Tesla is an innovative, American company focused on building electric vehicles. It launched with a roadster, followed by the Model S hatchback and Model X SUV. These latter vehicles are known for extreme range and technological innovation, particularly in regards to ongoing improvements through over-the-air updates and driver-assist systems. The latest car in the line is the Model 3, positioned as the most affordable Tesla. It will be joined by Model Y, a crossover variation, and potentially a pickup truck and second-generation roadster in the future. Performance is impressive with the current vehicles. However, reliability and road test scores do vary.
