How Tesla Motors has changed history

How Tesla Motors has changed history

By Alison van Diggelen, host of Fresh Dialogues

In part two of my interview with Laurie Yoler of Growth Point Technologies we explore the historic role Tesla Motors has played in changing the way consumers and car manufacturers view alternative energy vehicles. Tesla founder, Elon Musk says he wants to make Tesla the Apple of electric cars, but for now, he’s had to downshift on his new model plans.

How did Tesla wake up large car makers to the fact that consumers were demanding more choices?

What was Laurie’s role in the early days of Tesla Motors? Why was she so passionate about the company’s mission?

Why did Tesla choose San Jose for its new manufacturing plant and headquarters?

What is Laurie’s motivation for backing clean technology? Does she want to save the planet or make a buck? Or both?
