Tesla Automotive giants of the US automobile manufacturer founded in 2553 operating in manufacturing and selling electric vehicles and electric vehicle powertrain components. It has been known from the first launch “The Tesla Roadster” (Tesla Roadster) sports car models, then the electric cars called “Tesla Model S”; luxury sedan that uses electrical energy. Which are sent to the market price of 5-7 million baht in Thailand by December 2558.
Tesla Automotive Co., Ltd. announced that it will have Tesla Model S Model 85D and P90D on the Thai auto market with targeted selling unit as 8,000 to 10,000. The Super-powered pollution-free units are expected to leave the showroom by the end of 2016, with e-SuperCharging stations to be installed in nearly 120 gas stations countrywide, or every 200 km, by the same year. Tesla’s Model 85D and P90D optimal performance is powered by the Dual-Motor mechanism exclusively, without internal combustible help, thus, yields zero emissions from environmentally-safe guaranteed operations. The powertrain can cover as far as 480 km per charge, where zero to 100 KPM acceleration is 4.3 seconds for Model 85D and 2.4 seconds for Model P90D.
Dual Motor Model S is a categorical improvement on conventional all-wheel drive systems. With two motors, one in the front and one in the rear, Model S digitally and independently controls torque to the front and rear wheels. The result is unparalleled traction control in all conditions.Conventional all-wheel drive cars employ complex mechanical linkages to distribute power from a single engine to all four wheels. This sacrifices efficiency in favor of all-weather traction. In contrast, each Model S motor is lighter, smaller and more efficient than its rear wheel drive counterpart, providing both improved range and faster acceleration.
In addition, both models are equipped automatic car driving or an Autopilot system, using sonar to detect obstacles such as people or other cars on the road. As the system detects an obstructing object it automatically re-calculates the new route and distance for circumnavigation and then instantaneously executes necessary speed and lane changing, effectively. The radar system also determines precise route to the destination and checks traffic light statuses for proper stops and accelerations. Upon arrival, Autopilot can assist the driver with auto-parking as well, safely. Autopilot: Autopilot allows Model S to steer within a lane, change lanes with the simple tap of a turn signal, and manage speed by using active, traffic-aware cruise control. Digital control of motors, brakes, and steering helps avoid collisions from the front and sides, as well as preventing the car from wandering off the road. Model S can also scan for a parking space, alert you when one is available, and parallel park on command.
Automatic Steering with Traffic Aware Cruise Control: Active sensors combined with GPS and high resolution digital maps comprise a mutually reinforcing system that pilots Model S along the highway, staying within your lane, even in stop and go traffic. Real time feedback from the Tesla fleet ensures the system is continually learning and improving upon itself. Model S is designed from the ground up to be the safest car on the road, as proven by a 5-star rating in all categories of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash test. Much of its safety is owed to the unique electric drivetrain that sits beneath the car’s aluminum occupant cell in its own subframe. This unique positioning lowers the car’s center of gravity, which improves handling and minimizes rollover risk, and replaces the heavy engine block with impact absorbing boron steel rails.
In addition, Tesla also sells electric powertrain components of the vehicle as well. Including the production of lithium – ion batteries for the car manufacturing companies such as Daimler and Toyota, etc. Elon Musk, President of Tesla . It is foolhardy innovators in technology circles founder PayPal, Tesla Motors and SpaceX , which is inspired by the true importance of character “Tony Stark” in “Iron Man” , has said he sees the car manufacturer Tesla as an electric car that can be sold at prices consumers can afford.
We must continue to keep an eye on the situation after the Tesla imported luxurious and environmentally friendly electrical car in the market, the feedback on their perfromance, the ease of filling in power stations around the country or the rules of safety on the road. Whether this innovation make the shape of automotive market in the futre and how other car manufacturers prepare themselves in capturing opportunities domestically / internationally.
