Tesla Model S Gets Some Public Affection

Tesla today makes good on a long standing promise to deliver a no compromises, ground up built, pure EV to the market, with a live streaming  “first delivery” ceremony from their factory in Fremont, California.

Reportedly, today the company will deliver 10 shiny new Model S vehicles to eager customers.   And while these are actually deliveries 3 through 12, after the first two models went to board member Steve Jurvetson and CEO Elon Musk, I’m sure they will be nonetheless just as excited to get their cars.

Statement from Tesla on the event:

Just over three years ago we unveiled our vision for the future of transportation: Model S. Today we deliver.

For three years we have developed this car from the ground up with persistence and passion. Thank you to those who believed it could be done, and those who didn’t. You’re the reason we’re here today, delivering the car of the 21st century. We won’t stop until every car on the road is electric.

Watch live streaming of the event here today starting at 3:30 PDT:
(hopefully they have gotten a little better at streaming since the debut of the Model X)

    Why 3:30pacific? That is 6:30 here, not going to be able to come back here to watch it live.

    Do you know if it will be on a loop to see later?

      Whoopsie, your right. I’m notorious for attaching wrong photos to captions. Most notably a Tata piece featured an Audi e-tron for awhile, lol.

      I personally blame the editor around here (*cough* Lyle *cough*) for not keeping a tighter leash on us, (=

    For those of us waiting on getting a entry level car we are very far away from getting keys to our cars. you should mention that only the 85 KWH signature cars will be go out in the short term
