Tesla will reportedly price the Model S sports sedan from $95,000, with official prices expected to be released in the coming days.

That's almost $20,000 more than you'd be asked for the equivalent model in the USA, but, crucially, Australia-bound cars will have the extra impost of a 10 percent GST and the Luxury Car Tax.

(The American market also benefits from significant government incentives for the purchase of ultra-green cars - another advantage not found in Australia.)

So what does your $95,000 get you? Spec details are still under wraps, but that's the price for the entry-level Model S with the 60kW/h battery.

In 60kW/h configuration, the Model S can sprint to 96km/h in 5.9 seconds, and pumps out 225kW of power from its electric drive motor. Maximum range is a claimed 333km on a single charge.

For the top-tier P85 model, which uses a 85kW/h battery pack, performance jumps significantly. The 0-96km/h dash falls to just 4.2 seconds, while range rises to 424km.

According to Gizmodo, Australian pricing for the P85 flagship is expected to hover around $200,000. Roughly double what the same model costs in the USA.
