Tesla electric cars
We have a range of electric cars from Tesla available on our all-inclusive monthly subscription model. Read on for more info on our range and Tesla’s history in the EV space.
Why you should drive a Tesla electric car
Despite being less than 20 years old, Tesla has firmly established itself as one of the – if not the – biggest names in electric cars. The Tesla brand has become synonymous with technology, luxury, and quality, and is a firm favourite among EV enthusiasts and drivers.

How Tesla’s helped shape the EV industry
Compared to other car manufacturers, many of which have been around for more than a century, Tesla is still a baby. However, in less than two decades Tesla has exploded in popularity and is now considered one of the biggest names in car manufacturing.
Not only that, but during their relatively short lifespan (to date), Tesla has influenced the automotive industry as a whole in ways that no other company has done since the invention of the automobile.
As recent as a decade ago, car manufacturers weren’t taking electric cars seriously and considered the technology a fad – one that wouldn’t last. This was, in part, because EV batteries had a much shorter range, and there was a severe lack of charge points across the UK (and abroad).
However, Tesla – headed by entrepreneur Elon Musk – advanced EV technology at such a rapid pace that EVs quickly became a rival to petrol and diesel cars. In the process, Tesla even clawed back from the brink of bankruptcy and got consumers excited about the future of electric cars.
It was at this point that other manufacturers – who had previously dismissed EVs – started developing electric cars of their own. Now, most major car manufacturers have EV models that are every bit as appealing as their petrol and diesel counterparts, but with massive financial and environmental benefits.
The EV industry has advanced so much – all thanks to Tesla’s perseverance – and the UK government has announced that the sale of petrol and diesel cars will be banned from the year 2030. In 2021, more than 935,000 Teslas were sold worldwide, and Tesla is on track to sell way in excess of 1 million in 2022, proving just how popular this relative newcomer has become.
Why driving an EV is great
There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.
- There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
- Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
- EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
- Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
Why Tesla produces excellent EVs
As we’ve already mentioned, Tesla is a relative newcomer to the automotive scene. However, Tesla electric cars are considered some of the best you can drive. But why exactly are they so highly regarded?
Tesla’s are absolutely loaded with technology. They have a huge touchscreen and infotainment centre, a single CPU, and a multitude of features that make the driving experience fun and easy.
Every Tesla model has bags of class, quality, and luxury, and many regard them as the biggest name in electric cars.
They have fantastic range
The Tesla Model S has a range of up to 405 miles, giving it the second highest range of any EV on the market today. However, at less than half the price of a Model S is the Model 3 Long Range, which has a max range of 360 miles. Even the larger Model Y SUV has a real world range of 270 miles.
They’ve perfected battery production
Tesla makes more EV batteries than all other manufacturers put together, which allows them to reduce costs, waste, and streamline the process.
They have a dedicated charger network
Tesla offers pay-as-you-go superfast charging stations, with more than 800 (and counting) across the UK, which makes charging fast, easy, and highly affordable.
They’re great to drive
Teslas are slick, modern, and comfortable, and are a pure pleasure to drive. They handle so well, and accelerate so quickly, that you’d never think you were driving an electric car.
