One of the Earth Week events held at Chabot was a green car exhibition. Green cars are considered better for the environment. The car show featured nine green vehicles next to the library on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
Tesla displayed its fully electric car, the Model 3 and a fully electric SUV, the Model X. Tesla’s display stole the show from the other cars. Tesla set up a table away from the other cars and invited people to sit in their cars to entice people into thinking about buying a Tesla.
Tesla’s all-wheel drive, dual motor performance, Model 3 has a range of 310 miles on one charge. It has a top speed of 162 mph and a zero to 60 in 3.2 seconds.
Tesla also displayed its performance Model X, which has a range of 305 miles on one charge. Despite being an SUV that can seat seven, the performance Model X sports all-wheel drive and a zero to 60 in as little as 2.7 seconds.
“If I could get an electric car, I would get a Tesla. I really like the designs and what the cars can do,” stated Nathan Angelo Balingit, an engineering major at Chabot.
