Here at the AutoGuide office, we are quite fond of the Tesla Roadster. We like its battery technology, its range, and most of all its amazing performance. It certainly has shown us a glimpse of the future, and thankfully its not boring.
However, the Roadster model is quite expensive and impractical and Tesla is aware of that. So to appeal to the masses, Tesla has been working on a sedan of its very own, known as the Model S (obviously taking naming inspiration from the Ford Model T).
It looks now that the Model S has gotten closer to production as the company just released a video of it rolling along silently in the countryside. Tesla’s vehicle dynamicist Graham Sutherland says the Model S is “amazingly agile for a car of its size. It has great handling balance and poised ride with communicative steering.” He attributes these qualities thanks to a stiff body and a low center of gravity.
Tesla claims that the Model S will have a range of about 300-miles on a full charge and will accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 5.6 seconds. Sounds good to us and we hope to get our hands on one in the near future.
