The auto industry has a couple of established places where they go and conduct tests. For instance, they go to Nardo for high speed tests, they go to the Nurburgring to test the handling, and they go to the Arjeplog in Sweden for winter testing. Now, for a small car makers like Tesla, it’s a bit of a tall order to ship the cars to Europe, do the tests, and ship them back again. So they have to make do with whatever they can find stateside.

Tesla took the Model S to Baudette, Minnesota to test and evaluate the car in sub zero temperature and snow and ice driving condition. This is especially important, because the Model S is an electric family sedan. There’s no data available on such car for Tesla to refer to. They had to everything from scratch.

Tesla Model S will be soon launched in the market, starting at $50,000. Model S is offered with three battery options, each delivering unprecedented range. All three batteries are contained within the same enclosure, integrating with the vehicle in the same way, providing structural, aerodynamic, and handling advantages. All three batteries use automotive grade lithium-ion cells arranged for optimum energy density, thermal management, and safety.
