Elon Musk has now established himself as one of the most innovative entrepreneurs the world has ever seen, by often coming up with ideas that can help advance the human race into the future. From building tunnels under the city of Los Angeles to help alleviate the huge traffic problem in the region, to simply creating a company that sells flamethrowers, there is no telling what Musk might come up with next.
It cannot be argued, however, that his most popular and successful business so far has been his electric vehicle company Tesla, which has completely shaken up the industry in the last few years.
The success of this company is mirrored by the fact that it is by far the most profitable car company over the past 5 or so years, and it is also the most valuable car company in the industry, by far, beating out titans in the market like Toyota and Ford. But what makes a Tesla car so special? What does it do, in terms of technology, that other cars simply cannot do? Let’s find out.
Tesla’s have been described as the super jets of the road, having some of the most innovative technology ever seen in road vehicles in the history of the industry. Don’t feel like driving for the next 3 hours while on a country-wide road trip?
Tesla offers an incredible autopilot mode that allows the driver to simply sit and enjoy the scenery, switch on a movie, or play at an online casino South Africa. No one is quite sure how Tesla and Musk managed to insert a working autopilot feature into an environment as unpredictable as the roads and highways of the world, but that is exactly what they have done. Every Tesla now comes with a built-in self-driving, autopilot mode that can be activated at any time.
So, you’d expect Tesla to be able to charge at a fast pace, so that the owner of the electric vehicle can get back onto the road without problems at any time right? Well, Tesla takes this notion and bumps it up to what they call supercharging. Unlike the EVs offered by companies like Toyota and Ford, Tesla has the option to charge the battery of the vehicle to provide it with a range of 200+ miles in an astonishing 15 minutes.
Tesla, and Musk, are trying to undo everything that we know about the road car industry, recently getting rid of something as small and standard as a set of keys. What Musk is trying to do by implementing something as trivial as keycard access is to streamline our lives and everything that may cause even a minor inconvenience?
Sometimes it is difficult to store a set of keys in your pocket, right? Well, how about simply keeping your car key in your wallet? Easy as that.
