Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. Since Tesla was founded in 2003, Tesla has broken new barriers in developing high-performance automobiles that are not only the world’s best and highest-selling pure electric vehicles—with long range and absolutely no tailpipe emissions—but also the safest, highest-rated cars on the road in the world. Beyond the flagship Model S sedan and the falcon-winged door Model X sports utility vehicle, they also offer a smaller, simpler and more affordable mid-sized sedan, Model 3, which Tesla expects will truly propel electric vehicles into the mainstream.

In addition, with the acquisition of SolarCity, Tesla now offers a full suite of energy products that incorporates solar, storage, and grid services. As the world’s only fully integrated sustainable energy company, Tesla is at the vanguard of the world’s inevitable shift towards a sustainable energy platform. Tesla recently announced plans for its next Gigafactory which will be located near the city of Berlin and build the new Model Y for Europe.
