Tesla Model S Info Console: Abt Checks It Out

Tesla Model S center console: A long way from cassette tapes and gas-station maps

CES 2013—The life of a copywriter is far from glamorous; as someone who drives an 18 year-old station wagon with alignment issues and a rusty muffler, I get excited when I ride in a car with a CD player. Needless to say, when I saw this video of the Tesla Model S interactive center console, I was more than impressed. Nvidia had a Model S parked at their CES booth, since the display runs on their Tegra 3 mobile processor. Our very own tech-head, Josh, spent some time inside it, where he got a run-down on the screen’s capabilities.

Abt Earth Day Extravaganza!

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Yesterday Abt Electronics celebrated Earth Day in style!  For starters we had on display an electric car from Tesla motors.  With a sleek design, it is also extremely energy efficient.  Up to 245 miles per charge and goes 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds, this car releases no tailpipe emissions.

In addition to that, The Grove from Glenview Park District came out and showed our customers some of their popular reptiles like turtles and snakes.  Going over the importance of taking care of our environment to keep their ecosystems safe and healthy, all the kids were in awe.

To top it all off, our own in-house artist, Joe T.  spent the better half of the day painting a picture representing the earth and Abt Electronics’s efforts for the benefit of the environment.

It was another great exciting Earth day.  Visit Abt’s Green Efforts for more information on how Abt continues to try and make this planet a better place for everyone.

Tesla Roadster Sport at Abt

Tesla Roadster Sport at Abt

Have you seen the newest, eco-friendly attraction in our atrium? We are happy to partner with Tesla Motors to showcase a Roadster Sport in our store until this Saturday, July 31st. The Roadster is one of the first electric cars available for purchase today.  It can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.7 seconds, 245 miles per charge and has 0 tailpipe emissions!  What’s great is that it plugs into nearly any outlet and its expected battery life is 7 years, or 100,000 miles.  While this vehicle runs in the low six-figure price range, it does qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit because it is an electric vehicle. If you want to take a look at this beauty, make sure you stop on by before the Roadster Sport drives off into the sunset.
