Tesla is accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable transportation and electricity consumption by designing and manufacturing electric vehicles and energy storage systems. Based in California, Tesla employs more than 13,000 people across four continents, and manufactures cars at the factory in Fremont, California.
Tesla is currently constructing the Gigafactory 1–the world’s largest lithium ion battery factory–in Sparks, Nevada. There Tesla produces the Powerwall, a residential battery pack, as well as the commercial and utility-grade Powerpack storage systems. Powerpack is designed to help reduce electricity costs, smooth electricity consumption and create a more resilient electricity grid.
Tesla currently produces two premium EVs–Model S and Model X–engineered from the ground up to be the world’s best car and SUV. Both vehicles come with free road trip access to more than 400 Tesla Supercharger stations—the world’s fastest EV charging technology. Model 3, the third generation EV, is currently under development.
