- Jul. 8, 2014 - SAN DIEGO – Nikola Tesla
powered the first ever electric car in 1918. Not a drop of oil, no gasoline or hydrogen fuel, nor any natural gas or water. That meant no combustion engine or exhaust system. His goal was to prove we could drive a car with no pollution to our environment. 83 years later TESLA
is in the spotlight again.At the age of 28 Nikola Tesla arrived in New York from Europe in 1884 with one goal: to work with the greatest electrical engineer in the world: Thomas Edison. After a short stint working with Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla created the Tesla Electric Light Company and attracted financing for what would become his first of many inventions that have paved the way to what is known today as the electric car.The most luxurious, and even sexy, of all electric cars is the TESLA. The 100 percent fully electric car fist hit the road when TESLA Motors began to design, manufacture, and sell electric cars and electric vehicle powertrain components. According to archived TESLA Motors website content, the founders of TESLA say their company and vision pays homage to Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), the Serbian inventor and engineer who created the induction motor and alternating-
current (AC) power transmission. They have publicly stated that without Tesla‘s vision and brilliance, their cars wouldn’t be possible stating that they are confident that if Nikola Tesla were alive today, he would look over their 100 percent electric car and nod his head with both understanding and approval.What does having an electric car mean to our planet? It means no smog and no contributing to global warming. No CO emissions also means the elimination of many respiratory diseases. Each gasoline or diesel vehicle produces tons of carcinogenic (cancer causing) CO that is in the air we breathe causing countless medical issues and causing billions of dollars in health care costs. Not only did Tesla prove that you can drive a car for a full week using no fuel he also proved that you can power your home fuel free.Few know the other work of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors and scientists to ever live. His many contributions include AC Electricity, Induction Motor, Radio, Remote Control, x-ray, Turbines, in all totaling nearly 770 inventions to his credit. “TESLA” is a film that will enlighten, inspire, and educate audiences this summer becoming one of the must see independent films of 2014.
The first screening of “TESLA” will be at 12:00 pm on Saturday August 2, 2014 at the Stephen J Buck Memorial Theater, New Hope PA as part of the New Hope Film Festival. New Hope Film Festival will be host to filmmakers from 16 different countries debuting their films at this year’s annual event.
