Tesla’s Success did not happen overnight, it was found in 2003 by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning. Elon Musk, JB Straubel, Ian Wright later joined the company. Now, all the five members are considered as founders of Tesla Motors. Tesla’s members wanted to prove that electric cars could be better than gasoline-powered cars and each generation they were modeling were highly affordable to match the company’s mission: “to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable transport”.
