Tesla Motors Inc. said it will begin delivering its first mass production electric car, the Model S to customers starting June 22, about a month ahead of the expected schedule.
The Palo Alto-based company says it has more than 10,000 orders for the battery-powered car but that not all will be delivered this year.
The announcement of early deliveries by the company co-founded by tech industrialist and chief executive Elon Musk came on the same day that SpaceX, another Musk company, became the first private business to launch a spacecraft to the International Space Station. The mission is the first test of NASA’s plans to outsource space missions to privately funded companies.
