Tesla Model S Performance
After ten years of effort to create the perfect electric vehicle, our Californian friends have done it, and then some. The Tesla Model S is more affordable than most other vehicles in its class, and even performs better than a moderate number of them. The price may be similar at an $87,400 price tag, but consider the fact that you pay absolutely nothing for gas due to the plug-in-anywhere technology. With the 85 kWh Performance battery you can travel up to 265 miles on a full charge; about the same distance a V-8 of similar power will take you on a full tank of gas. If that doesn’t astonish you, then this will: the Model S Performance takes you from 0-60 in just 4.2 seconds, and up to a top speed of 130 mph. Plus, it boasts glamorous luxury such as electronic door handles that submerge into the door, leather and a 17-inch touchscreen Tesla display replacing the traditional center console. The Tesla touchscreen takes vehicle controls to a whole new level, controlling lights, the panoramic roof and even the Smart Air Suspension system. Tesla really is creating the sedan of the future.
