We engineer our cars to be the best in the world – in every category. Model 3, our most affordable car yet, is no exception. From the start, we designed it to be among the safest cars ever built, with the goal of getting as many Model 3s on the road as possible to further our mission.
Starting today, we’re launching Tesla Insurance, a competitively priced insurance offering designed to provide Tesla owners with up to 20% lower rates, and in some cases as much as 30%. Tesla Insurance offers comprehensive coverage and claims management to support our customers in California, and it will expand to additional U.S. states in the future.
Less than two years ago, Tesla built and installed the world’s largest lithium-ion battery in Hornsdale, South Australia, using Tesla Powerpack batteries. Since then, the facility saved nearly $40 million in its first year alone and helped to stabilize and balance the region’s unreliable grid.
While no car can prevent all accidents, we work every day to make them less likely to occur. The massive amount of real-world data gathered from our cars’ eight cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors, and forward-facing radar, coupled with billions of miles of inputs from real drivers, helps us better understand the patterns to watch out for in the moments before a crash.
10年以上にわたり、Teslaの技術者たちは世界一効率の良い電気自動車を造ることにこだわってきました。その結果として、市場の他社EV製品と比べて、Tesla車両では1回の充電ではるか遠くまで走行できます。今日、Model SおよびModel Xには圧倒的な距離を再充電の必要なく走行できるように変更を加え、最大の航続距離を誇る電気自動車として自らの記録を破ります。また、車両のバッテリーサイズを大きくせずに改良を実現したことで、システムレベルのデザインで車両の効率性を大幅に良くすることができるというTeslaの専門性が実証されました。
Today, we’re publishing our first ever Impact Report, which measures the impact our products and operations have on the environment and our communities. We believe the faster the world moves towards a zero-emission future, the better, so we’re working hard to minimize our greenhouse gas footprint, while investing in our employees and the communities in which we operate. We look forward to sharing further progress in future reports.
