Telsa has released another teaser of its upcoming Model S electric sedan. This is the second official image from Telsa. Clearly, the fledgling US automaker is letting the market know that, despite financial concerns, it is still forging ahead with its all-electric plans.

The five-seater passenger vehicle will reportedly be capable of around 360km on a single charge. Those wishing to get their hands on one however, will have to practice some patience - the car is not expected for another four years.

Telsa has said it plans to release a 1000-unit Signature Series of the car for early adopters, but will require some USD $40,000 just to reserve one.

Pricing rumours have fluctuated from around the $30,000 mark to beyond $60,000, but given the deposit required, we're thinking it's more likely to be the latter.


After the initial introduction period, Tesla will then allow customers to place a $10,000 deposit to order a Model S, and current Tesla Roadster customers will also receive a $10,000 discount on the purchase price.

While Tesla is doggedly forging ahead, customers might remember that the company has been showing signs of financial strain in recent times, including the sudden closure of its research and development facility in Michigan. With this in mind, some customers may not wish to part ways with their hard-earned dollars just yet.

We'll keep you posted as more information on the Model S and Telsa's movements comes to light; stay tuned.
