BMW and Mercedes have something electrifying to worry about, after Tesla announced a sportier version of its Model S that is expected to go from 0-60 in under 4.5 seconds.
Anyone want to lend me $50,000 for one of these?
Only $50k? I'll take two!
One for me?
That is really impressive. I hope the battery recharge times are realistic. Though I prefer the roar of a petrol engine, this should sound equally good like a jet.
"I hope the battery recharge times are realistic" tha article says under 1 hour I like the fact it can get 320mpc
That's exactly what I meant. The article says that. Companies say loads of times. That's why I said "realistic". Users need to actually experience it and provide feedback.
Tesla, while I do support any company making electric cars that are actually decent in performance and quality. Tesla has a long history of large claims and several difficulties. However, I still have my fingers crossed and we'll see what will happen. but that 50k price point...errr yeah. Doesnt that defeat the whole purpose of owning an electric car, To beat the gas prices?
More to beat the dependency on gas and to protect the environment imo.
