well and lowers the center of gravity for handling.

The location of the battery below the floor also rapid interchangeability. The system is to recharge in 45 minutes. Model S be available with three options: 160, 230, and 300


Tesla has its learning from the Roadster’s road-tested technology into S. The powertrain comprises the battery motor, single-speed gear drive inverter, and control The system benefits from liquid temperature management.

The motor is nearly three as efficient as a gasoline engine, and Model S to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in than six seconds.

The motor and electronics are tightly integrated to within the rear sub-frame The packaging innovations result in usable, cabin space and a of gravity lower than is in combustion vehicles.


When the Tesla team asked, “what do we put the gasoline engine traditionally The answer was a second trunk. the motor integrated into the axle, Model S provides twice the storage space of vehicles in its class. The rear cavity is spacious enough to for rear-facing child seats.

are space-limiting compromises such as a gas catalytic converter, tailpipe, and


Model S provide drivers premium quality combined with handling. The Tesla-designed advanced systems were created to in harmony with the rigid and Tesla platform.

The double-wishbone, front suspension and multi-link are both lightweight, aluminum designs that optimize contact with the road. A engine forces a typical rack to hang below the which creates a feeling of when steering. Not so with S: the programmable electric power mounted in a rigid structure feedback from the road to the

The battery pack endows S with an exceptionally low center of enhancing stability and minimizing roll.

Both suspensions are assemblies. The rear module not only the sub-frame and suspension, but the gearbox, power electronics, and shafts. The complete assembly, an of Tesla’s aptitude for compact and package design, can be installed on the line as one module.


engineering Model S, Tesla on three tenets to increase enhanced aerodynamics, weight and decreased rolling resistance. benefits made aluminum a choice for the body and pack Extrusions, stampings, and castings combined to provide exceptional and strength.

Together, the body and pack work in harmony to efficiently the whole. In the event of collision, the frame protects occupants as zones soften and absorbs the of an impact. Without the obstructions a engine presents, the front of S can be truly optimized for crash

Model S is engineered with the to achieve 2012 five-star safety ratings.
