WHAT: Autodesk, Inc. announced that the new electric car from Tesla Motors, the Model S, will begin a one-year exhibition at the Autodesk Gallery at One Market on Sunday, September 19. At approximately 10 a.m. Pacific time, the Model S will be lifted into the building’s second floor gallery through one of the arched windows and rolled onto the exhibit floor where it will remain for the next year.
Tesla Motors’ Model S is the first premium sedan to be built from the ground up around an electric powertrain. A perfect blend of form and function, this four-door, five-seater is designed to deliver the smooth, zero-emission acceleration made famous by its predecessor, the Tesla Roadster, without sacrificing its roomy interior and cargo space. Built with superior aerodynamics, the Model S will drive 300 miles on a charge and zoom from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds.
WHERE: The Autodesk Gallery at One Market in San Francisco celebrates the design process that takes a great idea and turns it into a reality. With more than 20 different exhibits regularly on display that showcase the innovative work of Autodesk customers, the gallery illustrates the role technology plays in design and engineering.
Exhibits in the Autodesk Gallery are occasionally updated to highlight recent projects by Autodesk customers in many industries. The automotive exhibit will be updated soon with a story on Tesla Motors. As the Model S combines cleantech and innovation, the exhibit helps showcase the broad base of customers that use Autodesk 3D design, engineering and entertainment software.
The Autodesk Gallery at One Market is open to the public every Wednesday from noon to 5:00 p.m., with a guided tour at 12:30 p.m.
