"A stylish 5-door saloon introduced by Tesla, the pioneer of EV cars."
The U.S.-based Tesla Motors first announced their Roadster in 2006, an open-top, 2-seater EV. At this time many car companies were still experimenting with how to bring electric cars to market, but Tesla started delivery in 2008. and in 2012 they sold out their initial planned production of 2500 cars, making steady progress in bringing electric cars to the mass market.
The second model announced in 2009 for the Tesla lineup was a 5-door saloon, the Model S. The body size of the new car is just between a Mercedes S class and E class, and the design with its sharp nose and short front/rear overhang was by Franz von Holzhausen, originally of Mazda's North American Design centre.
The interior is made of environmentally friendly materials, including 100% recyclable PET plastic and no-lead Italian leather. There is a 17" touch screen on the interior panel that centralises all information features, and a 3G service that allows continuous connection to the internet is available as an option.
The powertrain utilises a newly developed, liquid-cooled 9" motor, with lithium-ion batteries under the floor. The battery is available in 3 capacities according to price, and the highest capacity type allows a total driving distance of 300 miles. It can be charged from a household plug, and is compatible with 110 V, 220 V and 440 V. It can be charged in 4 hours using 220 V, and in as short as 45 minutes with 440 V.
The top grade signature performance boasts a maximum output of 410 BHP and a maximum torque of 61.2 kgfm. More than just adequately sporty, the 0-60 acceleration is a mere 4.4 seconds.
This car can be bought at the Tesla Motors dealership for 92,000 Credits. It has a detailed interior.
