Tesla has launched a new video, showcasing its upcoming Model S with chief designer Franz von Holzhausen and sales chief George Blankenship discussing the ‘built from the ground up’ premium electric car.
Battery pack options will range from the base model’s 40kWh up to the flagship’s 85kWh. The 85kWh pack will see the Model S run to 96km/h in 5.9 seconds and provide it with a range of up to 480kms.
Tesla has confirmed that the Model S will be coming to Australia, most likely in the first half of 2013. Australian pricing is yet to be confirmed, but we have been told that the premium luxury sedan segment is our best price indicator.
Set to inject a healthy dose of sexy into the electric car segment, we are expecting the Model S to change the way many of us think about electric cars for the better.
