Unique EV Features That Only Certified Tesla Auto Shops Can Tackle

Tesla

We will begin this blog on Tesla auto shops by talking about the vehicle brand’s eponymous tutelary genius. In the span of an astonishing yet under-appreciated career, it is well known that Serbian inventor Nikola Tesla achieved a number of remarkable “firsts”:

  • First to invent the alternating current (AC) motor
  • First to develop AC generation and transmission technology
  • First to file a U.S. patent (in 1884) for the electric arc lamp
  • First to invent the Tesla coil, an induction device widely used in radio technology and for creating artificial lightning
  • First to speculate that a very strong high-frequency signal might be used to develop a radar system (later inspiring Émile Girardeau, who helped develop France’s first radar system in the 1930s)
  • First to install water-driven power machinery at Niagara Falls, which carried electricity to Buffalo by 1896
  • First to photograph a subject (his friend Mark Twain) lit by phosphorescent light
  • Tesla may well have produced the first x-ray photo (before Wilhelm Röntgen!) in the U.S. when he attempted to use a vacuum tube to obtain that aforementioned image of Mark Twain.
  • While Tesla did not invent fluorescent or neon lights, he did creat the first neon sign.
  • He also built a wireless-controlled boat, one of the first-ever exhibited.
