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.

The Bush administration had a tax loophole that allowed businesses to write off Hummers. That same "loophole" didn't cover small efficient vehicles.
"Conservatives" love tax loopholes, too.
The Bush administration exempted power plants from "tough new mercury air pollution regulation". Power plants are the largest emitters of mercury.

Oh, and exempting power plants from mercury pollution regulation (the installation of mercury traps) makes electric vehicles and plug-in vehicles particularly polluting.
One analysis I read recently said coal vehicle power is dirtier than modern petroleum-based power trains.
