Green Living Guy on Planet Green for the Tesla Roadster

This was an honor not to just to attend the event for the Roadster but to then write such a fun article on Planet Green.

What can we say when Buying Green and Electric Cars? Tesla Motors

There are cars and then there are Tesla Motors Electric Cars. I drove their electric cars last week and I can tell you there is truly nothing like Tesla’s great eco-innovation today.

Tesla Model S
This Model S has the class of a vehicle like no other. Great interior, great seating and well; the movie clip (below) says it all. The Tesla Model S electric car that IS on the market has an amazing AC drive of a new design with a new controller, new motor, and new battery sub-system.

Tesla Turns Green into Profit | AltEnergyMag.com

Tesla Motors turned profitable for the first time in July 2009, when the electric car manufacturer shipped a record 109 vehicles. A surge in sales and reduced manufacturing costs of Tesla’s Roadster 2 sports car helped boost the company to $1 million in earnings and $20 million in revenue. The Roadster has a range of about 244 miles per charge — the first production electric vehicle to cross the 200-mile mark, according to the press release. The Roadster is the only highway-capable electric vehicle for sale in North America or Europe, and the company says it is faster than a Porsche and twice as energy-efficient as a Toyota Prius.

When I attended the Tesla event way back when I forgot that I had this picture of Chris Paine and I. Chris Paine is the Director of the movie, Who Killed The Electric Car.

The movie “investigates the events leading to the quiet destruction of thousands of new, radically efficient electric vehicles. Through interviews and narrative, the film paints a picture of an industrial culture whose aversion to change and reliance on oil may be deeper then its ability to embrace ready solutions.”

Who Killed the Electric Car? and Chris Paine were nominated by the Writer’s Guild for Best Documentary of 2006. The film also received nominations from The Broadcast Critics Awards and The Environmental Media Awards for Best Documentary of 2006. The film won the audience award at the Canberra International Film Festival and won a special jury prize at the Mountain Film Festival.

He is working on a new movie called Revenge of The Electric Car. While we couldn’t hook up for an interview in his new movie; I Know it would have been cool but whatever, it was still a pleasure to meet and talk with Chris.
