1. Tesla cars come with a dedicated dog mode

Yes! That's exactly what you read: you can now ride safely with your loved pets in your Tesla! In 2019, Tesla introduced a dog mode on all cars, which allows you to set up the temperature inside the car so it makes your dogs, cats, or any other pet comfy while they wait for you.

In this mode, the screen also broadcasts a message to people who might be concerned about the pet inside the car, letting them know that the pet is safe.

This amazing feature includes both cooling and heating modes! 🐶😺

2. Tesla Model 3 is the best-selling electric vehicle in the world.

According to Clean Technica, the Tesla Model 3 wasn’t only successful in the European market but it’s actually the first electric vehicle to surpass one million sales worldwide! 

Impressive numbers like 1,031,588 Teslas have been sold in the second quarter of 2021 for the Model 3 and around 250,000 for Model Y.

Overall, stats say there must be around two million Tesla vehicles circulating.


3. Bioweapon defense mode and HEPA

Tesla Model X comes with a super technological and advanced mode called ‘Bioweapon Defence Mode’, which is an air filter system.

This system keeps hazardous particles, small bacteria, smoke, and various other pollutants out of the car. Also, Tesla has its very own HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filtration system installed in all of its electric cars. This purifying system keeps all bacteria, pollen, dust, mold, and other airborne particles out of the car. 

We can say then that the air inside Tesla is beautifully purer compared to other cars! 😉

4. Electromobility for everyone

You might think EVs are not made for everyone, but Tesla is here to prove that wrong and make better cars for all people. 

Tesla Model 3 was launched with the aim to make electric cars easily accessible to all. The Model 3 is not as pricey as other Tesla models and here at Ferry, it starts at $799/month with no down payment! Tesla and Ferry want to make electromobility available for everyone!

5. Tesla parts probably won’t need replacing

Tesla cars are developed to be largely regenerative. That means, thanks to the braking mechanism and rechargeable battery, you’re unlikely to ever need to go replacing common bits and pieces for your vehicle. In fact, it’s rare you’ll need to repair anything beyond the wheels!

That makes having a Tesla more sustainable and cost-free! The benefits are just getting better and better. 🥳

6. There are almost 30k Tesla supercharger points worldwide

According to Electrive, the latest Tesla facts say the company boasts 3,254 supercharger locations around the world, with a total of 29,281 charging points (which represent a 50% increase over those of Q3 2020).

And Tesla is aiming for more: the company is planning to triple its charging locations by 2023!

Wherever you go, you'll have a place to charge your Tesla! ⚡

7. Fastest Speed Electric Vehicle Record

The Tesla Roadster 2020 holds the record for the fastest electric car in the world, with record-setting acceleration, range, and performance. 

This car can cover from 0-60 mph in a time of 1.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds, a complete quarter-mile sprint in 8.9sec and a top speed of over 250 mph.

8. Tesla’s safety protocols are famously strict

Tesla cars are always highlighted for being some of the safest on the planet. In fact, Elon Musk has claimed that the Model 3 is THE safest car on the road. Tesla's CEO often shares safety testing data for all to see via Twitter.

9. You need to regularly update Teslas

Just as you’d need to update a phone every now and then, you also need to update your car! This helps to ensure your car is safe from hacking attempts. That technology brings us to the idea that electric vehicles are the easiest to own and are as updateable as a phone!

10. The name has a meaning

The name was given in honor of another designer and engineer who created the induction motor and AC – Nikola Tesla. Rumour has it that Martin Eberhard, co-founder of Tesla and its first CEO, came up with it while on a date with his wife at Disneyland!
