    Early versions of the first Tesla Roadster had a 2 speed transmission. But it was prone to failure, due to the massive torque of the electric motor.

    The Tesla Model S, Model X and Model 3 have a single speed gearbox with a fixed ratio. Since the motor can spin backwards (to reverse the car) and has maximum torque at 0 RPM no transmission is needed.
