1 TESLA EV BATTERY TECHNOLOGY
By: Arielle Solheim

2 BACKGROUND Founded by Elon Musk (Paypal), Martin Eberhard, Mark Tarpenning, JB Straubel, and Ian Wright Tesla “Roadster” Nikola Tesla AC Propulsion T-Zero

3 EV BATTERY TECHNOLOGY Laptop batteries Lithium-ion
Nickel Metal Hydride batteries normally used in hybrid cars Battery has capacity of 56kWh—high density makes the battery last longer Problem with Lithium-ion batteries Battery pack heater

4 THE ROADSTER: PRICES & MODELS
Starting price: $109,000 The Roadster Sport price: $128,500 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds Driving range of 245 miles

5 Motor Acceleration Roadster Roadster Sport Torque
273 lb-fit at 0-5,400 rpm 295 lb-ft at 0-5,100 rpm Horsepower 302 hp at 5,000-6,000 rpm 299 at 4,400-6,000 rpm Max rpm 14,000 rpm Acceleration Roadster Roadster Sport Top Speed 125 mph 0 to 60 mph 3.9 seconds 3.7 seconds

6 Model S Performance goes 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds
THE MODEL S Starting price of $62,400 Active air suspension 0 to 60 in 5.4 seconds Model S Performance goes 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds

7 FEATURES DOOR HANDLES When not in use, the handles retract into the body. When you approach the car with the key, the handles slide out and unlatch TOUCH-SCREEN 17” touch-screen dashboard with Wi-Fi Tracks your efficiency on the screen so you can know how far you can go GLASS PANORAMIC ROOF UV and infrared blocking safety glass windows models/features

8 BATTERY OPTIONS

9 THE MODEL X Crossover sport utility vehicle
0-60 mph in under 5 seconds Optional dual motor all-wheel drive Deliveries will begin in 2014

10 CHARGING 3.5 hours from empty to full (using a high power wall connector at 240 volts and 70 amps) Mobile Charging High Power Charging

11 How do you take a road trip?
How far can you go? A 60 kWh battery supplies 232 miles per charge The largest battery supplies 300 miles per charge How do you take a road trip? PUBLIC STATION J1772 Adapter
 240 VOLT OUTLET Mobile Connector SUPERCHARGER NETWORK

12 ADVANTAGES Efficiency No more oil changes or smog checks
$7,500 Federal Tax Credit Free parking HOV lane access Electricity sources: nuclear power, natural gas, hydroelectric, coal and oil Gas has one primary source

13 MITSUBISHI I-MIEV FORD FOCUS ELECTRIC CHEVY VOLT NISSAN LEAF

14 Safety recalls Time to recharge Price DISADVANTAGES

15 SIGNIFICANCE OF TESLA MOTORS
Tesla Motors hasn’t been around for very long, but their EV battery technology is considered to be the best Tesla helped advance alternative fuel technology
