Why Tesla Will Spark an Electric-Car Revolution


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editors/analysts Isaac Pino and Brendan Byrnes discuss topics around the investing world.

On June 22, Tesla is set to launch the Model S sedan. Investors, car enthusiasts, and car-industry veterans alike are wondering whether Tesla CEO Elon Musk can deliver on his ambitious plans to transform the electric-vehicle market. In Isaac's opinion, the launch will have huge implications in the car industry overall. Today, consumers are gravitating to more fuel-efficient vehicles to avoid high gas prices, they're choosing to drive shorter distances on a daily basis, and they're interested in products that push the envelope in technological innovation. Tesla seems poised to deliver on all of these accounts -- could now be the time to buy shares?
