Tesla Motors officially sold more Model S vehicles in one year than the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf, two of many other competitors, according to Yahoo News.

“I’ve actually made a prediction that within 30 years a majority of cars made in the United States will be electric,” said Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk in an announcement. Musk  has been selling over 400 cars every week, which is record breaking for an exclusive all-electric car.

The Model S has an impressive range, with a choice of a 40, 60, or 85 kWh that can propel the vehicle to 60 mph in under four seconds. The Tesla also has a range of up to 265 miles, which exceeds the mileage of its competition by a huge margin, according to telsamotors.com. The Model S  also comes equipped with other unique features including a 17 inch screen as the dashboard and automatic door handles that pop out of door. In comparison, the Nissan leaf can barely travel 100 miles.

By 2014, Elon expects the production to jump to 800 cars per week. “I’m very confident we’ll get there,”  Musk stated to Bloomberg News. Since the company is at the peak of success, a seven passenger crossover is already in the making, with many unique features including falcon wing doors, which allow passengers to enter the third row with more space and comfort than any other family sized crossover, according to Bloomberg News.
