Tesla Sedan Helps You Rationalize An Electric Sports Car

Tesla Sedan Helps You Rationalize An Electric Sports Car

By Evan Ackerman

If you can’t quite afford to blow $109,000 on a Tesla Roadster, how about $60,000ish on a model with two extra doors and a trunk with room for more than golf clubs? The above picture is the preproduction version of the Tesla-S sedan, due sometime in 2010.

The design is very different from the roadster, since the roadster is based on the Lotus Elise while the Tesla-S is a platform developed entirely by Tesla. This is good, because it lets Tesla design a purely electric car from the ground up, and bad because they’re a less experienced car company. But hey, looks good to me, especially since the numbers end up about the same: 240 miles per charge, and a 0-60 time of somewhere under 6 seconds.

You can check out a teaser pic of the Model S’ butt over at AutoblogGreen.
