Anticipation continues to build for the mid-2012 release of Tesla’s Model S. It won’t be quite as powerful as the electric car maker’s initial offering, the Roadster, but the Model S still packs a punch while being a roomier and more functional everyday car. Plus, its price tag starts at about $50,000 – half the cost of a Roadster.
A few publications recently got to see and ride a beta version of the Model S and the early reviews are positive. Translogic says they “haven’t felt a ride this smooth since driving the Rolls Royce Ghost, a car that starts at nearly $250,000,” and Motor Trend says it’s the first all-electric ride that feels like a “real” car and could be “the car that makes the electric automobile a force.”
