Its Roadster has performed strongly so far, with more than 500 cars delivered to customers, and its Model S saloon is set to follow in 2011.

Daimler recently acquired a 9.1 per cent share of Tesla and it has just sold 40 per cent of this stake to Abu Dhabi-based Aabar Investments.

“This investment allows Daimler and Aabar to leverage their shared interest in the development of low-CO2 drive systems,” said the two companies.
