Expert Opinion on the New Tesla Model S by Steve Tsingas

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/31/14 -- Tesla Motors, a California-based electrical car company, released its numbers for the first quarter of 2014 this week. Elon Musk, Tesla's Chairman, Product Architect, and CEO, was happy to announce that Tesla delivered an impressive number of 6457 Model S cars in the first quarter, which is reason enough for Musk to expand the production facility for the Model S production. On top of that, the company continues to grow outside of the United States: In June a right hand drive version of the Tesla Model S will be launched in the United Kingdom, followed by the introduction of Model S to Hong Kong and to Japan soon thereafter.

The Tesla Model S was first shown to the public as a prototype at the Motor Show in Frankfurt in 2009 and has been available on the automotive market in the United States since June 2012. One of the first proud owners of the state-of-the-art electrical car in the US was Steve Tsingas, CEO of City Power Marketing. Having fought fervently for the widespread selling of electrical cars for decades, Tsingas was excited that his wife Lauren happened to need a new car right around the same time that Tesla came out with its Model S. And of course Tsingas could not resist taking a test drive before handing the keys over to his wife.

"The driving experience is something else," Steve Tsingas gushes. "There is a reason why Consumer Reports gave the TESLA a 99 out of 100 points, the highest in history. Operating the car is closer to using a good Smartphone than driving a car. The 17-inch control panel is easy and intuitive unlike the clunky displays and software that BMW, Mercedes and pretty much all other automakers offer. The acceleration is blistering, easily beating almost every car currently on the market. The ride and handling have no comparison -- Lexus, Mercedes and BMW do not even come close. Finally, the most important thing is the range: While the car can easily get over 280 miles to a charge, TESLA recommends that you only go to a 225 mile charge for daily use."

Steve Tsingas is a Florida-based entrepreneur and pioneer in the power trading industry. He graduated from Widener University in Chester, PA with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering, followed by a Professional Engineer license and an MBA from the University of Maryland. During his work as a field engineer for NETZSCH Inc. and later for Atlantic City Electric Company in New Jersey, Steve was sent to Trenton to argue for an electric vehicle program in public hearings. He was shocked to discover that major automakers spared no expenses hiring lobbyists to ridicule his proposal, making the idea of electric cars ever being available to the general public seem impossible. Even though Steve went on to found his own company, City Power Marketing LLC, in 2005, electric cars remained one of his passions as he kept supporting them over the years. In the meantime, his determination, experience, drive and knack for profitability made his own company a huge success. Thanks to Steve's motto to "work smarter, not harder", his business continues to thrive and flourish everyday.
