Tesla Brings Right-Handed Model S to UK

Tesla Motors, Inc. (TSLA) will launch the right hand version of Model S Performance Plus in Britain next month, according to media reports. This is expected to boost demand for the car in the country where electric cars are not popular. Only 1,547 electric cars were sold in Britain in the first quarter of 2014.

One of the main reasons for their unpopularity is the short range offered by most electric cars. On an average, most electric cars need to be charged for a full night and offer a range of about 100 miles.

This is where Tesla gains an edge, as the Model S can drive up to 130 miles on just a 20-minute charge, which replenishes half the battery charge, from a Supercharger. This means that people can drive the length of UK with just a 20 minute break, once Tesla’s Supercharger network is up in the country. Moreover, after a full charge, which takes about 75 minutes using a Supercharger, Model S can drive up to 300 miles. However, charging takes more time in normal charging stations, with a full charge requiring about 9 hours.
