Tesla Motors is a manufacturer of electric automobiles and on July 19th, 2006 Tesla introduced the first ever Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) that did 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds and could travel over for 300 miles before having to recharge. Back in May of this year, Toyota announced they would be investing $50 million to develop two Toyota cars with the latest Tesla technology by 2012.
“Toyota and Tesla engineering teams have made a lot of progress in a short amount of time and it is exciting to start seeing some initial results,” Tesla Chief Technology Officer JB Straubel said in a statement.
