An American electric automaker headed by Elon Musk, Tesla began selling the Lotus Elise-based Tesla Roadster in 2008, and has since followed with the Model S sedan and Model X SUV, both latter cars manufactured in its Hayward, California plant. The company has garnered much attention as a disruptive force in the automotive industry.
The change came alongside the introduction of a less expensive Model 3.

The midrange Model 3 has a 260-mile range and will cost $45,000 before incentives.

Tesla's April Fools' Day joke is now an actual trademark application.
The 45-year-old media magnate (and son of Rupert Murdoch) is currently a nonexecutive member of Tesla's board.

This feature-packed update adds a ton of functionality to Teslas of all ages and is available now.
