Over a year ago, Elon Musk shook the auto industry by announcing the Tesla Model 3, a more affordable all-electric sedan that would rival best-selling luxury cars. Today is the official launch of the long-awaited vehicle, and Tesla is handing over the keys to the first 30 lucky owners. Model 3 is set to become the automaker’s first mass produced electric vehicle and, if successful, it will turn Tesla Inc. from a boutique car brand into a major manufacturer. While the first 3s make their way to their owners, let’s plug into the history of the company and see how it got where it is.
The Tesla Inc. Timeline marks major milestones and accomplishments in the history of the manufacturer, including company-related events and product releases. While everybody associates Tesla with Elon Musk, the company wasn’t founded by him, but by engineers Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning, who financed the startup until the series A funding. Musk led Tesla’s first financing round in 2004 and joined the Board of Directors as Chairman. Due to his critical investments and involvement in the company, Elon Musk is officially considered as a co-founder.
