Tesla has been the subject of numerous lawsuits and controversies, including statements and behavior by CEO Elon Musk, allegations of retaliation against whistleblowers, alleged labor rights violations, and unresolved and dangerous technical issues with their products.

2003-2004: Establishment

Tesla was first established as Tesla Motors on July 1, 2003. The founders were Martin Eberhard and Mark Turping. After General Motors built all of their EV-1 electric vehicles in 2003, the two founders were inspired to start the Tesla company and saw the high efficiency of battery-powered vehicles as an opportunity to break the normal relationship between high performance and low mileage. Eberhardt said he wanted to “build a car manufacturing technology company whose core technology would be batteries, computer software and electric motors.”

Ian Wright was Tesla’s third employee when he joined a few months later. The trio raised 7 8.5 million in the Series A fund in February 2004, with Elon Musk contributing 7.5 million. He became chairman of the company’s board of directors and appointed Eberhardt as chief executive officer.

J.B. Stroubel joined Tesla in May 2004. A lawsuit settled by Eberhard and Tesla in September 2009 resulted in five people (Eberhard, Terpening, Wright, Kasturi and Strubel) claiming to be co-founders.

2005-2009: Roadstar

Musk took an active role in the company and supervised the design of the roadstar at the detailed level but was not deeply involved in day-to-day business operations. From the beginning, Musk consistently maintained Tesla’s long-term strategic goal of building affordable electric vehicles. Tesla’s primary goal was to build the premier sports car and then move to more mainstream vehicles, including sedans and affordable compacts.

In February 2006, Musk led a $13 million investment round for the Tesla B Series, adding good equity partners to the fundraiser. Mask led a third round of 3rd 40 million in May 2006 with technology partners. The round included investments from prominent entrepreneurs including Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, former eBay president Jeff Schol, Hyatt’s successor Nick Pritzker and VC firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Capricorn Management and Bay Area Equity Fund. Musk led the fourth round in May 2008, adding another 40,16,530 in financing, bringing the total investment through personal financing to $100 million.
