Topic - Tesla Motors

Tesla Motors Inc. is a Silicon Valley-based company that engages in the design, manufacture, and sale of electric vehicles (EVs) and electric vehicle powertrain components. It is currently the only automaker building and selling highway-capable EVs in serial production (as opposed to prototype or evaluation fleet production) in North America or Europe. According to recent paperwork filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, Tesla produces at least 15 cars per week — mostly custom-ordered vehicles manufactured to owners' specifications. - Source: Wikipedia
