It is now 2012, the year of the Tesla Model S. At least, that is what the American company would like us to think and to try to drive the message into our heads they have released a new promotional video.

It is now 2012, the year of the Tesla Model S. At least, that is what the American company would like us to think. To drive the message into our heads, they have released this new promotional video you see above.

The new electric sedan will be launched this summer and Tesla will be hoping for a sure-fire hit. It will be available at three different power levels: 40 kWh, 60 kWh, and 85 kWh. The top version allows the model to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, has an extended range of 300 miles (483 km) and a top speed of up to 130 mph (209 km/h).

The Tesla Model S sedan will launch initially with the 85kWh and 85kWh Performance versions; the 60 kWh and 40kWh versions will launch in the fall and the winter respectively.
