Tesla Motors Brings the Roadster to Acquia

Acquia and Tesla Accelerating at Top Speeds

Woburn, Mass. – January 13, 2011 – Acquia, the enterprise guide to Drupal, announced today it will be hosting a Tesla Roadster test-drive event at its Woburn, Mass. facility on January 14, 2011. Both Acquia and Tesla Motors – maker of the only electric sports car in the world – are on the road to success and share a passion for delivering innovative and groundbreaking new products.

Like Acquia, Tesla is constantly innovating. The company’s website runs on Drupal, which provides a world-class platform to showcase Tesla’s amazing automobiles, foster community among customers, and share news and product details as they develop.

“The entire Acquia team is pumped-up for the Tesla Roadster test drive,” said Jim Salem, Vice President Platform Services at Acquia who organized the Tesla test-drive. “What’s more fun than 295 lbs-ft of torque and 288 horsepower thrusting you into your seat as you go 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds?”

The Tesla Roadster is the only car on the road that provides supercar performance without the emissions. Powered by the most energy-dense battery in the industry, the vehicle travels 245 miles on a single charge and plugs into nearly any electrical outlet in the world. Drivers who plug in their Roadsters at the end of the day wake up in the morning to the equivalent of a full tank of gas.
