The paper presents research on electric cars with an emphasis on Tesla cars. The paper aimed
to get to know the development of Tesla and the innovation of their vehicles. As part of the development
of their cars, range, consumption and charging play an important role, the research was focused on
comparing models and finding the best car. The research found that all Tesla models, that are currently
on the market, are comparable, with good range, charging time and consumption. Nowadays, however,
an important issue in our lives is the pandemic, so part of the article also describes the consequences
of Covid-19 on the company, in which we found that the company managed to operate profitably despite
this situation. In addition to cars’ good features, it’s also important to have charging options, which we
explored in this paper using a hypothetical route to various European cities and found that charging
stations are the most widespread in Western Europe and that it is almost impossible to drive east.
