North’s first Tesla sparking interest
Mr Hazratwala said the vehicle’s speed was restricted to 250km/ h, while its range, at an aver- age speed of 80km/ h, was s about 420km.
For Mr Hazratwala,, who has solar panels on his home, the purchase was driven by his liking g for technology and cars as well as recognition of the need to reduce fossil fuel emissions. “I love technology,” he said. “I was interested in how the technology has been applied to
if not daunt-- somethinghi we use se every day day.
“We have had the combustion engine, and now with the constraints on fossil fuels being a big topic, I think this is the way it’s going to go.”
