Tesla Model S Electric Car Spotted In Nigeria

If you are asked to mention a car brand you won’t find on Nigerian roads, Tesla will easily come to mind. Because what electricity will you use to charge their fully electric cars.
However, Nigerians are car fanatics and will not seize to surprise us as a Tesla Model S was spotted on our roads as seen in this picture. This zero fuel and zero emission car does not need a stopover at the petrol station. All you need do is to charge it at home like you would your mobile phone.
See more photos of what the car looks like as well as more details of the recent Tesla Model S..
