The Tesla Model S is an electric 5+2, 4-door sedan which accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 5.6 seconds and can go 300 miles (483 km) on a single charge. The car sells for 57,400 US dollars (43,400 euros) but comes with a 7,500 dollar tax credit.

Tesla released the new Model S just last week (March 26) and it has already received 520 orders.

Now, they just have to build the car.

The Tesla Model S is an electric 5+2, 4-door sedan which accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 5.6 seconds and can go 300 miles (483 km) on a single charge. The car sells for 57,400 US dollars (43,400 euros) but comes with a 7,500 dollar (5,670) tax credit from the US government. It can be charged using a 120, 208 or 240 volt electrical outlet, which takes hours, or from an external direct current line in about 45 minutes.

The San Carlos, California-based company is currently applying for a 350 million dollar loan from the Department of Energy's Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Program which it will need to build an assembly plant in California to manufacture the vehicle.

You mean, they don't have a plant yet?

Hey, it's an electric car. There's always something about it that's not quite perfect yet.
