After the introduction of the Tesla Roadster, an electric sportscar that had the hearts of car enthusiasts and enviro-geeks pumping, Tesla took their time to unveil the Tesla Model-S, the soul of electric engineering. Starting at $57,400, the Model-S can go from 0 to 60 in 5.5 seconds and can travel up to 300 miles on a single 45 minute charge. The aerodynamic precision and beauty of the Tesla Model-S will be in direct competition with BMW and Mercedes, while the Roadster was competing with the Porsche. Expect this model to hit the mass-market in 2011, with America giving federal credit for those who can afford this model.
