Q&A with Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen and Model S Program Director Jerome Guillen
Interest in Model S is running high as it enters the Beta phase of development.

I typically end my answer with: “and it’s electric!” Shocked, their response is almost always: “wow, but how far does it go?”
This weekend we open the next Tesla Store at Park Meadows Mall in Lone Tree, Colorado. Each Tesla Store opening represents a pivotal milestone on the path to putting Model S on the road; they make Tesla’s groundbreaking electric vehicle technology accessible to more people.
Hong Kong, often described as the "Pearl of the Orient," is an incredibly vibrant Chinese city with British characteristics: the rule of Common Law, one of the world’s finest police forces, a free economy, world-renowned financial institutions and well-educated, entrepreneurial people.
