The excitement is really starting to build as we count down the days to our first Model S deliveries. We are ahead of schedule and can’t wait to put our first Reservation Holders behind the wheel!

FIRST DELIVERIES SCHEDULED!
Tesla recently sent the following message to our first Signature Series reservation holders:
It's Time to Build Your Model S. The Fremont factory is almost ready and the entire Tesla team is very excited about taking this next important step.
This is another big step forward on our way to delivering Model S in July.

Easter Monday 2010 saw the first official motor race that included Electric Vehicles in the UK.

Finally, motor racing clubs could create competing classes for EVs.
