My real estate clients LOVE looking at homes in my new Tesla. Viewing homes all day can be tiring, but after a thoroughly enjoyable ride in my Tesla, even an all-day real estate outing is relaxing and fun!
Here are some interesting highlights about this electric car:
The Tesla Model S is so advanced it sets the new standard for premium performance. At the heart of the vehicle is the proven Tesla powertrain, delivering both unprecedented range and a thrilling drive experience.
With a rigid body structure, nearly 50/50 weight distribution and a remarkably low center of gravity, Model S offers the responsiveness and agility expected from the world’s best sports cars while providing the ride quality of a sedan.
THE 21ST CENTURY POWER TRAIN
Tesla’s advanced electric powertrain delivers exhilarating performance. Unlike the internal combustion engine with hundreds of moving pieces that spark, pump, belch, and groan, the Tesla motor has only one moving piece: the rotor. As a result, Model S acceleration is instantaneous, like flipping a switch. Hit the accelerator. In 5.4 seconds, Model S is traveling 60 miles per hour, without hesitation and without a drop of gasoline.
NO TAILPIPE. ZERO EMISSIONS
With no tailpipe to spew harmful emissions, Tesla vehicles liberate their owners from the petroleum-burning paradigm. They are the only cars to get more efficient from the moment they’re first driven.Gasoline-powered vehicles and hybrids burn refined petroleum. Tesla vehicles can use electricity however it is produced, be it from coal, solar, hydro, geothermal, or wind power. As the grid shifts to increasingly efficient technologies, Tesla owners reap the efficiency benefits.
AIRBAGS: Model S is equipped with airbags throughout to keep the most precious cargo safe.
RIGID OCCUPANT CELL: High-strength steel is combined with aluminum to augment safety.
NO ENGINE: The front crumple zone is optimized for safety in ways not possible in conventional cars.
TRACTION AND STABILITY
Model S Traction Control is designed to ensure maximum contact between the road and the tires. Whether you are accelerating off the line, zooming along the winding roads of the Rockies or find yourself in a Gulf Coast rainstorm, Traction Control prevents loss of traction and maintains control. Stability Control reacts in moments of under-steer or over-steer by reducing torque and applying the brakes to individual wheels for enhanced control when cornering.
