Tesla Model S Sedan

Tesla Motors makes electric cars. Really cool, really expensive electric cars. They don't make gas-powered cars and they don't make hybrids. To learn a little about the company and see a brief Tesla history, see the timeline in the Washington Post.

On June 22, 2012, Tesla is slated to deliver the first of their new Tesla Model S Sedans. This car is a four door sedan with a "fast back" design and is expected to go from 0 to 60 MPH in under 6 seconds, and travel 300 miles on a charge. That's impressive.

I'm no car expert, but it's clear to see that there's lots of buzz and lots of consumer interest in electric and hybrid cars. Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Chevy and other big names are doing some interesting things. Tesla, though, is a tiny company. Their cars seem to have great style and great performance. If they can continue to deliver through an expanding line of car models, ramp up their production and reduce costs (in part through economies of scale as sales increase), this company might become a major player in the next wave of cars.

I'd love to see more of the sporty Tesla Roadster, the sleek new Model S sedan, and eventually the gull-winged Model X in every day use.

What do you think of Tesla? Have you seen one of their cars in person? Would you buy one, and if so at what price?

  1. Auto purchasing has become less difficult when because of development of auto back plans. Financing your auto fittingly considers your monetary conditions and reimbursement limit before giving you an auto back credit.Auto verkaufen
