Following last year’s seminal launch of the Tesla Roadster, Silicon Valley’s electric upstart have been busying themselves behind the scenes developing and testing their all-new electric sedan, the Tesla Model S. Production is not expected to begin until next year, but we shall no doubt be following this one closely and bringing you all the latest news as it breaks.
Model S performance is second to none. The Model S powertrain offers instant torque at the driver’s request. Though designed for comfort, safety, and utility, the coveted Model S does not sacrifice performance. Command control and the Model S delivers the power, acceleration and precise handling of a sports car with quiet simplicity. 0-60 in 5.6 seconds / 120 mph top speed
Choose from one of three battery pack options to suit typical driving needs: 160, 230, or 300 miles per charge. Like the Roadster, the Model S is engineered to plug into nearly any outlet, anywhere in the world. With the ability to recharge in 45 minutes, the car begs to be driven everywhere you want to go.
“With electric cars look and perform like this, it really is a wonder we still drive petrol and diesel cars!”
Carry anything needed for a day, a trip, an unexpected shopping spree. The Model S offers luxurious space, seating for five adults and two children, and a second cargo area under the hood.
The Model S power-train features a liquid-cooled, floor-mounted battery pack and single-speed gearbox. The body design is of stamped aluminum and provides top-notch aerodynamics, style, and safety. The 17-inch touchscreen with in-car 3G connectivity means quick access to streaming radio, gps navigation, restaurant recommendations, and movie showtimes.
“My only question left, is how, when it is possible to make an electric car this good-looking, have Toyota managed to make their award-winning Prius so damn ugly?”
