New Petersen Museum Exhibit to Cover History of Tesla

The Petersen Automotive Museum is opening a new exhibit that offers an in-depth look at the past, present, and future of Tesla, the museum announced.

“Inside Tesla: Supercharging the Electric Revolution” explores the company’s history, from the company’s beginnings to its rise to world leader in electric vehicles and clean energy technology, the museum said.

Gathering the most comprehensive collection of Tesla products to date, the exhibit features everything from early concept vehicles to rarely seen prototypes and record-breaking production vehicles. Beyond vehicles, attendees will see information and displays that tell the story of Tesla’s energy ecosystem, manufacturing automation, Autopilot and Full Self-Driving systems, among others, plus one-off projects with SpaceX, The Boring Company and Hyperloop.

“Tesla has revolutionized the automotive, EV, technology, and manufacturing spaces within a relatively short time span, begetting the question, ‘How did they do that?’” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “This exhibit strives to be a holistic walk-through of how the brand became a global phenomenon and further details what lies ahead.”

The exhibit will open to the public on Nov. 20 in the Mullin Family Grand Salon and Phillip Sarofim Porte Cochere on the museum’s first floor.
