Tesla Model S

The Tesla Model S is a full-sized battery electric sedan developed by Tesla Motors, initially codenamed WhiteStar during research and preliminary development. Model S was announced in a press release on June 30, 2008. The prototype vehicle was displayed at a press conference on March 26, 2009. (http://www.roadandtrack.com/future-cars/tesla-builds-a-4-door). Delivery of Model S is expected to begin in mid-2012, with a base price of US$57,400.

The base model will have a range of 160 miles (260 km) when fully charged, and a 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) acceleration of 5.6 seconds. The first 1,000 sedans off the line will be the Signature Series, equipped with the 300 miles (480 km) battery pack. A standard charge may take 3 to 5 hours using 220 volt household current. With commercial-grade equipment, a 45-minute Quick Charge to 80% offers the equivalent of adding 170 miles (270 km) of range for each hour of charging. In addition, a battery swap will be possible in less than two minutes.
