The overarching objective of Teslamotors.com is to deliver information about the
company, its cars, and its technology to a variety of audiences in a manner that
is engaging and informative. The website redesign was released immediately
following Tesla’s successful initial public offering on June 29, 2010. Tesla
seeks to challenge auto industry status quo with it’s game-changing electric
vehicle technology and upend the sentiment that EVs are synonymous with
sacrifice; its website is an extension of this mission. Built by a small team on
an opensource platform, the website demonstrates Tesla’s start-up approach.
