California-based Tesla Motors has just released a new selection of dynamic photos of its upcoming Model S electric luxury sedan.
With a range of 300 miles on pure electric power and a 0-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds, the new Model S will provide a more functional alternative to the original Tesla Roadster which only has two seats. In fact, the Model S will hold five adults as well as two children in rear facing seats.
The interior will be luxurious with a 17-inch touch-screen display to control most of the car’s interior convenience features.
A rear-drive and an all-wheel drive version will be offered with a starting price of $57,400, which is reduced to just $49,900 after a $7,5000 federal tax credit.
The Model S is scheduled to go into production in the third quarter of 2011 as a 2012 model.
