What do you know about Tesla cars ?
The basis of Tesla's success are two engineers, Mark Tarpenning and Martin Eberhard. The implementation of the project was motivated by their personal ideas. Mark was one of the environmentalists. And Martin always dreamed of a sports car that does not consume a single liter of fuel per 8 kilometers.
Interesting facts about electric cars
Electric cars are sold in the US by the hundreds of thousands. Even though these “green cars” are becoming increasingly popular in developed countries, many people in our country are not aware of them. Today we present to our page subscribers a few facts about electric cars.
History of the emergence and use of electric vehicles.
In the 70s, at the height of the global energy crisis, interest in alternative energy sources increased. Research in this area has been active. But when the crisis passed, everyone conveniently forgot about it.

The idea of creating a car with an electric motor arose long before the appearance of the first car with an internal combustion engine. Because Nikola Tesla’s working documents also contained drawings of a car running on an electric motor.

But because he was ahead of his time, the technology was not yet advanced enough to realize his idea.

For many years, only environmentalists were proponents of electric vehicles. Because electric cars like golf carts couldn't compete with conventional gasoline-powered cars in many ways.

Mark and Martin, who met in California in the 1990s at a meeting organized by their mutual friend Greg Rand, were like two sitcom characters: the chatty and enthusiastic Eberhard and the modest Tarpen, who made up for each other's shortcomings. Soon they begin to work together.

In the spring of 1997, Eberhard and Tarpenning founded NuovoMedia and launched their Rocket eBook. They quickly caught the wave of success and earned US$187 million.

By 2004, having purchased PayPal and become a millionaire, Musk founded his own company, SpaceX. Eberhard and another “father” of Tesla Motors, Ian Wright, meet with Elon Musk in Los Angeles, at the SpaceX headquarters.

There were several disagreements about the upcoming project, and Musk was initially very hesitant to invest. However, in some ways, the engineers of Musk and Tesla were united: an electric car must be powerful, beautiful, not just good, but a real technical achievement and finally “bury” gasoline. Having reached a compromise with Tarpenning, Musk makes an initial investment of $7.5 million in Tesla Motors.

Interestingly, most people today who know even a little about Tesla Motors only know Elon Musk as its founder. However, we should not forget about the idea and the first founders of the company, Mark Tarpenning and Martin Eberhard.
1. An electric car is more expensive than its gasoline counterpart. For example, the cheapest electric car on the market, the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive, costs twice as much as the gas-guzzling ForTwo. The electric Nissan Leaf costs $28,000, while the same-sized Nissan Sentra can be purchased for about $16,000.

2. You don't spend money on fuel. If an American driver buys 1 liter of gasoline for $0.94, the average car uses 9.4 liters of gasoline per 100 km, costing the driver approximately $9. Driving 100 km in an electric car costs from 0.45 to 3.9 dollars, taking into account the tariff in the States.

3. Electric cars have motors. When people think of an electric car, they imagine an electrical cable being pulled out of the car and plugged into an outlet. But besides batteries, there are cars with engines. The Chevrolet Volt has both an electric motor and a combustion engine, and Ford, Honda and Toyota are following suit.

4. An electric car is comfortable to drive. The electric car is not stuck at the level of a conventional golf cart; the drive mechanisms rotate quickly and silently. No engine vibration. Gets smooth acceleration and stopping.
The car model shown in this photo appeared back in the 19th century. In the era of steam engines, the creation of relatively compact vehicles driven by an electric motor came to the fore.
However, the potential of electric vehicles is not fully realized due to the shortcomings of this car. An electric car is not designed for long journeys and has almost always caused difficulties due to the need to charge.

In the 70s, at the height of the global energy crisis, interest in alternative energy sources increased. Research in this area has been active. But when the crisis passed, everyone conveniently forgot about it.

About electric cars again in the nineties and two thousand years, when the pollution of the largest cities in the world reached its peak (and still does).
The initiator of the alliance is the Chinese government. Founded in January, the China All-Solid State Battery Collaborative Innovation Platform (CASIP) aims to develop, manufacture, and supply chain competitive solid-state batteries by 2030.

The alliance even brings together competitors - it includes battery manufacturers CATL, CALB, EVE Energy, SVOLT, Gotion High-Tech and BYD's battery subsidiary FinDreams Battery. There are also several state-owned automakers and private companies BYD and Nio. Other stakeholders include representatives from government and academia. On the government side, special mention is made of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the State Council Asset Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) and the National Energy Administration. The scientific part is carried out by government research institutes such as the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is especially noted that the list of CASIP members also includes influential government funds.
