Driving off

Electric car maker Tesla Motors officially handed off the first ten of its Model S electric cars at a launch event at its factory in Fremont, Calif. on Friday. Workers filled a corner of the factory and surrounded a line of the cars as the first customers accepted their keys and were driven off with their cars. Early customers that picked up their cars included DBL Investors Partner Nancy Pfund and DFJ Partner Tim Draper. Here’s out photos of the event:
