Cheapest Tesla Model S won't be available until Winter 2012
Tesla Motors has been teasing its gorgeous Model S electric sedan for
well over two years now
. Now the company has confirmed the official pricing for the vehicle, and is
holding firm on the $49,990 price of entry
after $7,500 federal tax credit.
As it stands now, here's how the four Model S variants will stack up (compared based on their battery capacity). All price listed include the tax credit:
$49,900, 0-60 in 6.5 seconds, 110 mph top speed, 160-mile range
$59,900, 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, 120 mph top speed, 230-mile range
$69,900, 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, 125 mph top speed, 300-mile range
$79,900, 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, 130 mph top speed, 300-mile range
All Model S sedans come standard with a 17" touchscreen, 19" wheels, and seating for up to seven passengers. Yes, you read that correctly; the Model S has seating for seven courtesy of two [optional] rear-facing jump seats in the rear cargo area.

Tesla's ordering page also lists all of the available options for the Model S including a $1,500 panoramic roof, $3,750 tech package, $1,500 active air suspension, and $1,500 rear-facing seat option.
The two 85 kWh variants will be made available in Summer 2012, the 60 kWh arrives in the Fall 2012, and the entry-level 40 kWh variant won't be available in the U.S. until Winter 2012 if all goes as scheduled.

Yeah the subsidy is rediculously unneccesary. And before anyone wants to tell me how great it is that the gov't supports this and "the environment," etc. blah blah blah...they best consider that this money going to very well off people is not going to any starving kids, soldiers fighting for our freedom, or anything else that you might deem more worthy (like CFLs).
It would be nice to have my own money to invest than having to rely on the gov't to decide what charities I will be supporting. And how heroic are these politicians who are so gernerous with other people's money?
