Tesla Model S is the Electric Car of Our Dreams
While none of us here have a Telsa Roadster, we all secretly lust for one for the sheer performance. Of course, the sticker and limited practicality keep us from owning one. Enter the Tesla Model S sedan.
The Model S will have an anticipated base price of $57,400. The price will effectively become $49,900 after a federal tax credit of $7,500. Going from naught to sixty in just 5.5 seconds, the Tesla Model S will have a 300 mile (484 km) range from its 8,000-cell “removable” battery pack and a 220V outlet will fully charge the Model S in four hours. The standard battery pack is expected to last between 7 to 10 years (the vehicle is under warranty for 3 to 4 years), and battery pack replacements are said to be below $5,000. If the 5.5 second dash isn’t quick enough, Tesla said that there will a sport model that will make it to 60 in under 5. For those who want double the traction, there’s also an all-wheel-drive model in the works.
