Electric powertrains have numerous advantages over internal combustion engines. In addition to low cost of ownership, energy efficiency, and near silence, they also offer unparalleled responsiveness. Since the introduction of Tesla Roadster in 2008, we’ve exploited the immediate availability of motor power and torque to achieve unprecedented straight-line performance, making the car’s forward acceleration a pure extension of the driver. With Track Mode, which is designed specifically for use on closed autocross circuits and racetracks, our goal was simple: use that same motor power and torque to make cornering on the track feel just as natural as forward acceleration.
Tesla는 새로운 이사회 의장으로 Robyn Denholm을 임명했으며, 이 소식을 발표하게 되어 매우 기쁘게 생각합니다. Robyn Denholm의 이사회 의장직은 임명 즉시 그 효력이 발생합니다. 호주 최대 통신 회사인 Telstra의 재무 담당 최고 책임자(CFO)이자 전략팀장을 겸하고 있던 Robyn Denholm은 향후 Tesla의 이사회 의장직에 전념하기 위해서 Telstra에 퇴사 의사를 전달했습니다. 퇴사 의사를 밝힌 시점부터 6개월 동안 Robyn Denholm 인수인계 등의 절차를 거쳐 Telstra에서의 업무를 마무리하고, 그 후 Telstra를 떠나 Tesla 이사회에서 상근해 의장직을 수행할 것입니다.
Today in the U.S., we’re beginning to roll out our most advanced Autopilot feature ever: Navigate on Autopilot. Since introducing Software Version 9.0, Tesla owners with Enhanced Autopilot have driven tens of millions of miles to support the validation of Navigate on Autopilot, allowing us to collect performance and safety data at scale, based on real-world driving.
Last October, I joined Tesla to oversee its Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) team. Reporting directly to Elon and regularly meeting with him, I’ve enjoyed Tesla’s full support as I expanded the company’s global EHS team to 250 employees, adding 35 people at the Fremont factory alone. Over the past year, it’s been clear to me that nothing is more important to Tesla than the health and well-being of its employees. We are the largest manufacturer in the state of California, and while other U.S. auto manufacturers continue to outsource skilled jobs and safety standards, Tesla is creating and keeping more jobs right here in the United States, allowing us to control quality and safety directly. And the result is that our injury rate has continued to trend downward in 2018.
이전에 미국 도로교통안전국(NHTSA)이 테스트 한 모든 차량 중 부상 확률이 가장 낮고, 두 번째로 낮은 것으로 밝혀진 Model S와 Model X의 선진화된 구조를 기반으로 Model 3를 가장 안전하게 설계했습니다. 현재 Model 3는 모든 카테고리 및 하위 카테고리에서 완벽한 5-스타 안전 등급을 획득했을 뿐만 아니라, Model 3가 NHTSA의 역대 테스트 한 모든 차량 중 부상 확률이 가장 낮은 것으로도 나타났습니다.
This week, Tesla owners across North America are waking up to a car that is smarter, safer and more intuitive than ever before. Our most substantial update yet, Software Version 9.0, introduces a refined and simplified user interface, along with entirely new features for Model S, Model X, and Model 3, as well as on Tesla’s mobile app.
The following email was just sent to Tesla employees:
First, I’d like to thank you for your incredible efforts and contribution as we enter the final few weeks of this quarter. This is a very exciting time for Tesla, to say the least, and you are the reason for the tremendous progress we’ve made in a relatively short period of time. It is easy to forget that our company was almost unknown 10 years ago and didn’t even exist until after the start of the 21st century!
As I announced last Tuesday, I’m considering taking Tesla private because I believe it could be good for our shareholders, enable Tesla to operate at its best, and advance our mission of accelerating the transition to sustainable energy. As I continue to consider this, I want to answer some of the questions that have been asked since last Tuesday.
