Inside Scoop: Tesla Model S preview
Friday, June 22, is a big day for Tesla, and possibly a landmark for the automotive industry as well. It marks the first deliveries of the all-electric Tesla Model S to customers.
With a range of over 250 miles for the top end models, the Model S comes out as the most practical electric car yet. Given its range and luxury sedan packaging, it is likely to become a daily driver for its owners, who will also benefit from the fact that the car costs about a tenth to run as a gasoline-engine car.
Tesla will hold an event at its Fremont manufacturing facility on Friday afternoon, where the first customers can pick-up their cars. Tesla will also be showing off the Model S in the 10 colors in which it will be available.
