Im sure that we’ll be seeing Teslas in the near future in Kuwait, when exactly, I’m not so sure, it might become a future trend like everything else here in Kuwait. For those of you that dont know the Tesla, its a fully electric car that can travel to speeds up to 130 mph, and go distances of around 500 miles on a full charge. It does come with an AC hehe and its not currently available in the middle east, currently only in US and some countries in Europe.
I took these pictures of the Tesla in their showroom at Tyson Corner Shopping Mall in Virginia last week.
The interior of the car was most impressive. unfortunately there were to many people and i was using my iphone to photograph these.
The chasis is fully made from aluminum as shown in the following photo :
It had very spacious front and rear storage spaces and no engine under the hood.
According to the staff there you get instant power and can accelerate from 0 to 100 in 4.2 seconds and yes it has an AC that they say is quite good and economical since the air isnt also used to cool down other engine parts like what you might have on conventional cars.
As you can see theres also a lot of room for customization there.
Here’s a good review by caranddriver with an overview of the car.. Do you think we’ll see them on our roads i the next few years?
