USA: 2013 Tesla Model S Preview

When people think of the electric car, they still see that small, comical, short-ranged automobile that we all fear we’ll be stuck with when the world’s runs out of petrol. But for years’ already, California-based Tesla has been offering the Roadster – a cool-looking two-seater that goes the distance.

Tesla has now brought out the five-seater Model S, available with a extra two seats for small children.

The opposition on the electric car market has so far been scarce for Tesla, the main competition being, at best, still in the shape of promising prototypes. Audi has the R8 e-tron, supposed to come out towards the end of 2012.

Infiniti has the LE concept – an 100% electric-powered car unveiled at the New York Auto Show – but has yet to confirm a date for when it will be commercialized.

Price for the Model S varies according to the battery range. The first of three option is a 40 kWh version (costs $50,000), that can take you anywhere in the 257 km range. Then there is the 60 kWh ($60,000) good for 370 km, and finally the 85 kWh ($70,000) that will go 483 km.
