New Tesla Pictures
Even though it’s already one of the best-selling electric vehicles in the country, spotting a Tesla Model S outside of our gallery of new Tesla photos is no sure thing in many parts of the United States. It’s a shame, too, since Tesla’s original designs are about as far advanced as the company’s electric-propulsion systems, which can provide an EPA-certified all-electric driving range of hundreds of miles on a single charge.
Now, just to be clear, the Tesla Roadster owed its appearance directly to the Lotus Elise, but with the launch of the Model S, the company took matters into its own hands under the aegis of Franz von Holzhausen. The results have been striking, with Tesla products showing off cabins with massive 17-inch touchscreens, along with exteriors boasting sleek and streamlined sheet metal. Per Tesla’s chief designer: “Model S epitomizes efficiency, embodying the grace and performance of a world-class athlete. Its sculpted form expresses a constant state of speed and motion.”
You can decide for yourself after looking over the latest new Tesla pictures, and also keep your eye out for more as the company gears up to bring its sophisticated technologies to other segments of the marketplace—and perhaps to other marketplaces, too.
After all, company founder Elon Musk—unseen in our new Tesla pictures—also is a key player in the rapidly growing private space-travel industry as well as the visionary behind the “hyperloop” rapid-transit concept that would, in theory, take passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in about half an hour.
