How Track Mode Works

Electric powertrains have numerous advantages over internal combustion engines. In addition to low cost of ownership, energy efficiency, and near silence, they also offer unparalleled responsiveness. Since the introduction of Tesla Roadster in 2008, we’ve exploited the immediate availability of motor power and torque to achieve unprecedented straight-line performance, making the car’s forward acceleration a pure extension of the driver. With Track Mode, which is designed specifically for use on closed autocross circuits and racetracks, our goal was simple: use that same motor power and torque to make cornering on the track feel just as natural as forward acceleration.

这一年:特斯拉更安全

去年十月,我加入特斯拉,负责领导环境、健康和安全(EHS)团队。我很享受特斯拉所给予的权利支持,不仅有机会定期和Elon沟通相关工作,还将全球EHS团队扩展到250人的规模,仅在Fremont工厂就增加了35人,在这一年的时间里,我深刻地认识到员工的健康和福祉对特斯拉而言是多么的重要。作为美国加州最大的制造商,在其它美国汽车制造商一直在外包技术和安全标准相关工作的情况下,特斯拉正在美国创造并保留更多就业机会,这也使得我们能够直接控制质量和安全。我们的工伤事故率在2018年呈持续下降趋势。

Model 3 achieves the lowest probability of injury of any vehicle ever tested by NHTSA

Based on the advanced architecture of Model S and Model X, which were previously found by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to have the lowest and second lowest probabilities of injury of all cars ever tested, we engineered Model 3 to be the safest car ever built. Now, not only has Model 3 achieved a perfect 5-star safety rating in every category and sub-category, but NHTSA's tests also show that it has the lowest probability of injury of all cars the safety agency has ever tested.

Company Update

The following email was just sent to Tesla employees:

First, I'd like to thank you for your incredible efforts and contribution as we enter the final few weeks of this quarter. This is a very exciting time for Tesla, to say the least, and you are the reason for the tremendous progress we've made in a relatively short period of time. It is easy to forget that our company was almost unknown 10 years ago and didn’t even exist until after the start of the 21st century!

正如我上周二所宣布的,我正在考虑将特斯拉私有化,因为我相信这对股东有利,让特斯拉能够以最佳状态运营,并推进我们加速向可持续能源转变的愿景。在我继续考虑这个问题时,我想回答自上星期二以来所提出的一些问题。
