It’s not often that a startup comes around in the car business and really shakes things up, but Tesla is certainly one of them. This Silicon Valley-based automaker specializes in all-electric luxury cars with performance that rivals some of the most advanced gas-powered performance cars out there. It started with the Tesla Roadster, an EV based on the Lotus Elise, and the brand has come a long way since then. It now offers the Model S and Model 3 sedans plus the Model X crossover, all of which are electric with impressive range and technology. Tesla is a car company that challenges the status quo of Detroit and has grown a loyal following among a new breed of luxury car buyers.
