Tesla just announced its (planned to be) world’s first mass-produced, highway-capable fully electric family Sedan.
The design is great.
And the specs even more so:
- 300 Mile range
- Only 45min for full charge (which BTW costs only $4 for a full tank)
- 0-60mph in 5.6 seconds
- 17 Inch, Touch screen TV, with in-car 3G connectivity (so you can use apps such as Pandora, Google Maps, etc)
Does any one need any more convincing?!
You can place an order on their website here.
But just before you do... take note of two caveats:
1. $50,000 base price. I guess that with the minimal options it would come closer to $60,000 or more...
2. Deliveries start in 2011. So unless you work on Sand Hill Road and have invested in the company, prepare to wait. (consider that Tesla has delivered 300 of its Roadsters to date with nearly 1,000 more customers still on the waiting list)
I decided to pass on the car, and just buy the T-Shirt.
But they are out of stock...
