November 16, 2012. While at the Park Meadows mall last week in Lone Tree, Colorado (near Denver), I was impressed by the Tesla electric car. Instead of a conventional showroom, the automobile was displayed inside a mall store. There was one car on display, plenty of exhibits with information and a knowledgeable staff of two.
The vehicle can accelerate form zero to sixty miles per hour in 5.6 seconds, and get up to 300 miles on a charge, depending on the batteries chosen.
This automobile, the Model S, is very attractive and luxurious. It is competitive with conventional luxury cards as the price is between $50,000 and $80,000. The desired range per charge has a major impact on the purchase price, as batteries are a major component.
