Thinking about buying a car that is affordable to drive every day? Have hybrids failed to impress you because of their recurring issues? Are electric cars out of the league for you because they take too long to charge? Well with Tesla Model S there are only going to be few complaints from your end.
The 2013 Tesla Model S which is now in the leagues for a public release after years of work invested into it, is all set to lead the torch for the struggling Tesla Motors. Not just that, it is all set to break the long drawn stereotypes placed in peoples’ minds with regard to any electric cars.
Customers get a full-fledged array of options with the 2013 Tesla Model S. Battery packs of different capacities are available ranging from 40kWh capable of running 160 miles with a single charge to a 60 kWh battery capable of running 230 miles. The signature version carries the 80kWh battery that is capable of running a declared 300 mile distance. However, when EPA tested this value, it found the 80kWh to have been able to travel 265 miles before it gave out.
The speed it takes for it to hit 0 to 60 vary, depending on what version you buy. The 40kWh version takes 6.5 seconds, 60kWh takes 5.9 second while the premier 80kWh version take only 5.6 seconds to get to get to 60..not bad for the gas mileage it gets. If you are not impressed with that, how about the most important one, the 80kWh Model S Sport is capable of running over to 60 mph from rest in just a mere 4.5 seconds. Looking at these incredible acceleration rate and speed from the Tesla Model S nearly makes it a fit for the sports car category.
Talking about the exteriors now, the Tesla Model S carries an extremely sport appearance, yet one that is simple and appealing. It can be described as a perfect mix of sporty and classy with one that provides the experience of a luxury sedan. The interiors carry a 17-inch touchscreen panel instead of regular buttons seen in almost every car today. 3G car connectivity is also on offer to make your driving experience even better. Everything feels as classy inside as it does outside of the 2013 Tesla Model S. With basic model starting from just under 50000$, the 2013 Tesla S is a bargain considering the cost of fuel it saves.
Summing up, the 2013 Tesla S is a car that definitely takes the electric car experience to a new level. It definitely breaks the stereotypes that have been set on all hybrids and electric cars by providing a real sports car experience – one that gives many Audis and BMWs a run for their money. That being said, it is not a fit for all pockets and that ends up being the only issue that one can point out to.
